I think the 2015 Lexus RC F is one of the more interesting products to come from an automaker whose normal offerings are the car equivalent of sleeping pills. Do you know who's not interested in it? Japan's automotive journalists, apparently.
Just hearing the word Lexus tells you what kind of car you think you'll get. It'll be reliable and luxurious, but also sedate and, well, boring. But what about the Lexus RC F, an M4-rivaling, beluga-snouted sports coupe with a thundering V8 and a throttle pedal that might as well be labeled "drift switch?" Is there…
As automakers are wont to do, Lexus is turning its M4-fighting 2015 Lexus RC-F into a race car that will compete in Japan's Super GT grand touring series. To show off what the car will look like, and possibly as a nod to the French robots' Grammy win this week, they dressed up their crew like Daft Punk. Sweet.
You're on notice, BMW M4. The 2015 Lexus RC F is here to put some fear into you, both with its potent V8 engine and that terrifying spindle grille.
