In the highly-competitive sports coupe market, the Lexus RC F is becoming a firm favourite.
It is only the third high-performance Lexus as part of the F Sport range, following the much-loved and highly-rated LFA and the IS F sports saloon.
Under the bonnet is a 5.0-litre V8 that sounds fantastic. It produces plenty of bhp – 471 to be exact – which gets the car from 0-62 in just 4.5 seconds.
The car is supremely comfortable as it builds up speed and doesn’t feel you are being catapulted to 62mph, which is a credit to the high-quality interior and impressive build.
It is when you start building the revs that the Lexus begins to feel really fast. Torque really starts kicking in after about 4,500 revs and that is when the car starts to feel very fast!
But don’t be fooled by the V8 engine and high-performance stats – the RC F can do everyday tasks as well, and for a car with such power, it is very practical.
On a long journey, the refined cabin makes it very comfortable and it eats up the miles with ease. Its suspension is quite firm and excellent on motorways, yet still soft enough to overcome potholes with ease.
It has a 366-litre boot and lots of handy storage spaces. There is also plenty of equipment such as sat-nav, a 10-speaker stereo system and plenty of safety features.
There is no questioning the RC F is for those who want to stand out. It is a real head-turner.
No matter what angle you chose to gaze at the Lexus, it is a very beautiful and striking car.
