The 467-horsepower, 5.0-liter V8 in the RC F is unmatched among its peers. It is the largest engine in its class, and it’s the only naturally aspirated one among them too. This is all the more impressive when you consider that its Atkinson-cycle capability is also engineered to deliver efficiency. Among its innovative components are lightweight titanium valves that are paired with high-strength, forged connecting rods. And it emits a throaty, specially tuned engine sound throughout its impressive 7,300-rpm range.
Capturing the purity of a true racing coupe, the aggressive stance of the wide, low RC F is punctuated by the iconic Lexus spindle grille that extends low into the front fascia. And adding even more performance, the grille and lower front bumper contain cooling ducts to help achieve optimum fluid cooling, brake cooling and aerodynamics.

Featuring high-friction pads as well as a fast-cooling slotted rotor design for reduced brake fade, the RC F makes stopping almost as exciting as going. Almost.

This system utilizes a high-resolution camera to monitor visible lane markings and determine the vehicle's position within a lane. If an inadvertent lane departure, or potential departure due to swaying, is detected at speeds above 32 mph, the system attempts to alert the driver with audible and visual warnings and steering-wheel vibrations. If the driver doesn't respond, Steering Assist takes temporary corrective measures with a slight pull on the steering wheel.
This system is engineered to detect a vehicle or pedestrian in the path of your Lexus under certain conditions. Should the system detect a pedestrian or determine a frontal collision is imminent, it's designed to activate an audible and visual alert while automatically preparing Brake Assist for increased braking response. If the driver does not brake in time, the system is designed to automatically begin braking before impact and, in some cases, can even brake the vehicle to a stop.
