Designed to be the newest track-star under the luxury Japanese-American automaker’s fleet, the all-new Lexus RC-F boasts of a high-performance package, which combines the legendary Lexus LFA’s top-level wild and wicked nature, with the accessibility found in most of the brand’s current line-up of sports coupes and sedans. Launched in the Philippines last November 18, 2014, this “Baby LFA”’s front fascia, spindle grille, and side profile possesses the LFA’s raging aura, while still being uniquely designed. Moving behind, the RC-F’s killer quad-exhausts, divided in twos, dominate the left and right side of the lower bumper. Slated under the brand’s performance line via the F on its name, the interior of the RC-F also evokes an aura of track-readiness with comfort, making the driver feel one with it.
Under the hood is a 5.0L 450+ horsepower 32-valve V8-Engine, connected to an 8-Speed Sports-Direct Shift transmission, driving the rear wheels, and enabling endless amounts of drifting exhilaration and spirited driving. Combined with its 3-mode Torque Vectoring System, it can behave in comfort and in raw track-day action in no time. Bold and uncompromised, the Lexus RC-F continues the awesome legacy the LFA has left behind. And yes, it sounds wicked too."
