The Car Guide rating 79%(view ratings)
The RC coupe is essentially a sportier and more athletic two-door variant of the IS sedan. Between the two all-wheel drive models and the high-performance RC F with rear-wheel drive, output ranges from 260 to 472 horsepower. The latter is the main focus for 2020 as it benefits from improved aerodynamics, reduced weight, a recalibrated suspension, refreshed looks and an all-new, limited-production Track Edition aimed at the most hardcore enthusiasts.
