The BMW M4 with manual transmission competes with the Lexus RC F in the Drag Race

The BMW M4 with manual transmission competes with the Lexus RC F in the Drag Race

The manual transmission is an endangered breed not only in the performance segment, but in general. The BMW M “stubbornly” keeps the clutch pedal alive, as demonstrated by the uncompetitive M3 and M4. The new M2 will also allow drivers to row on their own gears, so enthusiasts still have time to buy the cars of their dreams. This M4 Coupe also has six gears instead of eight in automatic as it fights the Lexus RC F.

Both are productive coupes with rear-wheel drive and weigh about the same. However, there is one noticeable difference, because despite this power, the Lexus RC F is atmospheric. It has a larger 5.0-liter V8 compared to the 3.0-liter BMW M4 Coupe with twin-turbocharging.

The Japanese rival on paper produces 467 hp, which is slightly less than the 473 hp produced by the S58 engine of the Bavarian sports car. Because the M4 benefits from forced induction, horsepower and especially torque develop much earlier in revs. However, the larger NA Lexus RC F sounds positively glorious.

Another difference between them is the BMW M4 do-it-yourself gearbox, while its rival from the land of the rising sun has an eight-speed automatic. In general, cars switch faster than humans, but not all. It is also worth noting that the Lexus RC F produces about 500 hp. after the modernization of the exhaust, so technically it has an advantage in terms of peak power. However, BMW usually underestimates its engines.

If you’re familiar with Lexus, you’ve noticed that it has an aero kit with front ducks and more. The boldly painted RC F spent most of its time in the rear-view mirror of the BMW, as it could not keep up at higher speeds.
