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.
Putting added control into the hands of the driver, the RC F features two advanced handling systems: a standard TORSEN® limited-slip differential* that pushes power to the rear wheel with the most grip, and an available Lexus-first rear Torque Vectoring Differential that dynamically distributes more torque to the outside rear wheel to help rotate the vehicle through the turn while also helping you hold your line with unprecedented precision.
For dynamic performance on and off the track, the eight-speed Sport Direct-Shift transmission offers manual control through large, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Precisely positioned for faster gear changes, they deliver split-second upshifts and nearly seamless downshifts. And, in automatic mode, the transmission's AI Shift Control features a G-sensor that detects when the RC F enters a curve, and holds the lower gear throughout for optimal response when accelerating out.
An available expansive moonroof with unique outer-sliding design provides a larger opening and more interior headroom than conventional moonroofs.
NuLuxe seating material offers more than just good looks and a supple texture. It weighs half as much as leather, and its manufacturing process generates far less CO2 and VOC emissions than other synthetic leathers.
The track-inspired instrumentation found in the cockpit is designed to keep your heart racing. The full-color LCD multi-information display within the gauge cluster allows you to quickly read the data you need to achieve optimum performance. Readouts include performance data such as Variable Drive Modes, gear position and odometer information. Additionally, this in-dash display offers multimedia linkage so that you can view incoming calls, current song titles and more.
The available 17-speaker, 835-watt Mark Levinson® Premium Surround Sound Audio System features patented, proprietary Clari-Fi®* technology that restores audio quality from compressed music, resulting in crisp, clear, dynamic sound from any source. This, combined with technology designed to create an expansive “sweet spot” of audio, envelops every passenger in three-dimensional sound that rivals the finest home audio systems.

VDIM is designed to predict and take steps to help prevent a skid even before it occurs by using a combination of individual-wheel braking, torque modulation and steering torque assistance. Headed to the track? The exclusive Sport mode setting adjusts the sensitivity of the system, raising the threshold before VDIM intervenes, and enabling you to push the vehicle to its limits.
