2015 Lexus RC F: Our As-Tested Price Just Shy of $80K
May 4, 2015
"Our RC F is a pre-production vehicle on loan from Lexus and has one option package that is not yet available on production models. It's called the Performance package, and it bundles the torque-vectoring differential ($1,750 a la carte), 20-spoke wheels ($1,500 a la carte), and a carbon-fiber roof and rear spoiler. We will post a future update when pricing is announced."
We wrote this in the introduction of our 2015 Lexus RC F when it was loaned to us. At the time, we didn't know the full MSRP. We estimated the price at $77,115. Lexus recently updated pricing info for the RC F so we can update our calculations. Read on for final pricing.
Prices started at $63,325, including destination. An RC F in orange, blue or white required the addition of the Premium Package ($4,400). Sonar parking sensors are included in the Premium Package, so that knocks off $500 from our original estimate. A 17-speaker Mark Levinson sound system with navigation added $2,840 while the red leather seats added another $800.
The 20-spoke wheels our car wears were originally included in the Performance Package but were ultimately dropped. Add another $1,500 for this stand-alone option. Our running total was now $72,865.
Included in the Performance Package is a limited-slip differential, which uses a clutch at each rear wheel to distribute torque according to driving conditions. The suite also saves weight in the form of a carbon fiber-reinforced plastic roof and rear spoiler. The Performance Package rings in at $5,500 on top of the options list in the preceding paragraph.
All in, our RC F has an MSRP of $78,365.
