Inside the RC F - The Highlights

THE HIGHLIGHTS

Relax and feel confident around high-speed corners in the RC F’s beautifully crafted high-back sports seats. Inspired by the latest high-end sportswear, they are manufactured using an integrated foaming technique for a highly supportive fit. The RC F’s instruments represent a further development of the LFA’s unique central dial - information shown includes a large tachometer, digital and analogue speed readouts, a differential torque vectoring monitor, a G-Force meter and even a stopwatch. Soft-touch materials, a precision analogue timepiece and LED ambient lighting complete the impressive interior.

19" forged alloy wheels

19” FORGED ALLOY WHEELS

The RC F’s wheels are forged (rather than cast) in a process that emulates the blows of a blacksmith’s hammer to combine strength through an improved metallic structure, with lightness. They were developed in association with BBS, the Formula One supplier, and manufactured in one of the world’s most advanced motorsport wheel production facilities.

Leather Sports Seats

LEATHER SPORTS SEATS

High-back seats feature Lexus’ integrated foaming technique, which achieves a cosseting, highly supportive fit. This motorsport-inspired technology allows greater comfort and lateral support than is possible with conventional upholstery methods. Seat cushion shape and firmness have been optimised to reduce pressure on the sensitive ischial region.

Blind Spot Monitor

BLIND SPOT MONITOR

Radar devices mounted in the rear bumper detect vehicles in adjacent lanes that are not visible in the door mirrors. If the driver is indicating to change lane and a vehicle enters the blind spot, Blind Spot Monitor instantly activates a warning signal in the relevant door mirror.

8 Speed Sport Direct Shift

8 SPEED SPORT 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. Select Manual mode and use shift paddles to enjoy rapid sports performance. When paddle downshifting (in just 0.2 seconds) you’ll experience the unique sound of the throttle ‘blipping’ between gears.

Lexus Premium Navigation

LEXUS PREMIUM NAVIGATION

With vivid 3D graphics and many mapping options, the 7-inch screen is operated by Touch Pad or voice commands. The system can even generate a QR code for your smartphone, to help you reach your final destination on foot.

LED Headlights

LED HEADLIGHTS

Jewel-like, triple ‘L’ LED headlights use the same light source for high and low beam, with the RC F’s impressive aura enhanced by L-shaped thick-wall full LED daytime running lights.

Carbon Package

CARBON PACKAGE

Benefiting from carbon fibre moulding technology developed for our Lexus LFA supercar and IS F CCS-R racecar, the RC F ‘carbon pack’ model is 9.5 kilos lighter than the standard car. Carbon fibre elements include the roof, bonnet and active rear wing. Woven carbon fibre components achieve an attractive visual form, while an exclusive clear lacquer ensures excellent weather resistance. As well as reducing overall weight, the carbon package also lowers the RC F’s overall centre-of-gravity by 3 mm. This contributes to the enhanced dynamic performance achieved through a reduced roll inertia moment.

Lexus 'Takumi' Craftmanship

LEXUS 'TAKUMI' CRAFTSMANSHIP

The RC F is built at our award-winning Tahara plant by Lexus ‘Takumi’ craftsmen. With at least 25 years of experience, each is an expert at detecting the tiniest imperfections. You’ll sense their amazing skill when you first touch the precision-machined aluminium audio controls or beautifully stitched leatherwork. Gleaming paintwork is painstakingly wet sanded by hand to ensure a perfect finish. Before a final test drive, the ‘Takumi’ check each car for smooth running in a ‘quiet room’ using their highly trained ears and a sensitive microphone placed strategically in the cabin.

Passenger safety cell, 8 airbags

PASSENGER SAFETY CELL, 8 AIRBAGS

RC F occupant safety is provided by eight airbags. The driver and front passenger are protected by 2-stage head airbags, as well as knee and side airbags. Curtain shield airbags run the full length of both cabin sides. All seatbelts are also specified with pre-tensioners.

Drive Mode Select

DRIVE MODE SELECT

Vehicle performance can be fine-tuned using Drive Mode Select. ECO mode reduces emissions and conserves fuel while, for everyday driving, NORMAL provides an ideal balance of power, economy and ride comfort. For enhanced drivetrain responsiveness, simply switch to SPORT or SPORT+ mode.

LFA-like instruments

LFA-LIKE INSTRUMENTS

The RC F’s instrument meters represent a further development of the LFA’s switchable, driving mode-dependent central dial. Information includes a large, centrally-mounted tachometer that alters according to driving mode. There are also digital and analogue speed readouts, a differential torque vectoring monitor, a G-Force meter, oil and water temperature gauges, mileage information and even a stopwatch.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT

When reversing, for instance in a busy car park, the Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) function uses the BSM radar to detect vehicles approaching the difficult-to-see area behind the vehicle. When a vehicle is detected, the RCTA function alerts you with a visual display in the door mirrors and a buzzer.

Driver Focused Cockpit

DRIVER FOCUSED COCKPIT

The RC F’s driver-focused cockpit will keep you perfectly relaxed and concentrated on the road or track ahead. Behind the beautifully crafted steering wheel the sumptuous front seats offer up to 8-way electric adjustments.

Mark Levinson® Premium Audio

MARK LEVINSON® PREMIUM AUDIO

The RC F’s 17-speaker, 835 Watt Mark Levinson® Premium Surround system is tailored to the acoustic properties of the cabin. It delivers a peerless 7.1-channel digital home-theatre experience enhanced by Clari-Fi™ that rebuilds sound lost in MP3 digital compression.

Hand-Built V8 Power

HAND-BUILT V8 POWER

Hand built and tuned by stethoscope in our Tahara plant, this incredible 5.0-litre V8 engine develops 477 DIN hp and more than 520 Nm of torque. The cylinder head and all moving parts are designed to provide increased maximum power at higher engine revs. Thrilling to the ear, advanced sound engineering technology creates a deeply resonant tone up to 3000 rpm, and a pleasing, higher-pitched note as revolutions rise above 6000 rpm under hard acceleration. Importantly, for the first time in a Lexus performance engine, the RC F uses the Atkinson cycle at cruising speeds for enhanced fuel economy.

Parking Assist Monitor

PARKING ASSIST MONITOR

Engage reverse and the view behind the car is relayed to the Lexus Media Display. Onscreen guides are also displayed to assist parking.

Touch Pad Control

TOUCH PAD CONTROL

Touch Pad with Remote Touch Interface lets front seat occupants interact intuitively with the central 7-inch multimedia display. Ergonomically designed, it is as easy to use as a smartphone or tablet.

Motorsport Engineering

MOTORSPORT ENGINEERING

Driven at the gruelling 24-hours of Nürburgring and Pikes Peak Hill Climb in Colorado, this hand-built 5.0-litre V8 engine resets benchmarks for sports performance. Developing 470 DIN hp and more than 520 Nm of torque, the cylinder head and other moving parts are engineered by Yamaha Motorsport (who supplied the LFA’s V10 engines), while assembly and tuning take place at our Tahara plant. Delivering a low tone up to 3000 rpm and a higher-pitched roar above 6000 rpm, the RC F uses the Atkinson cycle for increased efficiency at cruising speeds.

Suspension and Chassis

SUSPENSION AND CHASSIS

Developed and tuned by the Lexus ‘Master Drivers’ – who perfected our LFA supercar – the RC F offers an unforgettable drive. Supreme cornering agility comes from the car’s short wheelbase and extremely rigid chassis, built using the latest adhesive and laser screw-welding technology. Multilink rear and double wishbone front suspension combine with motorsport aerodynamics to deliver a world-class driving experience. Drive Mode Select and a Torque Vectoring Differential let you tune the RC F to suit your mood, while our latest Sports VDIM ensures high-speed driving refinement and safety.

For an even more dynamic drive, Adaptive Variable Suspension – now standard on the RC F – intelligently controls the damping force on all four wheels. This not only improves ride comfort, but also increases handling stability – especially during higher-speed cornering.

Sports VDIM

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. This adjusts throttle, steering and suspension settings to provide sportier performance, and expands the permissible range of centrifugal force before the VDIM system intervenes. If you’re ready to push the RC F to the extreme of its dynamic capabilities, you can switch Sports VDIM off completely.

Torque Vectoring Differential

TORQUE VECTORING DIFFERENTIAL

Designed to further heighten driving enjoyment, the RC F features a Torque Vectoring Differential (TVD) with three operating modes: STANDARD, for a balance of agile performance and high-speed stability, SLALOM, for an emphasis on nimble response to steering inputs and TRACK, for consistent, stable cornering behaviour while circuit driving.
