2015 BMW M4 Takes on 2015 Lexus RC F on Head 2 Head

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 10/30/2014 Megan Stewart

The 2015 Lexus RC F is new to the sports coupe game, and while it may not have the same pedigree as the 2015 BMW M4, can it live up to the German car's performance? On this week's episode of Head 2 Head, both cars are taken to the Hyundai Proving Grounds to see which car is faster and more fun to drive.

Research

We've been thinking about which luxury sports coupe we'd choose out of the two, and it's come to a head-to-head battle to see which model will pull ahead. Each has its their own merits, with the BMW benefitting from controllable rotation and plentiful torque, and the Lexus offering a better engine note and higher revs.

But when testing starts, there's a clear difference in performance between the two coupes. The Lexus RC F is over 400 pounds heavier than the BMW M4, and while it may have more horsepower, the BMW's 17-lb-ft torque advantage will definitely come into play when the two models are put through the paces at Hyundai Proving Grounds.

But we don't want to give everything away. Check out the video above to see the 2015 BMW M4 go head- to- head against the 2015 Lexus RC F.
