Road & Track have reviewed the Lexus RC F, praising the coupe for its uniqueness:
Instead of trying to beat the Bavarians around a racetrack, Lexus has gone its own way with a playful alternate to the über-sports-coupe blueprint. Forget “clinical” and “precise.” This new flagship thumbs its nose at the BMW M4, then pokes the Audi RS5 in the eye and runs away. Giggling.
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.
