Arrow First Comparison Look at BMW M4 versus Lexus RC F

First Comparison Look at BMW M4 versus Lexus RC-F

One of the BMW M4 Coupe's biggest rivals in 2014 will be the upcoming Lexus RC-F Coupe, the first official photos of which have just been revealed.

While BMW has downsized the M3/M4 engine from the predecessor V8 to a bi-turbo inline 6 cylinder (425 HP / 406 LB-FT), Lexus has retained a V8 for the RC-F. The engine is said to be a higher power version of the 5 liter V8 from the IS-F, but outputting 480 HP @ 7300 RPM (up from 416 HP in IS-F). Torque specs will be announced at Detroit. It's believed that the transmission will be an 8 Speed Sport Direct Shift Transmission.

Full details of the RC-F will be released next week at its 2014 Detroit NAIAS reveal, where the F80 M3 and F82 M4 will also be making their debuts. We will update this comparo with a full specs comparison next week.
