FIVE SECONDS is not much of a gap!? That's embarrassing for the Lexus, especially considering how much more it costs than the Ferrari (before it was sold out, anyways). The Camaro is only like two seconds behind the LFA.

Here's my take: The F30 335i is not the car for people on this forum, it was made more comfortable and quieter to appeal to the mass market who buys BMW, Benz and Audi cars mainly for the badge and the luxury. We already know the M135i has been mopping up the competition and that an M235i is on the way, I think an M335i will also eventually come to market and will slot in nicely between the 335i and the M3, while serving as a natural competitor to the Audi S4.
