I love the sophistication of the standard RC350 F-Sport but it lacked performance to match it's looks. No one wants their 60k sport coupe to get blown away by a souped up Golf R-type great car that it is, so I turned to the aftermarket and with a growing owner base performance options are out there now and for less than 3 grand I have an RC350 F-Sport faster than its big brother the RF-f. It's still quite and smooth riding when I want it be but a real beast when I let it loose. I love driving this car just for the sake of driving it...even more than my classic 911. Strong recommendation
This is a smooth running comfortable car with lots of power. The paddle shifters give you an extra "kick-down" gear when you want to zip around someone or merge onto the freeway. The F Sport has plenty of power for street driving, but don't be confused by the two designations Lexus uses for the RC. There's the F Sport and the even more upscale version just called the RC F. The F Sport is the tamer 3.5 liter 306 hp one. The F is the even more upscale screamer V8 that has 400+ horses and the price to match....about $30k more. Almost two years after I acquired the car it have proven to be the most reliable brand I’ve ever purchased. This is my fourth Lexus since 1998 and none can be be beat for reliability. The RC-350 continues to be outstanding value. I would buy it again.
