8 Speed Direct Shift

The V8 engine delivers power via an 8 Speed Sport Direct Shift (SDS) sequential transmission with manual override. The transmission’s shift control has been enhanced to respond precisely to even the slightest dip or lift of the accelerator pedal.

Leather Sports Seats

High-back seats feature Lexus’ integrated foaming technique, which achieves a cosseting, highly supportive fit. Seat cushion shape and firmness have been optimised to reduce pressure on the sensitive ischial region. Available on selected grades.

Sports VDIM

Sports Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) ensures that the enormous power of the RC F can be enjoyed smoothly and safely, even when cornering at high speed.

Built by Lexus' 'Takumi' craftsmen at our award-winning Tahara plant, the new RC F is expertly designed to impress. The 'Takumi' craftsmen are experts at detecting the tiniest imperfections. Their amazing skill is clear when you touch the precision-machined aluminium audio controls for the first time or look at the beautifully stitched leatherwork gracing the RC F interior. 

The Lexus RC F's chief engineer Yukihiko Yaguchi comments that “the form of each component is carefully designed to contribute to performance. Unique air outlets in the bonnet and rear section of the front fenders contribute to optimum engine cooling and handling stability.They create an aggressive look that immediately conveys the expectation of a dynamic driving experience.

The Lexus RC F is one of the most amazing high performance sports cars ever developed. Boasting the most powerful Lexus V8 road car engine ever built, the RC F has been endurance tested at some of the world’s most renowned racetracks.

Under the bonnet, a hand-built, naturally aspirated 5 litre V8 engine delivers its awesome power to the rear wheels via a rapid 8-speed Sport Direct Shift automatic transmission.
