2015 Lexus RC F Coupe is cheaper than the BMW M4 Coupe, but slower

Article by Christian A., on September 11, 2014

Lexus officially announced that its RC F Coupe will be priced from $62,400 in the United States, excluding the $925 destination charge. This means that the new vehicle will actually be less expensive than the BMW M4 Coupe, which starts at $64,200 excluding $950 destination charge.

Still, the vehicle will not be as quick as its German rival, because Lexus says that the RC F Coupe accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.4 seconds, runs the quarter mile in 12.5 seconds, while top speed is 170 mph or 273 km/h. For those who don’t know, the Lexus RC F Coupe is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine that delivers 467 hp (348 kW) and 526 Nm (389 lb-ft) of torque.

The engine is bolted to an 8-speed automatic transmission and power is delivered to the rear wheels. Meanwhile, the BMW M4 Coupe uses a 3.0-liter high-revving six-cylinder in-line petrol engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology that produces a maximum output of 431 hp and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque.

Mated to a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox, the engine pushes the M4 Coupe from 0 to 60 mph (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 155 mph or 250 km/h. BMW offers the optional M Driver’s Package which increases the top speed to 280 km/h or 174 mph.

The Lexus RC F comes as standard with 19-inch wheels with a split five-spoke design, made from forged aluminum, but as an option the Japanese manufacturer offers new ones featuring a polished 20-spoke design hand-finished by craftsmen.
