Lexus wants to sell more sporty cars in the US, so it launched a series of updates for the RC F model, available from 2021.
New is the inclusion of standard Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, heated electrochromic exterior mirrors, and a memory driver’s seat (excluding Fuji Speedway Edition). In addition, Intuitive Parking Assist is included to the available Premium Package. Other interior enhancements include a revised satin trim and steering horn pad design.
Android Auto compatibility is now included on the standard multimedia which already features Amazon Alexa integration, Apple CarPlay compatibility, Lexus Enform Wi-Fi (four gigabyte/one-year trial is included), and Lexus Enform Remote (three-year trial is included).
Lexus engineers worked with the RC F GT3 racing team to create a unique aerodynamics strategy that increases downforce for better grip and control through every turn. Even the airflow inside the wheel wells was carefully calculated. Air exits through the fenders, allowing the suspension to perform without disruptive air pressure, simultaneously enhancing handling and stability. And taking traction to the next level, each tread line on the RC F’s Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tires features a specially developed compound to maximize grip.
From its muscular stance and available Premium Triple-Beam LED headlamps and taillamps, to its driver-inspired cabin including aggressively styled high-back sport seats, the RC F is the ultimate F, inside and out – on and off the track.
RC F is celebrated for having the best power-to-weight ratio offered in its class, the most powerful V8-powered Lexus to date is rated at 472 horsepower at 7,100 rpm and 395 pound-feet of torque at 4,800 rpm.
