Did This Lexus RC F Really Just Crush a BMW M4?

Step up and tell us what happened here.

According to their bare stats, a drag race between a Lexus RC F and a BMW M4 should produce a no-brainer winner. While the Lexus makes more horsepower than the BMW (470 over 425), it weighs 100-200 lbs more than the Bimmer and produces less torque than its German rival. So how did this RC F stay ahead of the M4 all the way to 200 km/h (124 mph), where the tables finally turned? The answer could lie in the BMW's loss of traction early in the run. Or does the Lexus have a hidden secret that we didn't know about?

Check out this acceleration comparison to 280 km/h and tell us what you think:
