The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Lexus RC F can flog the road course with V-8 brute force, but it's just a bit less lithe and talented than its lighter-weight rivals. The 2016 BMW M4 delivers on-track performance that also translates to the street, and buyers can choose from a sleek coupe or a wind-in-your-hair convertible.
