Lexus Shows Off Their Muscle with New RC F Sport Coupe
If you had to describe Lexus as a brand, there as several words that instantly come to mind. Sporty car might not be at the top of the list, but after seeing the 2016 Lexus RC F it should be. Debuting in 2014, the RC F has only been growing in popularity, and the 2016 model does not disappoint.
The Ford Mustang competitor is really making any comparison superfluous. The powerhouse 5.0-liter V8 engine offers drivers a thrilling 467 horsepower. For those out there looking to go from zero to sixty mph in less than 4.5 seconds, this is the car for you. With an estimated 25 mpg on the highway and 16 mpg in the city, it’s pretty obvious the 389 lb-ft. of torque and 4,800 rpm are working hard to get you where you need to go, and fast. The RC F is also certified as an ultra-low emission vehicle as well, which for a sports car is pretty impressive. Additionally, any sports car enthusiast knows with all that power behind you a good braking system is a must. The RC F packs some serious stopping power with a Brembo® four wheel Anti-Locking Braking system with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Brake Assist.
The RC F is a newer venture for Lexus who has without a doubt dominated luxurious sensibility time and time again. This new sporty alternative was designed to evoke the classic love an owner has for their dream car. The pursuit of an emotional connection drove Lexus during the design of the RC F. Anyone who takes a spin behind the wheel will be able to appreciate the tight handling and responsive transmission. Turning up the volume on the 17 speaker Mark Levinson audios system will put a little extra excitement into zooming down the highway.
The body of the RC F is a car lover’s dream. With a silhouette tied together with the fierce styling of jutting lines, scoops, and flairs the RC-F is more than just a basic long hood-sort deck pony car. The front “spindle” described designed grille is definitely a focal point on the sporty Lexus. The RC F is offered in seven different colors and has an MSRP of $62,805.
