2015 Lexus RC F
We are well aware of spec sheet racing done between brands. When you get into a car like the RC F it's best to enjoy the fact this is a car that could be considered by some to be a dream machine. Sure it has problems with the infotainment software, and the seat coolers not working properly. But the thing is, the car does everything. You could legitimately drive the car every day and enjoy the comfort, interior quality and overall power from the 5.0L naturally aspirated motor. In a world now littered with turbo cars trying to re-create that magic, this car falls back on something that has always worked for a track and street car, a linear and powerful motor.
While the car desperately needs a manual gearbox, the torque converted 8SP in S+ and Expert mode provide the fastest shifts on track for a gearbox of this type. The magic is when you are on the street in normal mode it goes full luxury car mode - smooth.
True double-wish bone suspension, advanced multi link rear using forged aluminum control arms and wheels. The RC F has the engineering to take it seriously. Lexus didn't just pack in a big V8, we get heat management from hood vents, fender vents, oil cooler, trans cooler etc. Essentially you can take this to a track and back home without having to switch or worry about anything.
But, this is not a race car and neither are the M3, M4 C63 AMG, C7 Corvette. These are all street cars with track capability. It's likely maybe 5% of the owners would ever take them to a track and if they did <1% would ever do wheel to wheel. So throw the spec sheets out because this car is fast, fun and very good all around to drive in any condition.
