The RC F’s driver-focused cockpit will keep you perfectly relaxed and concentrated on the road or track ahead. Behind the beautifully crafted steering wheel, the sumptuous front seats offer 8-way electric adjustments.
The V8 engine delivers power via an 8 Speed Sport Direct Shift (SDS) sequential transmission with manual override. When using the paddle to downshift (in just 0.2 seconds) in Manual mode, you’ll hear the distinctive throttle 'blip'.
The RC F’s instrument display features a large tachometer that changes depending on driving mode. There are also digital and analogue speed readouts, a differential torque vectoring monitor, a G-Force meter, oil and water temperature gauges, mileage information and even a stopwatch.
Lexus Media Display features a 7-inch screen operated by a touchpad. You are able to adjust audio and climate settings via this display. Compatible smartphones can be ‘mirror linked’, letting you view and control certain elements of your phone.
Engage reverse and the view behind the car is relayed to the Lexus Media Display. On-screen guides are also displayed to assist parking.
Touch Pad with Remote Touch Interface lets front seat occupants interact intuitively with the central display. Ergonomically designed, it is as easy to use as a smartphone or tablet.
Vehicle performance can be fine-tuned using Drive Mode Select. ECO mode reduces emissions and conserves fuel while, for everyday driving, NORMAL provides an ideal balance of power, economy and ride comfort – and CUSTOM lets you adjust the RC F to suit your mood. For enhanced drivetrain responsiveness, simply switch to SPORT S or SPORT S+ mode.
The RC F’s 17-speaker, 835 Watt Mark Levinson® Premium Surround system is tailored to the acoustic properties of the cabin. It delivers a peerless 7.1-channel digital home-theatre experience, enhanced by Clari-Fi™ that rebuilds sound lost in MP3 digital compression.
The RC F’s beautifully crafted high-back sports seats are made using an integrated foaming technique for a an athletic fit. The deep bolstered panels provide comfort and lateral support, as well as keeping you firmly gripped through every turn.
The driver and front passenger can heat or ventilate their leather seats. This adds to the sense of luxury, especially in extreme weather conditions.
Jewel-like, triple ‘L’ LED headlights use the same light source for high and low beam, with the RC F’s impressive aura enhanced by L-shaped full LED daytime running lights.
The RC F has superb aerodynamics thanks to details like a near-flat underbody, triple canards on the front spoiler, fins on the rocker panel for increased vehicle stability, vertical fins on the diffuser and an active rear wing.
Hand built and stethoscope tuned, this naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine develops 464 DIN hp and 520 Nm of torque. Thrilling to drive, advanced sound engineering creates a deeply resonant tone up to 2800 rpm, and a higherpitched roar as revolutions rise above 6000 rpm.
Using technology first developed for the LFA supercar, the Track Edition benefits from carbon-ceramic disc brakes, which are 22 kilogrammes lighter than those on the standard RC F.
The rear light cluster combines elegant LEDs arranged in Lexus signature ‘L’ form. Thick-wall moulding technology gives a strikingly bold presence.
Featuring twin tailpipes left and right, the rear bumper and diffuser have been optimised by sharpening the corners, with air ducts and fins for improved handling.
The foundation for the RC F’s outstanding handling is its high rigidity body. Numerous specialised manufacturing techniques further enhance strength, including body adhesives, laser-screw welding and multi-spot welding.
