One of the biggest and most notable rivalries in existence right now includes the all-new BMW M4 and Lexus’ first ever crack at BMW’s legendary two-door sports coupe–the new Lexus RC F. And to see which is better, MotorTrend just featured the two going Head 2 Head against each other in this latest episode.
BMW went their traditional route of lightweight and returned to using a straight-six rather than the last model’s naturally-aspirated V8. This is also the world’s first BMW M3-successor with a turbocharged motor. The Lexus on the other hand uses brute force and lightweight with a potent 5.0L naturally-aspirated V8, both of which send more than 400hp to the rear wheels.
It’s a tight competition, but it’s the sort of thing us car guys live for.
