Stock M3 vs. IS-F

If you could race the BMW M3 vs. Lexus IS-F in a race - with no mods/tunes on either car - which do you think would fare best in terms of overall speed?

I think Top Gear did a comparo, and if I remember rightly, it was close. I believe the ///M3 had a slight edge over all. Great comparo!

I would def think the M3 is going to have the edge in several categories. I know the ISF having a bigger engine has more gusto from the lower rev range than the more high strung, smaller displacement, 4 liter in the M3. Overall, I think most on this board would say the M3 is the better car (particularly in coupe form) but the ISF is definitely a good effort from the team at Lexus.

Just a little FYI for Top Gear fans here, Season 13 continues in the US - next Monday Richard and James race across the UK in a Porsche Panamera. If you haven't seen it yet, it's def worth a look...

Here’s the sneak peek: Video - Top Gear - BBC America
