5 Stars from the Sunday Times

Good news...

First Drive review: Lexus RC F (2014) | Driving.co.uk

Quote:

THE NEW Lexus RC F is expensive, cumbersome, blazingly immodest, fundamentally impractical, comes fitted with an unnecessarily large and uneconomical engine and is altogether, in a naggingly high number of ways, boilingly inappropriate. I canít think of many cars this year that Iíve enjoyed driving quite as much.

meh, this was an OKAY review, doesn't provide as much value as others i have seen posted here, their verdict is a good example of lack of value:

We like Head-turning looks and superb cornering
We don’t like It’s a bit of a squeeze in the back

Of course it's a squeeze in the back, this is not a Lexus IS...

Who buys a coupe expecting to get the same seating as a sedan? If you want more legroom in the back buy the IS as mentioned. As for me, I want the fun of a coupe knowing I will not have to haul all my friends or coworkers around.

Ah, got to love how they're telling us what is already obvious, even to those that just take the RC for face value. Another reason why I just stick to a select amount of automotive publications.

Is there no cure for your myopia?

Then again the boot (opened by a remote control that causes it to pop and, rather pleasingly, pause in thought for a couple of seconds before rising slowly) is only marginally smaller than Northampton. Purists will tell you that the boot is where the engine ought to be, and they may have a point. At the same time, last-minute Christmas shopping? Done.
Quote:
I also noted with a pang of jealously that the upscale £67,995 Carbon-spec version of the RC F features a 17-speaker Mark Levinson setup and includes a device that high-mindedly restores the frequencies compressed by digital MP3 formatting. Roll on the day when Lexus takes this hi-fi snobbery all the way and plugs in a high-end, belt-driven, diamond-stylus turntable.
Quote:
But I feel eager to report that the RC F can play host to legal pleasures too, and that for this driver Christmas came early in a moment of yowling and perfectly law-abiding (as well as utterly comfortable) acceleration on the A3 near Cobham, in Surrey. And it doesn’t get much more Lexus than that.
Luckily, its not for you...they're speaking to a crowd who neither knows nor cares who Chris Harris is...
