Video: The Sound of the Lexus RC F

Lexus RC F Car Advice

Alborz Fallah of Car Advice has a video review of the Lexus RC F, and it has the best representation of the super-coupe’s sound I’ve heard so far:

Fallah also has a written review:

Behind the wheel the Lexus RC F is a true performance car; it feels just as a vehicle of its calibre should. The steering is super direct, power is always on tap and its exhaust note is orchestral at worst.

In comparison with its rivals, it lacks the extreme dynamics of the M4 (no doubt a consequence of its hefty 1780-1860kg kerb weight), the brutality or fun-factor of the outgoing C63 AMG and the hard-edged nature of the Audi RS5. It does things the Lexus way, which is required to have its own unique character, and however competent it may be, we couldn’t pinpoint any one thing that it did better than any of its rivals.

The C63 cant even beat the ISF and they keep talking about it like it can do $&@#, that car can' turn in corners. It very easy to say lexus fail, what about Merc and Audi lol they been throwing it at the M3 for dacades and failing. perfomance wise lexus has supassed Audi and Merc. Mark my words RCF lap times will match the M3

    Buddy, I spoke to my salesman two weeks ago and he said once the car gets there I will be the first person he calls.

My former comments about the exhaust sound stand. However...the engine and intake sound from within the cabin is phenomenal! Actually...musical! Everything about the drivetrain is razor sharp. Anyone criticizing this vehicle because it doesn't have a dual clutch transmission just doesn't have the ability to make an educated judgment for themselves, and just regurgitate what they've heard or read. This drivetrain is an absolute gem! You have to experience it to appreciate it! (and yes, I drove the BMW M4 too)
