A joy to behold, superbly built and good to drive, the RC F has a so much going for it. This quick and powerful two-door coupé also comes with a raft of standard equipment.
The sporty RC F looks good from back to front. An electrically retractable spoiler is one of the rear fascia’s highlights, while 19-inch forged aluminium wheels with a ten-twin-spoke design adorn the flanks and a bold spindle-styled grilled dominates the front-end. Other standard fixtures include power-adjustable, foldable, auto-dimming and heated door mirrors and rain-sensitive windscreen wipers. Exterior illumination includes automatic high-beam headlights, LED daytime running lights and LED rear combination lights.
Each of the RC F’s four traveller positions is upholstered in semi-aniline leather. These include heated and ventilated front sports seats, which provide the passenger with eight-way-adjustability and the driver with ten-way electronic adjustability and two-way lumbar support. Also featured are a perforated multi-adjustable leather steering wheel and a leather-trimmed gearshift lever. Push-button engine ignition, power-operated windows, electronic two-zone air conditioning and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror are standard inclusions too, and the car possesses a 366-litre luggage compartment.
When it comes to performance, the RC F is – to put it bluntly – a bit of a beast. It is powered by a 5.0-litre petrol engine (paired with eight-speed Sport Direct Shift automatic transmission), which produces 477bhp and 530Nm of torque. This V8 unit delivers 0-60mph in roughly 4.7 seconds and has a top speed of 168mph.
The vehicle comes with a ten-speaker sound system, which includes DAB digital radio and an FM/AM tuner. Also featured is Bluetooth connectivity, USB and AUX inputs, a seven-inch display screen (which can be operated by a remote touch pad) and Lexus Premium Navigation.
A number of passive safety features include an eight-airbag system, audio-visual seatbelt reminders, seatbelt pre-tensioners and ISOFIX attachments. Lane Departure Alert, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Vehicle Stability Control and an Anti-lock Braking System are among the array of driver aids featured.
