Road and Track has published a First Drive review of the 2015 Lexus RC F. I'll leave you guys the link at the bottom so you can read it for yourself.

The main idea of the review is probably summed up in this quote:

That's okay, really, because the RC F isn't trying to be some thoroughbred dual-purpose street-circuit machine. It's less nuanced than an M4 or RS5. Wring it out, and you'll find a lower ceiling for outright ten-tenths pace, too, but that makes the RC F approachable. It's blunt and forgiving and, most important, uniquely lighthearted. Coming from a somber customer like Lexus, that's doubly entertaining. Sometimes, you don't want German motorsports gravitas. You just want a big, fast, flying elephant.
Here is a link to the article and below are some of the nice pictures.

"horrible" seems a bit severe as a descriptor, but I see what you mean about the hue or filter that they have used. Lighting is always going to make a difference in the tone and colors of a picture though. Its just a choice of style. I guess for you pictures should aim to capture something exactly as it is in real life, not elevate it to a more artistic realm.

it's just what i prefer, rather see things as more in it's 'natural' state than to be altered like this to a point where what it's about can't be truly appreciated. I think how these photo's were edited actually takes away from how great the red looks in normal photos and in person.
