Jack Baruth of Road & Track: The Lexus RC F is “Simply Brilliant”

Jack Baruth of Road & Track has written an extensive piece on his new-found love of the Lexus RC F — this is some perfect long weekend reading:

I’m glad the RC F and I got a second chance. This time, the romance is definitely on. It’s not quite as hardcore as the German competition, but the Trans Am was never quite a match for the IROC-Z around a racetrack, and I didn’t care about that either. The Lexus is very good on a track and simply brilliant away from it. Call it the finest Japanese ponycar in history, and one that deserves a second look from you as well.
