Lexus will target the current BMW M4 with its new RC F Coupe, ready to reach its first clients next year. To battle with one of the most popular medium segment coupes, the Lexus RC F Coupe will use a completely new V8 engine, developed by Lexus.
 
Engine
 
The unit delivers 54 hp more than the old Lexus IS-F, reaching 471 hp between 6800 and 7300 rpm. The unit will also deliver 530 Nm, available from 4,800 to 5,600 rpm.
 
With this amount of power, the maximum speed is electronically governed at 168 mph (270 km/h); the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint can be reached in 4.5 seconds, and a 400 m sprint from standstill takes 12.5 seconds.
 
Uniquely for a Lexus performance engine, the V8 switches to the more fuel-efficient Atkinson cycle when operating at cruising speeds, reverting to the Otto cycle for higher performance driving.
 
Engine Sound 
 
The exhaust system features large-diameter front pipes, which minimise back pressure and ensure high power output. Making the merged areas of the pipes larger produces a clearer engine sound, while the design of the main silencer keeps noise down at low engine speed, with a dynamic increase at mid-to-high revs.
 
More than that, Lexus also delivers an Active Sound Control system which delivers enhanced exhaust, intake and mechanical sounds into the cabin.
 
Price 
 
The RC F is available to order now, priced from £59,995. First customer deliveries will be in February.
