Lexus RC

Price $53,950 – $87,550
Fuel consumption 9.0 – 14.4 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 67%(view ratings)
The RC coupe is part of the luxury sports car segment, but unlike most Lexus models it doesn’t offer a hybrid variant. The 3.5-litre V6 engine under the hood produces 260 or 311 horsepower depending on the configuration. In order to challenge Germany’s finest such as the BMW M4, Lexus also has the RC F with a 5.0-litre V8 delivering 472 horsepower and a stiffer suspension that contributes to superior handling.
