Not bad at all, loving the specs here. 278 lb·ft at 4,800 RPM is great. Now just imagine if they add turbo's to it. This might be a great engine for sequential turbos.

It'll be interesting what they do for the RC-F

Would be lame if they just dropped the IS-F engine in it.
And if they did. They better give it with a DCT.

I think to make the RC350 sportier than the IS350 they will have to drop some weight.

Hopefully bring the car to around 3000lbs.

I'd be surprised if they get the RC350 down to 3000lbs while keeping it in line with the competition price wise. I suppose it's possible. My FRS is ~2700lbs. The RC350 will get the IS F 8 speed auto, which is Porsche PDK fast already. I recently had a very enjoyable test drive in a '11 IS F, and didn't miss the 3rd pedal as much as I thought I would using the flappy paddles.

I'm having my doubts, it's more likely the V8 RC-F will be able to do this. Toyota is good with making lighter engines and there was info floating around of them using a lot of CF in the RC-F.

so the RC350 will probably have a bit more power than the IS350

wonder how they will achieve it.
