HEAD TURNER MEETS HEART RACER
Hand-built V8 Power
Hand built and tuned by stethoscope in our Tahara plant, this incredible 5.0-litre V8 engine develops 477 DIN hp and more than 520 Nm of torque. The cylinder head and all moving parts are designed to provide increased maximum power at higher engine revs.
Sports Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) ensures that the enormous power of the RC F can be enjoyed smoothly and safely, even when cornering at high speed.
Benefiting from carbon fibre moulding technology developed for our Lexus LFA supercar and IS F CCS-R racecar, the RC F model is 9.5 kilos lighter than the standard car.
8 Speed Sport Direct Shift
The V8 engine delivers power via an 8 Speed Sport Direct Shift (SDS) sequential transmission with manual override. The transmission’s shift control has been enhanced to respond precisely to even the slightest dip or lift of the accelerator pedal.
19" Forged Alloy Wheels
The RC F’s alloy wheels are forged (rather than cast) in a process that emulates the blows of a blacksmith’s hammer to combine strength, through an improved metallic structure, with lightness.
Leather Sports Seats
High-back seats feature Lexus’ integrated foaming technique, which achieves a cosseting, highly supportive fit. Seat cushion shape and firmness have been optimised to reduce pressure on the sensitive ischial region.
