A clip recently released is showing which has the fastest acceleration between the BMW M4 Coupe and the Lexus RC F.
Did you ever wonder which would be faster between a BMW M4 Coupe and a Lexus RC F? Well, you sure have, especially if you’re a petrol head, but the video posted below will be erasing this question from your head and replacing it with an answer. The answer is quite simple, “yes, it is”, but then another question will come out “why?”. Well, before trying to answer this second question, you should check out this clip.
Good, now let’s talk numbers, the MW M4 Coupe has a total weight of 1,572 kg for the manual transmission and 1,612 kg for the automatic. Power is being provided by a 3.0 liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder inline engine, which is capable of putting down a total output of 431 HP (317 kW) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the model needs 4.1 seconds and top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph) or 280 km/h (174 mph) with the M Driver’s Package.
The Lexus RC F on the other hand is weighing 1,765 kg but it is packing a 5.0 liter V8 engine under its hood, which is more powerful than the six-cylinder one found on the German car. The unit is rated at 450 HP (335 kW) and 530 Nm (390 lb-ft) of torque, and it is connected to an 8-speed Sports Direct Shift transmission. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), this needs 4.5 seconds and top speed is 270 km/h (168 mph). The answer to the “Why” question is simple, BMW is losing traction twice while accelerating and this is why it is slower than its competitor.
