Test Drive: 2015 Lexus RC F

An Autos.ca editor got behind the wheel of an RC-F just recently, see the full review here: Test Drive: 2015 Lexus RC F - Autos.ca

Itís not that the RC F is some sort of wildly powerful monster Ė well, not in a way thatís not controllable at least. Itís not even that the RC F has tail-happy rear-wheel-drive dynamics that make oversteer a constant, cheerful companion. Nor is it the bizarrely short gearing/final drive ratio (one of the two) that makes the back wheel spin with just a gentle feed of throttle while you hold it on the brake. (Seriously, donít try to preload revs while waiting to launch Ė it just lights up the tail). Itís not the engine note either. You have to rev the thing to its 7,500 rpm redline before you even hear it in the tomb-like cabin, but once it infiltrates, the sound is intoxicating.
