RC F Sport Coupe The Golden Child of Lexus Performance
In a delicate alchemy of styling, performance, and value, the new Lexus RC F Sport coupe unequivocally establishes its capabilities as a rousing personal sport daily driver.
Liberal use of the current Lexus styling palette with complex aerodynamic accents and the forcefully memorably branded front grill and star fighter lighting design, make the RC F a head turning drive-by.
Inside the elaborate seating and precise interior design, finish details and tech array are unmistakably Lexus quality. The track inspired instrumentation, cockpit styling, color LCD multi-function display and racing steering wheel are just a preview of what might be the most exhilarating drives ever from Lexus – short of the $400,000 LFA V10 issued 5 years ago.
The thrilling 467 horsepower 5.0 liter V8, race tuned Brembo brakes and a sport direct shift eight-speed transmission with steering wheel mounted paddle-shifters, give this rig track ready power and manners.
The technology behind the $64,000 Lexus RC F drive is fascinating boasting a standard limited slip differential that pushes power to the rear wheels and the torque vectoring system that dynamically distributes torque to the outside rear wheel for faultless control.
