In comparison, the M3 at 3600lbs has done 4.1 to 60 and 12.5 in the 1/4 mile. So is the C63 with only 450hp from a 6.3 liter is also weak? Do you even know what you're talking about, or are you just trolling for the sake of trolling. You can say the same thing for the M3 buy not making more than 420hp to compete with next RS4, since the RS4 has set the standard 3yrs ago.

An ISF with 500 hp would have been a M3 killer. Now with the M3 pricing, the ISF is relegated instantly to an also ran.

Aside from the straight-line performance, what is the ISF really offering? It doesn't even have a proper manual transmission! (in the form of a true manual or SMG type).

Stick these cars on a track, I know which car I would take.....

Mr. Lexus what are the selling points for the ISF? What? Faster? Better engineering? More nimble? Brand Premium?
