All I know is that without Lexus solidifying the "Final" numbers (HP, torque or weight) it is really hard to say...but if it weighs 3,968 (188 more than an ISF) and is 450hp than I would assume with the 275 rear tires (better traction) that it should be a bit quicker than the ISF. However, if it comes in at those numbers I think MYISF (with current mods) will be quicker...

Again, 477 PS or 471 HP. Not 450 HP.

ISF was 4.6? I will go 4.2-4.3ish. They are putting wider tires on this F and PSS as stock unlike the ISF, and more power

Torque vectoring diff too. It helps immensely in hard launches distributing torque side to side to the rear tire with the most traction

I'll estimate 0.1 seconds behind the M4. There's a lot more to 0-60 than simply HP and weight. The M4's carbon fiber drive shaft (SIGNIFICANT decrease in rotational inertia) is a big gain, just like the DCT, that I've not seen anybody yet mention.

Then again, who really cares about 0.1? It's a driver's race at that point. Lexus is aiming for performance on a track, not a drag strip, anyways. Let me present the TVD as evidence to this statement.

I'd like to seem them bring it in at 0.1 faster than the M4.

It would present a good marketing angle for them... and it would probably irk the boys at BMW, so there's always that...

Both of them will have Michelin Pilot Super Sport so they will be evenly matched on tires. Although, I believe RC-F rear tires will be bigger (285).

I have Michelin Pilot Super Sport in 205/45/17 and it is the best tire I have ever driven. Super sticky and handles exceptionally well without being noisy or harsh.

I know its not stock but a tuner just got 479 to the wheels by increasing boost from the stock 20 PSI to 24 PSI....

Link please. I don't think it's possible with just 4 psi increase

* - you have to remember that it was done on a Dynojet, which "can" read a little higher than other dynos, so those gains may be slightly optimistic.
