Lightbulb BMW M235i Drag Races Lexus IS-F (Updated with Full Comparison Review)

BMW M235i Drag Races Lexus IS-F (Updated with Full Comparison Review)

COMMENTS

Updated 4/15 with full comparison review.

The guys at TFLCAR pit the M235i against the Lexus IS-F in a drag race. Watch the results of M235i's 320 HP / 330 lb-ft (turbo 3.0L I6) versus the Lexus IS-F's 416 HP / 371 lb-ft (5.0L V8), at a mile above sea level.

According to manufacture quoted stats, the IS-F does 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds with its 8 speed auto and the M235i covers 0-60 in 4.8 (auto) / 5.0 (manual).

I think that this situation is the best to describe "turbo, the replacement for displacement".

I realize they were in thin air but that was quite the throbbing the IS-F took.

Amazing! High altitude or not, that was pretty amazing.

Japanese car companies are incredibly strange. When they put their minds to it, they can create a tech tour de force (LFA, GT-R) but they can't seem to take that tech and make it consistent across the rest of their lineup. This is where BMW and Porsche succeed.

Awesome. Now, I can't wait to see what a tuned 235i will do.
