Lexus RC which was revealed this year is an entry-level luxury 2-door coupe with sleek sporty design. We are sure that the 2015 Lexus RC F version of the car benefits from a powerful racing powertrain and slightly different features, both inside and outside. All this combined makes it a unique beast.
This model comes equipped with a 5.0L V-8 engine making up to 467 hp and 389 lb-ft of torque by being tied to an 8-speed automatic transmission that can be also controlled with paddle shifters. With its FR layout, RC F has the beastly V-8 engine tucked away under the long low hood and offers RWD-only configuration. This amount of power will certainly make this RWD car great fun to drive.
2015 Lexus RC F Powertrain
Its exterior design looks flawless. From the get-go, designed from the asphalt towards the roof, RC F is a real modern sports car with a touch of class. Huge spindle grille stretches across the whole front fascia and sharp two-part headlights are finding their spot between it and the pronounced wheel arches. Hood has an air intake in its middle, and you’ll also find air inlets behind the front fenders, all these allow better air supply to brakes and engine. Rear arches are even more protruded, and after a sweeping carbon-made roofline, you’ll get the angular finish with sharp trapezoid tail-lights.
Specs Of 2015 Lexus RC F
Inside, RC F offers two color options. First is a black background with red leather seats and trim, and another one is black base with gray-metallic accents. Dashboard is quite heavy for a sports car and has plenty of overlapping elements. Huge center stack divides the cabin in two, and on it, you’ll find all the controls RC F has to offer. Above the clock and couple of air vents, there’s an additional cluster which accommodates a touch screen display responsible for navigation and infotainment purposes. There’s plenty of soft-touch leather and carbon fiber touches around the cabin for a more premium feel Lexus is known for. RC F also has heated and ventilated front seats, available sunroof and standard 17-speaker Mark Levinson audio system.

Sprint from 0 to 60 mph is done in 4.4 seconds and these are respectable numbers, but RC F carries a burden of a few hundred more pounds than it should have. That’s why Lexus must work harder to compete with its opponents and fuel economy ratings are dropping to 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. RC F is some $20,000 more expensive than a base RC and its price tag says $63,325.
2015 Lexus RC F Price
The 2015 Lexus RC F looks like a great addition to Japanese manufacturer’s lineup, especially thanks to its contemporary design and striking look. Performance is also one of its strong points, but for a $60,000+, you can choose between a plethora of great vehicles. If you really are that much into this model then you will need to wait slightly longer for it to be delivered.
