Toyota Battles BMW: 1400-hp 2JZ Supra vs S58 BMW M4 vs Lexus V8 — Cammisa's Ultimate Drag Race Replay - Hagerty Media
The 2023 BMW M4 Competition, with its twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six, has got some serious competition coming for it this week, on Cammisa’s Ultimate Drag Race Rewind—and that competition is Toyota.
The long-awaited 2022 Toyota GR Supra meets us on the track, to compete with three BMW B58 engine counterparts—the BMW M240i xDrive, 340i, and M4 xDrive Competition. If you thought Toyota would roll up to the starting line as a team of one, think again—the 2023 Lexus IS 500 F Sport Performance, joins us as Toyota Motor Corporation’s V8 challenger, to squash the straight-six army. Last but not least for team Toyota, we have… a modified 1400-hp Mk IV Supra from 1993.
Does Toyota’s newest Supra, toting a BMW engine and borrowed parts from the BMW Z4, best BMW’s own factory engineering? Will the V8 Lexus triumph over a sea of inline-sixes? Or, could a JDM classic released In 1993, with a boosted 2JZ-GE engine, completely squash its modern competition?
All of these questions, and more, will be answered to culminate in the final verdict—will Toyota triumph over BMW, or will BMW be the victor? Join Jason Cammisa as we put these great performance cars to the test—then pause, rewind, and slowly break down what makes each of these automotive contenders unique.
