2023 Lexus RCF F Sport
Introducing the 2023 RC F SPORT Special Performance Package, where extraordinary drive meets expressive design. Offered across the RC 300 F SPORT and RC 350 F SPORT classes, this package stands out with a unique bi-tone paint scheme featuring the RC body in Incognito and a contrasting hood and roof with an Obsidian finish.
And a distinct 19-inch Enkei F SPORT split-10-spoke alloy wheel finished in Dark Gray Metallic is offered in width adjustments to further accentuate the coupe’s athletic demeanor.
It’s not the newest Lexus in its lineup, but with a 472-hp V-8 engine under its hood, the 2023 RC F is really the boisterous one. It shares its platform—and its name—with the sexy-looking but warm-performing standard RC coupe.
However, for the F assignment, Lexus has included every performance-enhancing piece it has in its arsenal. In addition to the thunderous V-8, all RC Fs come with adaptive suspension, upgraded Brembo brakes and a limited-slip rear differential. Even with all those hi-po mods, the RC F can’t keep up with rivals like the Audi RS5 and BMW M4 in terms of both performance and handling.
The RC F is a pretty good drive car with a smoother ride than the German; it is not a thrilling and sharp road eater. The cabin is luxurious, its infotainment technology is finally keeping up with the times, and Lexus equips every model with a competitive suite of driver assistance that includes adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assistance.
The RC F is largely unchanged for 2023, but Lexus is happy to trade the car’s outdated infotainment system for a more modern one that uses a touchscreen rather than a console-mounted touchpad. Elsewhere, the more racing Fuji Speedway Edition model now comes with updated Hitachi shocks and can be painted in a new color called Incognito.
