We have these machines thoroughly and a winner was actually hard to by. At first, we would have picked the BMW M3 to win this battle, but amazing happened. The Lexus has changed the way we think about the premium brand.

The IS, GS, ES, LS, and all those models have been the of things we think about in to fall asleep and in fact, worked better than sheep. While we were asleep with the thought of exciting cars filling our Lexus must have our dreams, as they created a car for us the driving enthusiasts — who to a soft suspension like we to swine flu; not well.

BMW on the hand has always been one of our brands. The 3-Series has been for years and the 5-Series and 7-Series are brilliantly luxurious, but fun to drive. might be a bit confusing at the moment, but cures that quite the M division.

Let’s spice up a little shall we? We reviewed car a while ago, so consider it an old The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is like an ax murderer who next door, always a way to destroy its next victim. that might not sound all wonderful in real life, fantastically invigorating in car form.

cars with monster two with four doors, the with two. Which come out on top, the IS-F, or the M3?

Hit the jump to find out .


Life isn’t all that bad now. Three weeks, different, but sensationally brilliant Each car wears something a special; an M, F, or AMG badge. For those in the these letters signify very special. Raised flared wheel arches, brakes, sporty seats, and amounts of power all what machines are all about. Sitting their cabins is like behind the wheel of a fighter jet -if had wheels — with buttons that allow you to ride settings, traction and controls, and paddle shifters. It come cheap though, as one of these vehicles is going to a large sum of cash.

The BMW M3 was launched in 2007 as a coupe, and then as a a year later. While we have loved to get our hands on one of the four-door variant is being after the 2010 model and seeing as how we want to keep comparison relevant for more a few months, we opted for the coupe. The M3 a 4.0-liter V8 with 414 horsepower, is all connected to a manual transmission. It be noted that the M3 packs the amount of ponies, but it does the least.

The Lexus IS-F is a piece of kit. To be honest we sure what to make of it. making something fast and is like the San Diego Padres the NL West. Under the hood of the induced IS is a 5.0-liter V8 with 416 two more than the M3. The motor is to a wacky eight-speed transmission manual mode and paddle That motor and the car’s helps it fall right in the of the performance group.

From the AMG division of Mercedes-Benz, we the lovely and quite shiny The super C-Class is larger and than its predecessors, and much aggressive looking. The motor the hood is truly incredible. A V8 with 451 horsepower easily the cake of this group. being said though, it is a brute. The V8 tower of power is to seven-speed automatic trans-SpeedShift, offers Comfort, Sport, and modes.

If your looking for speed thrills, the C63 is by far the all out favorite. off in this bad boy is like being out of a sniper rifle. The C63 will hit 60 per hour in just 4.3 seconds and the — when in sport — is lightening fast. If you noise that will windows, the C63’s exhaust is something to behold. The growl comes from those pipes is intoxicating to say the least.

not to say that the IS-F doesn’t good, because it does. it doesn’t rev as high as we would liked — only rpm — it does the job. The is quiet and refined at lower but step on the gas and get the rpm needle up and a deep from the V8 engulfs the entire When it sport mode, the transmission is hard and quick. not as quick as the C63 to 60 mph, but it’s in the center of the bunch again, at 4.6

Rounding out the herd is the M powered With less power, torque, and a manual transmission, you expect the M3 to be a tad slow compared to the Well, you’d be right. The fun is found when your mashing it to the 8300 rpm redline while it might not be as quick, still just as fun. The is light and easy to use, but the is a little disconnected. We’d take a proper manual one of the technological automatics any day, no how slow they might be. the lack of stats, the M3 is just as as the IS-F to 60 mph.

On public speeding is seen as a bad thing, but ever said anything corners. The ability to take a is one of the most important things in a car this. The Mercedes has a crisp with plenty of feedback the wheel. The Lexus uses steering, which hurts the when your really it the beans. All that aside, the is sensational, but it does understeer a tad at the with a slight disconnected If corning is what you’re the M3 is the car to get. The feedback is brilliant and the is light and nimble.

The Mercedes is a road car, but a tad stiff. It corners very well and always letting you know going on. At high-speeds the stability of the car is and bumps and road imperfections upset the handling.

The Lexus has a hard ride. If we had one major with it during our week the car it was the back breaking ride. normal driving conditions, the handles with ease, but it to the limits and it severely understeers. On the side, the IS-F does the quietest ride of the three.

Taking corners in the M3 is a privilege, as balanced and composed in any situation. The BMW is the most agile of the three. The through the wheel is sensational and the car is letting you know what’s on. Bumps don’t seem to the handling and stability at speed is on. The ride is also the best out of the on normal roads.

Moving the interiors of each car, we to take a look at the seats the drivers will be seating in piloting these performance In the IS-F the seats are sensational. The leather absorbs the bumps might be felt with the suspension and it would be easily to sit in on a daily basis. In keeping the overall theme of the car, the C63 are heavily bolstered and quite On the racetrack, the seats were but for road use, we aren’t too with them. Sitting in the BMW is on normal roads, but they use a little more support for driving.

The BMW’s cabin is German. It’s built to the degree of quality and it’s and sedate. The sound system was and the controls were easy to out. The Lexus was a bit of a let down in the department. We liked it, but some not be fans of the aluminized carbon-fiber that is on the center counsel and a few areas. The car’s controls are identical to the normal IS so we weren’t impressed, but they were to use. The Mercedes is nearly the as the BMW, all business and all German. is a navigation screen that out of the dash and some neat trim.


After spending with each of these we had a verdict to deliver. Driving the and the Mercedes feel as if they normal cars with sporting touches. The M3 on the other feels like it was designed for from the start. It’s in nearly every way.

being said, we would liked a little more get up and go the M3. It lacks the torque of the other two and it never really feels as in a straight line as the other

The Lexus is the new boy among the three. could have imagined such a car could be created by a sedate company. It was fast, and wonderful to drive. It wasn’t all fun and though. Some of the interior might not suit everybody’s and the car feels way too detached at the limit. It the fastest to 60 miles per hour, or 100 It wasn’t the quickest around the or in the quarter mile either. The of the car is no more than the other so you won’t get that normal value. We really liked the it did most things very but it never did anything better the other two.

The Mercedes was a if not scary, car to drive. Taking at speed is like playing a loaded gun. You get miles and of grip and then, out of nowhere, it and sends you into a tree. It be scary, it might be vulgar, but so much fun. The noise and are two things that everybody who speed should experience. The car was the to 60 mph, the quickest to 100 mph, and the in the quarter mile. If speed is you want, the C63 is the perfect fit.

The BMW M3 was suppose to be good. Let’s it, mostly all M3 products over the were sensational, and this car was no The V8 is strong and fast, if not a little The handling was the best by miles out of the and the interior is well built and laid-out. We like the way it looks and we that it can be used on a daily The ride is hard enough for use, but forgiving on the road. never punishing like the and the Mercedes. That’s the reason why we are it as the winner of the group.
