2015 Lexus RC F - Photo by HOOKERno1
The RC F is much more than a GS Sedan minus a couple doors. While not entirely bespoke, it is bred from top stock. For an optimized track width the front clip is from the GS Sedan. For stiffness the middle is taken from the IS convertible. The rear is taken from the IS Sedan. Put together with a revised naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter V8 from the IS-F and pushing the rear wheels, the RC F is a formidable sports car. With an immense powerband peaking at a 7,300 RPM redline, the noises it makes can be subtle until asked to produce juice; then listen for a raspy rumble that says things are about to go quick. While the RC F provides all the creature comforts one would expect, this coupe is a performer that is ready to tear up the tarmac.
