The 2014 BMW M235i and the Lexus IS F don’t really compete with each other, but that didn’t stop Roman and Nathan from pitting the two cars against each other in a drag race. The Lexus IS F has a 5.0L V8 that put out 416 horsepower with 371 lb-ft of torque paired to an 8-speed automatic. The 2014 BMW M235i has a 3.0L turbocharged engine that puts out 320 horsepower with 330 lb-ft of torque and is also paired with an 8-speed automatic. Check out the video to see which is faster off the line.

Nicole Wakelin fell in love with cars as a teenager when she got to go for a ride in a Ferrari. It was red and it was fast and that was all that mattered. Game over. She considers things a bit more carefully now, but still has a weakness for fast, beautiful cars. Nicole also writes for NerdApproved and GeekMom.
