Lexus RC-F vs BMW M4: fight!
As prices for the new V8 Lexus are announced, we see how it stacks up against the Beemer
Posted: 15 Aug 2014
The Lexus however, has taken a more old-school approach, and one we whole-heartedly approve of here at Top Gear. It has decided to fit a stonking great 5.0-litre V8 under the bonnet of the new RC-F (though it does go into Atkinson-cycle mode, like a Prius, under light cruising); it's related to the old V8 that sat in the last IS-F, and should thus be an absolute screamer. We're promised over 450bhp and a not inconsiderable 383lb ft of torque. The Bee-Em edges it on torque, but this comfortably produces more horsepower.
