The new performance two-door coupe signed by Toyota’s luxury brand Lexus, the RC F, is challenging the popular BMW M4 Coupe in a new video.
The best choices for a petrol head when it comes to a two-door performance vehicle, at this time, are the BMW M4 Coupe and the Lexus RC F, considering the fact that the Audi models are getting older and that Mercedes-Benz is still not offering a Coupe version of its new C63 AMG generation, for the moment at least. But is the Japanese car worth mentioning in the same phrase as its main German rival? Well, this is a good question and you may want to take a look at the video posted below, in which the two of them are going head to head.
The Lexus RC F is packing a 5.0 liter V8 engine under its hood, which is capable of producing a total output of 450 HP (335 kW) and it has a peak torque of 518 Nm (383 lb-ft). The unit is connected to an 8-speed Sports Direct Shift transmission, which is allowing the car to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.7 seconds, before going up to a top speed of 270 km/h (168 mph). The BMW M4 Coupe has a 3.0L TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder inline unit, rated at 431 HP (317 kW) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration takes 4.1 seconds and top speed is 250 km/h (155 mph), risible to 280 km/h (174 mph) with the M Driver’s Package.
