Lexus has announced it’s new high-performance RC F coupe will go on sale in January next year priced from £59,995.
The V8 announced in January at Detroit will be available in two forms, the RC F and the RC F Carbon, the latter bumping the price up to £67,995.
Both come with the same 5.0 litre V8 petrol motor, mated to an eight-shift ‘box and producing 450 BHP and 383lb ft of torque,
All this and the looks we already know about, but in the run up to the Paris show Toyota’s posher badge has handed us the spec sheet.
