Lexus won this time on all categories.

It looks hotter and more aggressive. V8 smoke Inline-6. More reliable and last longer. Cheaper.

This might actually be the very 1st time that a Japanese car smoke an European car in all categories.

The NSX came close last time, but it's V6 never sounds anywhere as hot as a Ferrari V8, it can't beat the sexy Italian styling either.

The GTR smoke the 911 Turbo in speed, but again doesn't look as hot.

I just remembered the 1998 GS400 smoked the E430 and 540i in all categories also, so this would be Lexus 2nd time in smoking the world

BMW fanboys will always say BMW are always much more superior regardless of what the rest of the world does

I popped over to take a look. Not as bad as you'd think, though lots of comments about the front "trying too hard" and the usual spindle grill comments, but lots of compliments as well.

hummm....still wish the RC F headlights were a little cleaner looking...this would complete the look IMO.
Also, BMW nails the wheels on its M cars.

Interior of RC F looks a solid 1-2 classes above the M4. One of Lexus' nicest, IMO.

Also, those wheels on the RC F are really rubbing me the wrong way. They look like they belong on a 90s minivan or something. Yuck.

They flipped the image to have a better comparison between the two cars.

They are hating on the "ugly" grille and "boring" interior.

If the badges were reverse the opinions would be also. I like both. But The RC-F looks more muscular, stronger, aggressive.

RC F has nicer seats, but I think the M4 interior other than that looks pretty nice as well. Carbon leather type trim on the center tunnel by the iDrive, Carbon trim on the dash, Bigger Nav screen, somewhat more "technical" look to the steering wheel.

the BMW dash is very nice...carbon/gloss finish with the amber/red backlighting is a great touch to me personally. BMW has come a very long way from their lasting, basic outlay, dash. However, I think they'll give Lexus the nod based on the LFA guage though, and seats
