Lexus RC350 F Sport, this is a smooth operator but the 5.7 seconds timing may be disappointment for thrill seekers
The RC350 F Sport sure has bulging fender flares, menacing spindle like maw which seems to be inhaling pavement, and a Porsche 959-ish vents in the rear but don’t let the plumage deceive you for a moment because the new Lexus is one silky operator and more like the saintly successor of the SC300, the first luxury coupe from Lexus, though it is instilled with the exciting LF-LC concept of 2012.
If you confound the RC350 F Sport with the RC F, the evenly new Lexus then you will be excused because both wear the video game appearance projected by the Gran Turismo on the exterior and stunning inside trims. For an example the test car had Playa upholstery that could have come from a Maserati which hugely complements the Ultrasonic Blue Mica paint on the exterior. The cabin is 2+2 but you would certainly seat yourself in the all enveloping bucket seats in the front which is a better choice to observe the inspired instrumentation of LFA supercar, classic analog clock, aluminum pedals, and infotainment system with touch pad control. Every control which the finger touches is padded, user-friendly and soft. It is whisper quiet in the Lexus of course, as with other cars from the brand.
Both the F sport and the RC F has beefed up structure compared to the IS sedan and sport extra bracing, welds and structural adhesives making the vehicles to look solid like a garrison. The most they differ is under the hood and the RC F hides a 5.0 Liter V-8 with 467 horsepower, and the F Sport is powered by a 3.5 Liter V-6 from Toyota. The engine is as velvety as a Camry six-banger and offers 306hp.
You will be disappointed if you are seeking thrill behind the wheels of the F Sport as it is 3894 lbs heavy and has a timing of 5.7 seconds to show for the 0-60mph short sprint.
