Lexus' new coupe comes in two main forms: the RC 350 and the RC F. The RC 350 is intended to be the mainstream model and the most popular seller,...
... while the RC F is a more exclusive, track-ready high-performance machine. The RC 350 offers a satisfying and sporty ride. Its ride isn't as pillow-soft as a
Lexus ES, nor is it intended to be. The RC's suspension is tuned to hug corners, which makes it stiff on rough roads. Highway cruising, however, is refined. The RC 350's 306-horsepower V6 offers plenty of gusto and transmits a surprisingly satisfying exhaust note. RWD models enjoy a smooth 8-speed transmission, while AWD variants use an older and slightly rougher 6-speed auto (the Lexus RC does not offer a manual transmission). The 467-horsepower RC F has two personalities. On the road it's as refined as the RC 350. On the track, it's an absolute howl.
