Video Comparison: Lexus RC F vs. BMW M4 & Audi RS 5

Lexus RC F BMW M4 Audi RS 5

AMCI Testing, one of the most respected independent automotive testing companies in the world, has conducted a comparison between the Lexus RC F, BMW M4, and Audi RS 5:

Considering the video is being hosted on the Lexus USA Youtube page, it would be easy enough to write off the results — however, this quote from the AMCI Testing website set my mind at ease:

Only AMCI Testing work meets the strictest requirements set forth in Section 5 of the FTC Act, substantiating claims and guarding all parties against unfair and deceptive advertising practices which are subject to prosecution by the federal government.

As proof of the unassailable substantiation services we offer, no ‘AMCI Testing-Certified’ competitive claim has ever been retracted due to a legal challenge- a record that spans nearly 30 years.

I love the RCF, but seriously hate that orange color. I know Lexus worked hard and is proud of it but I'm just not a fan...just my opinion though haha

This shows how much BS Motor Trend, Car and Driver etc... were shoveling, trying to convince us the M4 was better. M4 is lighter, and may be faster in a straight line, but its power delivery sucks (turbo engine + high low down torque = way too much oversteer); and it takes alot of steering corrections just to be manageable, at speed. These objective results are much more believable and in line with reality. It is clear that BMW is no longer the "Ultimate Driving Machine", now if these biased mags and journalists would only start telling the truth because the writing is clearly on the wall.

a user on GCF mentioned that AMCI is a marketing company that promotes a product over it's competitors the guy on GCF worked there and had to promote an audi over its competitors (to potential customers), him being neutral chose to stay objective and tell which car is better at given area given this inside info we know that the track was built for the RC-Fs handling and dynamics, but we've potentially discovered what sort of tracks the RC-F will win on

    I agree that this review sounds biased. I have seen Justin Bell on "Shut Up and Drive" and you do get the feeling he might be a Lexus man. In the episode where he drives the GS 350 F Sport he makes out that it is almost race car like in its performance. This is the car I currently drive and whilst it's a good comfortable cruiser with a bit of grunt, it really is a bit soft when pushed.
