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

Lexus meanwhile, made an interesting deduction about the transmission on offer for the new RC-F. There'll be an eight-speed auto gearbox with a new e-diff powering the rear wheels, and rear wheels only - there won't ever be a 4WD RC-F. When we asked Lexus boss Mark Templin for a manual to complement the old-school feel generated by that bloody big V8, he replied: "Everybody wants to talk about a manual, but no-one wants to buy one".
