THE RC F IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPRESSIVE LEXUS CARS EVER RELEASED. HERE WE TAKE IT TO THE MOUNTAINS.

The new RC F, The latest model in the premium Lexus F range, has arrived and it’s setting the standard in high-performance vehicles.

Seven years ago Lexus unveiled the IS F, a fast, thrilling sports sedan that immediately resonated with drivers because of its superb manoeuvrability on both the road and the track. The letter F has held special significance among Lexus owners and engineers ever since. Representing the word flagship and referring to the Fuji Speedway, Lexus’s chief test site, the marque is synonymous with speed, precision, innovation and technological progression. The Lexus F project was initiated by one engineer, Yukihiko Yaguchi, who in the early 2000s pursued a personal dream to create a car with driving capabilities he could proudly announce as “the best around,” he says. In 2004, having experimented with automobile parts on his days off, Yaguchi built a prototype, later known as the IS F. The model attracted significant attention, first from other Lexus engineers who would soon join forces with Yaguchi on the project, and then from the brand’s top executives, who recognized the engineer’s personal work as the beginnings of Lexus’s official foray into the high-performance vehicle market.
