Some people might think that the Lexus RC-F was built off of a fully developed RC with some modifications done enough to a point to give them the right to call it a performance model....nope. Both the RC and RC-F were develop simultaneously. Add that to your reasons to love Lexus.
Source: CARandDRIVERYaguchi tells us that rather than Lexus developing the standard model first and then modifying it to meet performance targets, that the RC and the RC F were developed simultaneously. Each car had its own dedicated development team, but the standard group was given design and construction conditions so as to allow for the F model.
Lexus tells us that a carbon-fiber package will be available, which will include a roof and spoiler made from the lightweight weave, and in certain countries that aren’t abbreviated “U.S.,” a carbon-fiber hood.
