Video: Top Gear – BMW M3 Sedan vs. Lexus IS-F

This weekend on Top Gear Clarkson answers the question if the new Lexus IS-F is beastly enough to beat the BMW M3 Sedan. Of course, this high-performance sedan race in incomplete without the new 2008 Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG but we’re guessing Top Gear couldn’t get their hands on one for the show.

We’d love to go on and on but you only have a limited time to watch the video before the YouTube Police yanks its down.


2008 BMW M3 Sedan: 4.0L V8 making 414-hp with a maximum torque of 295 lb-ft. 0 to 60 mph comes in at 4.8 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph.
