BMW M3 v Mercedes C63 AMG v Lexus IS-F video

Published: 08 May 2008

BMW’s M3 is the evergreen performance coupe, but just how good is the saloon version? AMG can make Mercs go fast in a straight line, but what about around corners? And then there’s Lexus, the Japanese brand that has majored on luxury since it launched nearly two decades ago. Except now they’ve gone and made an IS with a 5.0-litre V8.

To find out which is best Chris Chilton and Ben Barry take the trio to an empty test track, along with a Scrabble board and a blindfold.

Don’t forget, if you’ve got any videos you’d like to share with the world you can publish them directly onto this website. (If you’re having problems viewing this video you may need to update to the latest version which you can do free here.)
