Despite the large number of dependable and dreary luxury cars that Lexus has produced, the company continues to reinvent itself. The LFA supercar and the F Sport models are a demonstration of the company’s new found passion and the 2016 Lexus RC F car is no exception.
This vehicle certainly writes the next chapter in the journey of Lexus. The RC F is a high performance car that is stylish and attractive, with this version we are getting sporty model that is also very sleek. The modifications on the design and engine of this model make it incomparable to the previous versions of the RC line. We are not saying that an RC model does not look great but still RC F is something special.
2016 Lexus RC F
The design of the 2016 Lexus RC F has been based on the RC model that has been modified to make it more stylish and more aggressive. The most distinguishing feature of the exterior of the car is its signature spindle grille which has an F pattern on the lower side that gives it an aggressive look and powerful stance. The hood of the car is also taller while at the front we have main headlight and separate lower part that represents the daytime running light. Looking it from side we immediately notice sharp and aerodynamic lines in combination with large alloy wheels and high performance tires. Impressive looks is continued to the rear where we are getting sharp tail lights, spoiler and quad exhaust with quite interesting layout.
Release Date Of 2016 Lexus RC F
The interior has also been refurbished with state of the art touch screen navigation and entertainment systems. There is also slightly more leg room at the back to enhance comfort but do not expect that taller people will be happy to drive on the back seat. For seats Lexus used authentic leather and these are quite supportive so you can expect high level of lateral support even on track but also great level of comfort that will be enough even on longer journeys. Carbon fiber and silver accents are well incorporated and to further emphasize the sportiness of this model we are getting paddle shifters right behind the wheel.
Lexus RC F Engine
The engine of the 2016 Lexus RC F is going to be more powerful as compared to the other versions or sports cars in Lexus lineup. This vehicle will have a 5.0 liter V8 engine that delivers about 477 hp at 7100 rpm and 390 lb-ft of torque from 4800 to 5600 rpm. The engine will be able to use Atkinson cycle to lower consumption of fuel when full power is not needed and you are moving at steady cruising speed. Power will be delivered to wheels through an 8 speed automatic transmission. The acceleration times of this car will also be improved and thanks to the torque vectoring differential feature with standard, track and slalom driving modes you will be able to really push it through corners.
2016 Lexus RC F Interior
The 2016 Lexus RC F has high tech shock absorbers, special control-arm suspension at the back, advanced coil springs and stabilizers. The car is quite great on road and comes with speed-sensitive spoilers which are designed to stabilize the car at high speed. The cockpit of the car is stylish even though it does not have many unique accents. The steering wheel will have a thick grip and the seats will be higher than those of the previous versions. Overall we are quite pleased with the offer of this vehicle.
2016 Lexus RC F Price
There is no confirmed release date yet but the car is expected to be released in late 2015th and since it has been delivered to the market as a redesign for the 2015th we expect it to remain pretty much the same. There is also no information on the price but again we do not expect to see any major change so expect it to be priced at $62,400 or slightly higher.
