The sleek new RC 350 coupe is already bringing shoppers into Lexus showrooms, many for the first time. On its heels comes the RC-F, a high-performance variant that carries the most powerful V8 in the brand's history. The very idea of a moderately priced, track-worthy Lexus is reason enough for enthusiasts to pay attention.

What's New For 2015

Like the RC 350 on which it's based, the RC-F is all-new this year.

Choosing Your Lexus RC-F

If not for the trademark spool grille, you'd be hard pressed to identify the RC-F as a Lexus. The designers have done a masterful job of incorporating some of the best styling themes found in this class. The RC-F is slightly lower and longer than the RC 350 and benefits from a carbon fiber roof panel and active rear spoiler that deploys above 50 mph.

To back up its aggressive looks, the RC-F gets a 467-horsepower 5-liter V8, so expect to scoot from zero to 60 mph in about 4.5 seconds. Rear-drive models get an eight speed automatic with paddle shifters, while all-wheel drive versions come with a six-speed automatic instead. A selectable driving mode system allows you to tailor the car's responses for everyday driving, sprinting around a track, or somewhere in-between.

All models carry an adaptive sport-tuned suspension, summer performance tires on 19-inch wheels and digital performance gauges. The rear-drive RC-F can also get a torque-vectoring differential that transfers power between the rear wheels for optimal high-speed handling.

The RC-F comes standard with NuLuxe (premium vinyl) sports seats, silver interior trim, keyless access and ignition, LED exterior lighting, a rearview camera and a 10-speaker audio system with HD radio. The Premium package adds heated and ventilated front seats with driver memory, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and carbon fiber interior trim. A leather interior and a sunroof are standalone options.

The available navigation system comes with a touchpad controller, a slew of integrated smartphone apps and streaming audio. The All-Weather package features headlamp washers, wiper deicers and a more powerful heater. There's also a collision mitigation system with integrated adaptive cruise control. Other options include 19-inch forged alloy wheels and premium triple-beam LED headlamps.

CarsDirect Tip

Our first picks off the option list would be the leather upholstery and sun roof, which seem mandatory in a car like this. Beyond that, the Premium package provides an excellent mix of safety and comfort features.
