The 2015 Lexus RC F is the powerful new high-performance coupe from Lexus. The car not only looks amazing but performs great too. Lexus built this car to perform head to head with the BMW M4 and Audi RS5, which is no small task. Car and Driver has a complete review of the RC F and I encourage everyone to read it if you're interested. One take-away from the review is the issue of weight. The RC F was meant to challenge the BMW M4, but the M4 is some 400lb lighter. That makes a big difference.
Vehicle Type: Front-engine, rear-wheel drive, 4 passenger, 2-door coupe
Base Price: $63,325
Engine: DOHC 32-valve V-8
Power: 467 hp
Torque: 389 lb-ft
Performance: 0-60 (4.4 seconds), 0-100 (10 seconds)
For some people Lexus will never be a "high performance" automaker like a BMW or an Audi, but I like to remind those people about the LFA. The Lexus LFA is one of the greatest supercars of all time. Lexus has proven it can do high-performance as well as anyone. Whether or not the 2015 RC F is a good example of that is for you to decide.
Here's a good video review of the 2015 Lexus RC F from AutoGuide.com:
