In an age where almost everyone else has switched to forced induction, Lexus
has opted to install a naturally-aspirated V8 in its new
RC F sports car. Chris Harris drives it and tells his verdict.
The F performance model, based on the RC coupe, gets its powerful roar from more than 450 horsepower and more than 383 lb-ft torque. As Harris finds out in the video above, the car is hampered by its 3958 lb (1795 kg) kerb weight. For comparison, it weights 650 lb (300 kg) more than a 2015 BMW M4 Coupe.
