Lexus RC-F to Take on BMW M4


2015 Lexus RC-F profileI think we were all impressed by the BMW M4 when it was finally revealed at the end of last year. Muscular styling, 425BHP and a 0-62MPH time of just 4.3 seconds. The turbocharged German has a lot of the cards stacked in its favour when it comes time to take on the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and Audi RS5. However, Lexus fancy themselves as a fourth contender in this already bloody arena with their new RC-F.

To rival the BMW M4, the Lexus RC-F with its similar long bonnet and short tail proportions packs a naturally aspirated 5.0 litre V8 engine. This unit produces 450BHP, 25BHP more than the M4’s twin-turbo straight-six. Bold body lines and angular grills give the car an aggressive appearance that has only really been seen on the LFA in the past. Speaking of the LFA, Lexus say that much of the technology from their flagship has gone into the RC-F.

We shall update this post when more details are released…
