The Lexus RC F gets a mixed review from automotive journalist Chris Harris:
Look, [the RC F is] just a very pleasant place to be. It ain’t no M4, but then it’ll be sold in tiny numbers, is arguably a much more appealing object, and for those who couldn’t care less about long powerslides, lap times and beating M235is at the lights, I think it might prove to be a great car. There’s also a suspicion that it would reveal further layers of character over time, in the way an M4 might not.
BMW can rest easy, and Lexus has probably arrived at a 2014 party in 2008 clothes, but the RC F still has something about it. And it’s not German, which for some people will be enough on its own.
