Today’s Face Off Friday takes a look at two performance enhanced models: the BMW M4 and the Lexus RC F. Both models are brand new, and after BMW’s restructuring it’s interesting to see what other automakers are doing in response. With beautiful designs, awesome modifications and plenty of power, both of these are sure to do well.
BMW has given it’s new 4-series the M treatment to present the 425hp and 406 lb-ft of torque M4. The model’s 3.0-liter inline six gets TwinPower turbo technology and transfers all its force to the rear wheels.
Outside, the M4 is crafted with Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic, an aluminum hood with power dome, gets stopping power from a set of M Carbon ceramic brakes, sits on a set of 18-inch wheels and has a quad exhaust.
The interior of the BMW gets a multi-function leather wrapped M Sport steering wheel, an advanced instrument cluster and monitoring system and Anthracite Carbon and leather upholstery.
Lexus RC F
The upcoming RC F is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine, and is enhanced for performance all the way around. Lexus offers up an adaptive variable suspension, Lexus dynamic handling system and, for the first time, torque vectoring differential. Combined, these elements offer premium handling, stability and agility, all adaptable to the driver’s preferences.
The outside of the model comes standard with a set of 19-inch alloy wheels, a distinct F-Sport mesh grille, and takes many functioning design notes from the automaker’s performance powerhouse, the LFA.
Inside the RC F you’ll find an F-Sport perforated leather steering wheel and shift knob, silver performance trim, exclusive Rioja Red seating with contrast stitching and a few more nods to the LFA.
