The 2015 Lexus RC 350 F Sport is a powerful grand tourer. The F Sport package includes dark gray trim, a unique grille design, 19-inch wheels, and an optional rear spoiler. The RC’s upscale interior is a blend of comfort and sophistication, akin to a pair of good jeans that hasn’t been hemmed for years.
The RC350 is one of the best handling cars in the Lexus lineup, thanks to adaptive variable suspension, rear-wheel steering assist, and torque vectoring. It is also the fastest in a straight line, thanks to the V-8 engine. But what makes it even more impressive is its ride quality.
The RC350 F Sport Supercharger can add more horsepower and torque to the car, making it more potent than the standard RC350. The standard model of this luxury sports car achieves 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. But the RC350’s powertrain is not without flaws. For instance, the RC350 has a surprisingly low torque rating for a V-6. This can make it difficult to use it on the highway.
The RC 350 is available in both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. It is based on a modified platform, which combines parts from the current generation IS convertible and the midsize GS sport sedan. The RC 350 F Sport Supercharger is the most powerful model of the RC 350 and adds more than 310 horsepower to the car.
The cabin of the 2015 Lexus RC 350 F Sport Supercharger is filled with plenty of high-quality materials. The upper dashboard, center console, and armrests are all made of premium materials. The front seats are supportive and supple, although larger frame drivers may feel cramped in the F Sport’s seats. Legroom is limited in the back, so the back seats are better left for cargo.
The F Sport package adds sport-tuned suspension and 19-inch wheels, as well as adaptive dampers. It also comes with a heated steering wheel and variable-gear-ratio steering. It costs about $4,600 on rear-drive models and $5,600 on all-wheel-drive models.
The 2015 Lexus RC 350 is a stylish, luxurious luxury coupe. Its 3.5-liter V6 engine delivers 306 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. It is available with a six or eight-speed automatic transmission. A rear-drive RC 350 F Sport can reach 60 mph in 5.9 seconds, just ten tenths behind a similarly equipped C350. Meanwhile, a six-cylinder BMW 435i accelerates in just 5.4 seconds.
Its modern, multi-tiered cockpit offers a sophisticated look that is both comfortable and stylish. The climate and audio controls are angled for easy access. The rear seatbacks can be split 60/40 for additional storage space. If you have a large trunk, you can easily fit two adults in.
