this has got to be a subtle bit of marketing we've now seen 3 different shades of F-Sport running around pre release...

If it is, it's a cool way to go about this.
Clearly they're showing they have nothing to hide from us, plus it's a good sign the RC-F is in it's final stages, well past development.

Now I just wished they applied some tire shine on those tires, they look DRY.

I'm a big fan of the taillights, and I like the way that they use the Lexus 'L' shape.

Who are these lucky guys who get to ride around in an RC-F before anyone else gets their hands on them? Do they work for Lexus, are they auto journalists?

I could see how this is subtle marketing. If they were still trying to keep things secret they wouldn't have the RC-F driving around with absolutely no camouflage on so casually.

It could just be people from lexus, engineers that drive around the pre-production models to find out any issues, some do this for thousands of miles with multiple vehicles.

can't wait to see the track comparos of the RC vs the ISF
that will be interesting, RC seems like it's heavier and could be a bit of a boat while the IS-F is lighter and packs more power. I think the IS-F will beat it just off of weight to power ratio

Carbon fiber trim for the RC F will be the lightest of them all. That's the model that I want to see racing on the track.
I agree, all they need to do it paint that carbon hood matching the rest of the body and while they are at might as well make carbon doors and trunk.

I haven't really driven a carbon fiber intensive vehicle before. I wish that I could drive a carbon fiber model and then a non-carbon fiber model to see how much of a difference I can tell. Does anyone have experience with this. Can you tell a big difference?
