It’s hot, sleek, packs 467 horses, has a top track speed of 168 mph yet everyone insists on calling it a luxury coupe. Somewhere, deep inside every 2019 Lexus RC F CPU there’s a chip that is screaming “Are you blind? I’m a sports car.” The chip might be right, but the cornucopia of luxury features, phenomenal fit and build, and the Lexus commitment to perfection, overwhelm even the most impressive performance elements of the RC F.

The 2019 Lexus RC F is the perfect blend for the discriminating driver who demands exceptional performance and handling, but also enjoys the comfort, convenience, and exclusivity of a luxury vehicle. If this is you, then you should seriously consider arranging for a test drive at Lexus of Sacramento. The RC F is something of a rare bird in the Lexus inventory, so be sure to check our online inventory to learn what your opportunities are.

Awesome Performance and Handling

Under the hood is a massive (largest in its class) 5.0L V8 engine that develops 467 horsepower and 389 lb-ft of torque. As big and powerful as it is (0 to 60 in 4.4 seconds) it is certified as an Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle (ULEV). A nice nod to environmental responsibility for a sports car.

The V8 is paired with an eight-speed Sport Direct-Shift transmission that sends power to a rear-wheel drive with TORSEN® limited-slip differential. For even better performance, a Torque Vectoring Differential is optionally available. And because you like control, your RC F is equipped with shifters to give you instant fingertip upshifts and down shifts.

All that power by itself is just show, and possibly dangerous. It’s what you don’t see that keeps the RC F planted to the pavement even on the curviest roads and brings the monster to a safe stop. Up front the suspension has F-Adaptive Variable Suspension; independent double-wishbone with forged aluminum components, coil springs, monotube gas-filled shock absorbers and hollow stabilizer bar. In the rear it’s the same treatment with multi links.

Brembo, the finest name in braking components, provides six-piston monoblock calipers with 14.9-in slotted and ventilated discs up front and four-piston monoblock calipers with 13.5-in slotted and ventilated discs in the rear. That incredibly responsive steering you experience is thanks to the vehicle-speed-sensing rack and pinion provided by Lexus’ Electronic Power Steering system.

Acceleration, handling, and driver confidence. The 2019 Lexus RC F is the whole package.

Race Ready Cockpit

When you first slide into the driver’s sport seat you realize that this interior is unlike other Lexus cabins. Sure, all of the materials are high quality and upscale like leather and carbon fiber, and attention to detail is evidenced everywhere. But this design is decidedly driver-centric. In truth, the RC F forges a connection with the driver like never before.

It starts with the incredibly comfortable, high back, sports seat. Heavily bolstered to keep you firmly planted when carving up curves, their unique design is impressive and functional. A full color LCD gauge cluster displays tach, speed and other real time performance conditions to keep the driver informed. Available as an option, a Remote Touchpad mimics a smartphone to help you intuitively stay in command. And because we all need to be connected all the time the onboard Wi-Fi pairs with the Lexus ENFORM system to create our most advanced connectivity suite yet.

If you want head turning excitement in your driving experience, you owe it to yourself to see the 2019 Lexus RC F in person. Give us a call today so we can get that done.
