In a way, the Lexus RC-F is more like the previous generation BMW M3 Coupe than the current M4 and that is obviously due to its naturally-aspirated V8 engine. However, the 5.0-liter V8 engine produces 471hp, slightly more than the M4, which settles for 425hp from a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-six engine.

Second generation Genesis ups Hyundai's luxury ante offerings

It's big, bold and equipped very well, but is Hyundai 's new Genesis sedan enough to lure customers away from the established European and Japanese competition?

And why not? Hyundai makes good cars and has come a long way in a relatively short time - and don't forget what Toyota and Nissan did some 25 years ago when they stunned the market with their first kicks at the luxury car can: the Lexus LS 400 and Infiniti Q45.

DRIVEN: Mercedes-Benz W205 C-Class in France

While no longer the starting point, it continues to define the market in many ways, so a swanky projectile that offers excellent penetration is a must - the category is still the key one in pulling in buyers making their entry into the premium segment, bragging rights, brand clout, that sort of thing.
