The Top Gear car review:Lexus RC F
For:Headturning looks, excellent interior, oozes big-engine GT car appeal
Against:Weight begins to show when you push it hard, not exactly cheap
What is it?
More Japanese muscle car than fine-handling coupe, the RC F has an uprated 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8, much the same RWD chassis as the old four-door IS-F (there will be a four-door version of the RC F in due course, it is rumoured), and the unmistakable new Lexus design cues. Behind that Predator-esque grille lie a boat load of electronics, too. Most of them are designed to hide the RC F’s weight on the track and some of the systems, like the TVS torque vectoring setup, are optional.
