2015 Lexus RC F: That's a Wrap
August 17, 2015
We never quite came to a consensus on whether or not we liked our long-term 2015 Lexus RC F. We certainly liked its 5.0-liter V8. Despite its unapologetic sport-coupe profile, we liked that it offered decent cargo space. We also enjoyed the power and crisp definition of its very nice audio system.
But it felt heavy and the weight blunted its handling performance to some drivers. The body and chassis struggled to keep up with 467 horsepower deployed from the engine compartment. The RC F's interior and exterior style were polarizing. We either liked it or we didn't; there wasn't much in-between. And at $78,000, it was just plain expensive.
This was a shorter test than usual, just six months, and we've wrapped up our time with the RC F. You can read some select thoughts from our time with Lexus's M4 fighter here.
