Yes, we all know who’s going to win this one, what about the other two participants? Top Gear magazine brought the BMW M4, the Lexus RC-F and the GT-R together for a drag race and while we get why the first two being there, adding the Japanese AWD machine doesn’t really makes sense. Anyway, let’s pretend that this is a race between the two RWD performance coupes. The Lexus is one of the last cars of this kind you can get with the naturally aspirated engine, in this case a 5.0-litre V8 making 470 horsepower and 391lb ft of torque. BMW on the other hand uses a twin-turbo 3.0-litre straight six unit which makes only 425 horsepower but being turbocharged means that the torque on offer is much more, at 406lb ft. So, van the 200kg heavier Lexus really challenge the BMW M4 on a straight line?
That was really over the top. What do you think of this next video?
