Known for their supremely elegant saloons and their brutish SUVs, Lexus have also ventured into the sports coupe, with the RC F. This muscle car has astonishing road presence, and is certainly a match for any Mercedes or BMW that cares to challenge it. Lexus has a rather nice habit of popping naturally-aspirated V8 engines in their cars, and in the RC F (which is much lighter than the usual Lexus saloons), it responds with gusto. The 5.0-litre engine is more than enough to get you up to 60mph in a monstrously quick 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of around 168mph. This is a car that doesn’t hang around.
Where Lexus have really excelled with the RC F, though, is by improving the handling. Stiffer suspension and a more rigid chassis means that not only is it blisteringly quick in a straight line, but it handles corners with refined ease, too. However, that sports suspension has not impacted negatively on the ride comfort, which is classically refined and, as you’d expect with a Lexus, surprisingly quiet. All of this makes it as happy on a long motorway trip as when it’s nipping through the workday traffic – and turning heads as it goes. The styling is sleek, understated, and with lots of extras in its luxurious cabin, as well as plenty of legroom.
