CAR Magazine Comparison: Lexus RC F vs. BMW M4 vs. Ford Mustang

Lexus RC F vs. BMW M4 vs. Ford Mustang

Ben Barry from CAR Magazine has just compared the Lexus RC F with the BMW M4 and Ford Mustang — the entire print article has been posted on the Lexus Enthusiast forums, but * spoiler *, the RC F took top spot in a surprising upset:

Think of the RC F as the place where a Nissan GT-R and a last-gem BMW M3 crossover and you’re somewhere close: the crazy Gundam-robot-like Japanese design, the barking V8, the frisky but perfectly balanced chassis, all of it feeds into a package that feels unique yet somehow déjà vu.

And when I get to pick which car I want to drive home, I don’t think twice about jumping in the Lexus. It’s the best of an imperfect bunch, but that doesn’t mean I don’t desperately want to own one all the same.

It’s a strong win for the RC F — it could be argued that the Mustang was outmatched, but it did finish second ahead of the M4. One of the best parts of the article is this infographic comparison:
