Exclamation Will the Lexus RC-F be a BMW M4 killer?

The Lexus RC-F will cost over $100k but will be well worth it.

With a...
  • 5.0-liter V8 engine expected to make 455 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque
  • Completely new chassis, specially tuned for high-performance
  • Carbon fiber parts: hood, roof trunklid


basically this will s*** on and dethrone the M4...anyone still interested in the M4?

This Lexus is going to carry an almost $50k premium over the M4. I think it lines up better with the M6 and its 4.4L Twin Turboed V8 good for 560 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque, plus the $100k + price tag the M6 carries...

But maybe, just maybe BMW gives us an M4 GTS or CSL or whatever three letters they fall in love with this time.

The much higher price point of the Lexus makes it a different breed from the M4. Even if the car is nicer, I think that BMW has such a following that the M4 would still outsell the RC-F.

I feel like so many stories I read are about which vehicle is going to dethrone a leading BMW. The fact that I have read these stories all over for such a long time tells me that no vehicle has ever actually beat out the BMW -- they all just try to.

This is like the IS-F vs the M3 all over again


In a nutshell. From a performance standpoint


NO

@Andrew319

Anymore updates on this Lexus? You really think this will compare to an M4?

Performance aside, where's the sexiness factor in this RC? It's got that predator-like front fascia, and I don't know what the ****'s going on aft of the rear wheel. Toyota/Lexus should never have discontinued the Supra. That was their true supercar.
