Lexus RC F: prices revealed

Order books for the BMW M4-rivalling Lexus RC F are now open, priced from £59,995

Lexus has revealed prices for its BMW M4-rivalling Lexus RC F. The range starts from £59,995 for the standard car, rising to £67,995 for the RC F Carbon model. The RC F stunned crowds at the Detroit Motor Show in January and boasts ‘more than’ 450bhp.

That Lexus is going after BMW M4 customers is clear when you look at the RC F’s standard specification list. It includes parts from big name motorsport suppliers – such as brakes from Brembo and suspension components from Sachs. All RC Fs also get huge alloy wheels and an active rear spoiler that changes its profile at speed.

There will be plenty of toys available too, with even the basic model coming complete with LED headlights, a 10-speaker premium stereo, DAB radio, DVD player, sat-nav, and dual-zone climate control – giving separate ventilation controls for the driver and front passenger.

The interior is finished in high-grade leather upholstery and gets electrically adjustable heated and ventilated front seats, plus ‘F’-themed detailing, on the steering wheel, pedals, trim and seats. Options include Adaptive Cruise Control with a Pre-Crash Safety system and a Mark Levinson surround sound stereo.

The RC F Carbon adds to that list with a clever torque-vectoring system (a first for a rear-wheel-drive car) that will offer three driving modes. The torque-vectoring system can also be fitted to the basic car. Meanwhile, the Carbon’s bonnet, roof and spoiler are constructed from lightweight carbon fibre-reinforced plastic.

Performance figures have yet to be revealed, but with plus-450bhp produced from its 5.0-litre V8 engine BMW M4-beating figures are on the cards. Expect 0-60mph to take less than 4.5 seconds and, if the car’s not electronically limited, a top speed in excess of 175mph. A Lexus spokesperson confirmed to Carbuyer that the Carbon model will be ‘significantly’ quicker than the standard model.

Order books for the coupe are now open and the first cars will be delivered to their new owners before the end of next year. For our reviews of the current Lexus range, visit the Carbuyer Lexus reviews page. Scroll below for the RC F's full specification list.
