For the first time ever, the performance F coupe will be seen at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Spectators will have the chance to hear the growl of the 2015 Lexus RC F, and also watch the vehicle make the climb up the hill.

The RC F will launch at the end of the year, and it will have the most powerful V8 engine that Lexus has ever made. It also uses a lot of lightweight materials, as well as "the world-first use of a torque vectoring differential in a front engine/rear-wheel drive configuration."

So stay tuned to see how the Lexus RC F performs climbing the hill. Hopefully it stacks up to its competition.

I am just excited to see how well the RC F does climbing the hill there. This is always a great event each year, and I think they keep bringing more and more exciting cars.

Seems like the NSX concept will forever remain just a concept. :laugh:

Lexus has been putting a lot of effort into making sure the Lexus RC F performs well in time trials and such, so it'll be good to see it compete against some of its rivals.

It will and we can be sure that it will be tested by many publications, hopefully Lexus does what's good for them and have some test drive event for the media at some race track and then give them some closed off streets for more of a real world every day experience.

It will be exciting once we get some first drive reviews coming in. I am not that worried though, I think that reviewers will have almost all good things to say about the Lexus RC F. I mean Lexus is a great quality brand and it really seems like they have put a lot into this car. Can't wait to see it climb the hill.
