It is interesting that 2017 Lexus RCF has been waiting for the new design and improvements two years from the last model, and it still has no many changes in term of equipment and engine performances as the rivals have. Those rivals are not a joke at all, including the highest wanted cars from the class, like BMW M4 (instead of the last model M3 coupe), Audi S5, Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG coupe and Cadillac ATS-V coupe. The same size and design as them have the Lexus, but with more elegance as Lexus always had and some additional equipment in the cabin, found only in this car model.
Being a two-door coupe, 2017 Lexus RCF cannot attract the buyers of the large and massive cars, but that is not its main needs. The long rounded front end has wide mesh air intake in the middle in recognizable trapezoidal shape; with triangle LED front lights on the sides and interesting shaped fog lights in shape of the letter L. Convex hood has a thin intake in the middle, so popular on sports cars. The side of the car is slightly curved, with a shallow line on the bottom of the doors and convex roof in black color, which ends with a protuberance in the short and rounded rear end. There are small extensions around the wheels, too.
Stitching in the small cabin is actually an expected in small coupes as 2017 Lexus RCF is, so do not expect wide and comfort cabin as on sedans. However, that is not its main features, having the rich infotainment system and many innovative devices and additions for the drivers. One of them, found only in this car model is a smartphone application which leads the driver to the place he wants, instead of the navigation system, for example. However, there are other options, like forwarding collision warning system with automatic brakes or automatic climate control, Bluetooth, USB input and many other things.
The standard engine in 2017 Lexus RCF is 5.0-liter V8 petrol engine with 467 horsepower. This amazing machine increases the speed to 60 mph for 4.4 seconds and reaches the top speed of 170 mph. many tests have shown the numbers of 19 mpg combined fuel economy, conducted from 16 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. But, numbers are not all, especially if we know that test drivers said that driving of this car is a comfort, stable and in the well settled seat which allows high visibility during the driving.
2017 Lexus RCF Sport Price
According to the car connection, we should expect the price around the $60,000, which is, again, the average in the class, so 2017 Lexus RCF should be prepared for numerous of buyers next year.
