The M4 is in a completely different league. And we're talking about the base model.

Come on, if you’re gonna say the RCF is stupidly expensive for how slow it is, the. There’s the LC500 which carries a 6 figure price tag which is slower than any of the F series lexus cars

Wins ten of eleven tracks and the M4 gets only forty more points.

Wow the RC-F is so embarrassing for a $65k sports coupe

A 0-150 time of 24 seconds is very impressive for a car that traps 112 mph in the 1/4 mile. That's the acceleration of an NA Lexus. 119 mph is normal for a car that does 150 in 21 seconds.

It’s all about feel and sound. Do you prefer a proper n/a engine or a “ Dyson” under your hood !

Why is it surprising ? Lexus weighs ~ 300 kgs more than M4 and M4 has about 470-480 bhp for real.

Unfortunately, the rcf is no match for the m4.

Does anyone know when lexus will introduce a twin clutch transmission for their f performance cars ?

are nissan and mitsubishi the only jdm cars using twin clutch in japan ?
