Lexus RC Coupe
Lexus is doing its best to fight back against the Germans with its new RC Coupe. Packing a 3.5L V6, the RC Coupe delivers 306-hp to the rear wheels or all four wheels should you choose it. The exterior is possibly the most aggressively styled car on the market although there are many out there who think the aggressive styling was taken a bit too far. Inside the RC gets Lexus’s new touchpad controlled infotainment system and a digital dash that changes colors depending on whether you are in sport, comfort, or eco modes. The Lexus RC Coupe competes against the Audi A5, Cadillac ATS Coupe, and Infiniti Q60.

Lexus RC-F Coupe
The Lexus RC-F is a love it or hate it type of vehicle. With its massive grill, flared wheel arches, and stacked quad exhaust tips the RC-F will certainly grab your attention. Despite what you may think of its looks the RC-F has many features which would make you want to climb behind the wheel- firstly being that potent 5.0L V8. That big V8 produces 467-hp, beating out the BMW M4 Coupe in power but then falling short by having less torque. However with a 7,300-rpm redline and throaty exhaust the RC-F Coupe has the tools to outdo the M4 in the vocal department for sure.
Ensuring you can safely put that power to the ground is a race-derived torque vectoring differential distributing power between the right and left rear wheels maximizing stability or responsiveness depending on what mode you are in. In the standard driving mode the power is distributed to keep the car stable and in line. The intermediate “Slalom Mode” gives the vehicle a sportier feel and finally “Track Mode” is meant to optimize the power distribution for the best performance when on a high-speed circuit or curvy mountain road. If you meet an M4 on the road or track however you may want to move over because besides horsepower there’s another figure the RC-F beats the M4 on- weight. The Lexus RC-F Coupe weighs a not-so-impressive 400lbs more than its BMW counterpart spoiling performance off the line and unfortunately also in the corners.
When you sit behind the wheel of the RC-F Coupe the first thing you will notice is the impressive digital display cluster. Borrowed from the Lexus LFA supercar, the digital gauge gives the feel of an expensive supercar while still providing you with the information you need in an easy to read package. The rest of the interior falls in line as well with a mixture of leather, metal, and impressive control surfaces. A new-generation easy to use touchpad replaces the previous mouse-like system that many people found fault with. The Lexus RC-F Coupe competes against the Cadillac ATS-V Coupe, Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe, and BMW M4 Coupe.

Engine: 5.0L V8
Horsepower: 467
