The new RC F from Lexus is the most powerful V8 road car the brand has ever built, with its naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 engine boasting 477 DIN hp and 530 Nm of torque, propelling the performance vehicle from 0 – 60mph in just 4.4 seconds up to a top speed of 168mph – and it’s a surprisingly spacious four-passenger coupe.
Experience pure exhilaration from the race-ready cockpit, utilising the numerous technological advancements that the RC F boasts. Plus with a new chassis and refined suspension, this pioneering Lexus creation offers an unforgettable drive with supreme cornering agility, designed to be pushed to its limits - that’s why it has been endurance tested at the world’s most demanding racetracks.
This Lexus performance coupe is built at the marque’s award-winning Tahara plant, where expertly skilled ‘Takumi’ craftsmen perfect each and every vehicle produced. In the RC F, they create a car that according to Lexus, marks where head turner meets heart stopper.
The RC F features undeniably aggressive styling from every angle, both inside and out, complementing and enhancing its enviable muscle under the bonnet.
From its mesh-pattern spindle grille and wide, low stance to its 19-inch forged alloy wheels, active rear wing, air scoops and cooling ducts, the RC F exhibits many features that offer functional beauty, along with race-bred aerodynamics.
This same sport-oriented theme continues in the cabin of the Lexus RC F, with a driver-focused cockpit for a race-inspired feel. The beautifully crafted, electrically adjustable, high-back leather sports seats have been specifically situated for the optimum driving position, with racing pedals at the ready to offer sublime control and performance.
The advanced interior boasts LFA-inspired instruments for added authenticity, in an environment that has been designed to keep the driver completely relaxed, with full attention on the road or track ahead.
Lexus has gone above and beyond with safety in the RC F, allowing you to push it to its limits but still feel completely secure in its abilities, when cruising on the motorway or taking on the track.
The passenger safety cell is lined with eight airbags, plus all seatbelts are fitted with pre-tensioners, keeping all occupants as safe as possible in the unfortunate event of an accident.
Innovative safety systems available on the RC F include Sports Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM), which adjusts throttle, steering and suspension settings to provide sportier performance whilst ensuring the smooth, safe enjoyment of this powerful Lexus creation.
Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert help the RC F to avoid danger, with radar devices mounted in the rear bumper detecting vehicles in blind spots and at the rear, alerting the driver of their presence. Blind Spot Monitor comes as standard on Premier grade.
Experience added control with Torque Vectoring Differential in the RC F, a Lexus-first, plus benefit from performance on demand with eight-speed sport-direct-shift transmission, which offers almost instant upshifts at your fingertips.
