Admittedly, there is one major area that the automotive journalists have failed to explore: in-brand competition.
Sure, there is the occasional video or article comparing the newer version of the car with its predecessor or even the BMW M2 vs M4 mashup outlining why the smaller vehicle is much better value, but it is nothing like what racing driver Randy Pobst has managed to do here.
His skill and access to just about any vehicle he wants allows him to think up experiments like this, the comparison of the entire performance segment of the brand.
It’s the tough feat to do for, say, the entire AMG division, and at the same time, who wouldn’t want to see that? His experiment here is the thorough investigation into the character of the entire Lexus performance division. Three tracks await Randy Pobst and his guest Justin Bell, each with the separate fast Lexus.
Even though there are only two Lexus F cars in a lineup, the GS-F sedan and two-door RC-F, there is the new Lexus in the mix that features that the same 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated V8.
That would be the LC500. Lexus even thinks it is good enough to be considered as the cheaper alternative to the Aston Martin DB11, and whether or not that is true, the real treat here—aside from the visual representation of valuable racing tips— is the sound of that 5.0-liter V8 which begs the question, and why use turbochargers again?
