2015 Lexus RC F First Drive - VIDEO

F Marks the Spot for Driving Pleasure
by Craig Cole

Hereís an automotive riddle for you: what two-door car is blazingly fast but doesnít stop? Which one is cool to the touch and scorching hot at the same time?

Iím not describing the new Jaguar F-Type, a Porsche 911 or even Chevyís Corvette. The car in question is actually a Lexus. The brand-new RC F is a high-performance coupe thatís got serious substance backing its style. It handles well, is blazingly fleet and because itís a Toyota at heart itíll never quit.
RC F You

Yep, believe it, this is a Lexus with attitude. This well-mannered luxury brand thatís known for selling legions of RX crossovers and ES350 sedans has built a coupe with the design, dynamics and on-track performance to compete with some pretty thorny rivals.

One glance at the spec sheet reveals the RC Fís got the right ingredients to go wheel-to-wheel with cars like the Audi RS5, BMW M4 and Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.

In recent years the company has been on a mission to inject more passion into its product portfolio; theyíve been busier than an librarian with obsessive compulsive disorder and a jumbled-up card catalog. More aggressively styled vehicles, enthusiast-focused F-Sport models and the world-beating LFA supercar have proven that Lexus actually has soul, not just sensibility and the New RC F is the next step on this continuing journey.

Beautiful, but I think it goes faster than 170 mph. The older ISF goes 175 mph. I also think it 0 to 60 mph should be better.
