Change lateral acceleration from .92 g to .95 g. Here's my source https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/a15109103/2015-lexus-rc-f-tested-review/
I figured .92 was too low so i looked around and this was the best skidpad test for a non carbon package rc f i could find

Their quarter mile was also 12.8 which is .1 second slower than the 12.7 seconds that motor trend test got but caranddriver got a faster trap speed at 114mph

It is technically not a sedan, though it's heavier than the 2008-'14 IS F it's based on.

...FBO?..

From a roll it loses badly to my FBO E93 .
Was suprised myself .

He was with a passenger thtats why he was so slow.

Just the driver the cars are even.

MarkD  2w ago

No way in hell your E93 can hang with an RCF. I have raced E92 M3 from all rolling speeds and it gets destroyed badly by me. E93 is 400 lbs heavier (heavier than the RCF) and also has less power so no way unless he is a terrible driver.


User avatar

MarkD  2w ago @MarkD

400 lbs heavier than the E92 M3, that is. About 100 lbs heavier than the RCF and has 53 HP less with 100 ft-lbs of torque less.

PPZ  2w ago @MarkD

He said FBO E93


User avatar

FastestLaps  2w ago @PPZ

FBO probably means 335i E93, in which case it would get spanked by RCF. Unless it is modded (which is not expensive to do).

RCF would beat M3 E93 also.


User avatar

PPZ  2w ago @FastestLaps

Modding a 335i is cheap.
With only $1500 in mods you get around 500 reliable horsepower out of the N54.


User avatar

aaayy  2w ago @PPZ

I've never heard "335i" and "Reliable" in the same sentence.

The Lexus RC F accelerates like a bat out of hell--the engine is powerful.

With the right set up, it competes head to head with the best on a track. Whether on the road or track, it's a thrill to drive.

Esquire Magazine chose wisely making it the 2015 Biggest Thrill Ride of the Year.

Wow that's a great 0-60 time, I was hoping we would see a test break into the 3s, Couple things I noticed, how is it that they got 3540lbs on the GT 5.0 when everyone's else Is getting 37-3800lbs? And man that Viper, an old Skool manual and still the awesomest car there.

Yet Toyota are doing great in terms of sales and business in general.


User avatar

Shaggy  5y ago

I think this is another step in the right direction for Lexus. Lexus and Toyota suffer from an image problem. People don't see them as exciting cars.

The shape is great so i suspect it will be better to look at from all angles in real life. And i hope it has 500hp.


User avatar

BR2+  6y ago

I think id still rather have Dysentery..

The shape is wonderful, I wont deny that, But wether people said they were boring or not, Is no excuse for making an ugly car, I know everything about a car is subjective, but still, But at least its rivals have the looks, M4/5.0/C7/C4S/ all those cars are nice to look at and will most likely cream this thing in every performance category. Still, Im glad they have a N/A 5.9 V8 and not some 3.2L TT V6, God i am so sick of this downsizing bullshite (However i am glad they bought the I6 for the 3 back(Id rather it be N/a like Bmw M/// Use to be..)

I like it, the design is supposed to stand out from the crowd, keep in mind that people criticized Lexus for boring designs, they are only responding to them ( the lambo way)

And we all agree about the NA engine


User avatar

Flabernat  6y ago

@Apathy, we probably don't agree on the RC F's styling... ;) but I definitely agree with you on the powerplant. DI turbo motors are cool, and have their place. But I love the fact that Lexus stuck with a N/A V8 motor!


User avatar

Apathy  6y ago

I don't like the way it looks in pictures at all.

In person, I'm still not completely sold on it. The front just stands out too much. It says "LOOK AT ME!!!" You can say the same about other sporty coupes, but the Lexus does it in spades by looking overly bold and somewhat unpleasant (IMO)

It doesn't look very pretty to me at all. It's just flashy (again, IMO).

I will say this though, I'm glad Lexus stuck with the 5.0l V8. The competitor DI turbo cars might have more torque, but there's something cool and visceral about a V8.


User avatar

Flabernat  6y ago

I like it. I think that grill works. I didn't at first, but once I saw it in person it makes more sense...
I hope to see it against the M3 C63AMG(and maybe the ATS-V) in a proper Fifth Gear-style dogfight! :)


User avatar

BR2+  6y ago

Ewww, Still butt arse ugly. Ill take an M4 or 5.0 at that price range, Better yet give me a Stingray. Honestly, You have to wonder about the design team of Lexus, These curves and flows on there new cars are just god awful, They dont have the same elegence as they once had. That front end grille is like a huge Audi that was in a accident, The hood bulge is way to big, Those lights are too small and out of place, Specially with those unconnected ones underneath, And those rear tail lights JUST stick out, And dont curve or go with the body.

The interior takes cues from the LFA, I was extremely excited bout the RC class, Full on coupe with potential. But they have ruined it for me.


User avatar

Shaggy  6y ago

I would so buy this car when it comes out if I had the money. It's kind of like an ISF with more power and 2 less doors.


User avatar

196ss  6y ago

460hp and 380lb-ft was claimed by Car and Driver in the link I mentioned below. All other sources says just "more then 450hp". But if this car would receive more power when came to production, it would be nice.
Lexus also would make a GT3 racecar based on this coupe with 540 hp.


User avatar

lafars  6y ago

""More than 450 horsepower" - or 335kW - is the inkling as to the new car’s performance. But even that number is due to change, with engineers still working on enhancements tipped to add another 10 or 15kW."

Awesome, and it has 460 horsepower. I love it!
