British magazine Autocar chooses the winner between the Japanese and German sports coupes, after a drag race and a drift session on a track track.

The 2015 Lexus RC F performance model gets its powerful roar from more than 450 horsepower and more than 383 lb-ft torque. It's significantly heavier than the M4 - it tips the scales at 3,958 lb (1,795 kg).

The high-revving six-cylinder turbo engine newly developed for the new BMW M4 Coupe produces maximum output of 425 hp. Its peak torque soars to 406 lb-ft (550 Nm), outstripping the figures recorded by the outgoing BMW M3 by well over 30 per cent. The kerb weight of the car is 3,466 lb (1,572 kg), which helps to ensure better fuel economy and makes it more agile.
