    The RC F lapped a 1:43.20, while this LC with the Performance package lapped a 1:43.40. This shows that while the LC is slower than the RC F on a straight line, it makes up for it in the corners with its better chassis. Another thing is that the RC F's transmission was shifting funny on the day of the race, that slowed it down. Otherwise, the LC is an amazing coupe that can satisfy its owner's track and driving needs.

    Yeah. That day, it wasn't shifting right at the 2015 Best Driver's Car. Sometimes it gives Randy a gear, and sometimes it doesn't. It slowed the RC F down by a considerable amount, combined with its portly weight. Many people still called one of the best HPO automatics in the business.

    The RC F still placed 8th out of 12 that year. Motor Trend plans to put the Lexus LC in the competition this September.
