Lexus RC F vs. BMW M4 Autocar

Autocar has published a video comparison of the Lexus RC F and the BMW M4 — be warned, this is more about powerslides and drifts than how the cars stack up against each other:

Sports + mode clearly not being used during "drag race", who knows where else; and they still liked it better....

    That drag race was a serious joke.

    I think they had the car in the right setting for the drag race actually. From the look of it the RCF was in Sport S mode (from the cluster format). If it was an AVS equipped vehicle (like and IS F SPORT or RC F SPORT) you would want the suspension setting at soft (ie SPORT S mode) so the weight could transfer to the rear driven wheels. Since RC F does not have AVS or an active suspension, and the differences between SPORT S and SPORT S+ on the RC F is quicker downshifts and Traction control settings (allowing for more slip) I think they had it in the right setting for a drag race. Though I agree the RC F is a more balanced car, the M4 has a ton of torque low in the revs. I'm not surprised by the result at all.

It's pretty clear in that pic how the RC F looks like a stand alone model while the M4 is the super 4 series. As for the review both are awesome cars.

I found the video of the NEW fleet of Dubai Police. Can you Imagine if Dubai Police had the LFA on their fleet as the Limited Edition Austin Martin ONE-77 And the Land Cruiser looks nice though :3 . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIR9IfW9KSM ENJOY ;)

Finally Autocar got it right this time a fair review side by side Comparo, I guess this proves again that the RCF does not need you to be an advance driver to enjoy the serious road and track handling.Which is perfect for me.

This is a bit off the racing topic, but it's bugging me. Why is Flaxen NuLuxe/Leather not available in RC F Sport and RC F models? The RC is brilliant, but the interior colors are limited and lacking IMO. By contrast, BMW offers a number of interior colors geared toward either a sport and/or luxury feel.

    Yes, leather is available on the RC-F. You are misinformed.

    Thanks, I'm aware leather is available, but it's not available in the Flaxen color like it is on the standard RC 350. Flaxen is a great color, any ideas why not?

It's all bull crap I have driven both at a race track and that M4 will not walk the RCF and from 50 to 100 the m4 has no chance. It's easy to allow one car take the lead. Their is no way to control the RCF in the corners when giving it full throttle. The RCF pulls harder from 40 mph by far. We tested the RCF in the qtr and it came is at 12.56 and 0 to 60 at 4.18 seconds and this was on a fairly cold day.
