Travis Okulski of Jalopnik has reviewed the Lexus RC F, and it’s just full of that signature Jalopnik personality:
Is the RC F better than a BMW M3? I haven’t driven the M3 yet, but I find it hard to think that the RC F would be better. But is that the point? Everyone in this class needs their unique calling card. The Lexus is more blunt instrument than precision tool.
You can’t treat the RC F like it’s a serious track day weapon. With that big snout, carbon roof, and exaggerated design features, it obviously has a sense of humor, which is something Lexus has never really had. And if you can’t have fun in the RC F, then you really don’t know what humor is. That makes the RC F easily the best Lexus I’ve ever driven.
