Motor Trend :2008 BMW M3 vs. 2008 Lexus IS F vs. 2008 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG

http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...son/index.html

1st Place
BMW M3
Speed, balance, and athleticism converge in today's best compact, high-performance sport sedan.

2nd Place
MERCEDES-BENZ C63 AMG
A solid, emotive machine that works as everyday transport-and accelerates like a first-gen Viper.

3rd Place
LEXUS IS F
Lexus's first effort in this category is a good one, lacking in only the finest of details.

The Sedan looks sweet in that pic!

Were these test done seperate? Because the #'s are the exact same as the individual test's that have been done over the past month or so.

"The M3 feels like it was born this way."

Nice words to hear

Not only did the M3 win, it KILLED the IS-F and C63 in lap time. A wopping 4.4 seconds ahead of the IS-F.

M3 - 154.2 sec.

C63 - 158.0 3.8 sec. back

IS-F - 158.6 4.4 sec. back

This is a more relevant comparo than the recent one (M3 coupe vs new MB C63 AMG, and Audi RS4). You just cannot compare the coupe vs sedans, and the Audi is an old fart (the new Lexus makes more sense).

Thanks for sharing.
