Lexus RC F 0-60, Quarter Mile Numbers Clocked

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 9/20/2014 Kelly Pleskot

The RC F has pumped new blood into the Lexus lineup, offering the best V-8 performance ever from the brand. In our recent review, we talked about the car's old-school naturally aspirated V-8 that has 467 horses and 389 lb-ft of torque. But we also noted just how heavy it is for a sports coupe (4040 pounds). So the question is: How does it compare to the competition when all the numbers are on the table?

This week, we took another 2015 Lexus RC F (reputedly with final powertrain tuning) out testing in the desert to see what stats we could glean from the new car. It turns out we were able to achieve faster numbers than in the previous test. This time, our RC F hit 60 mph from a standstill in just 4.3 seconds, a 0.2 second improvement over the first RC F we had in our possession. Previously, we had noted that the RC F's competitor, the BMW M4, scoots from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds, while the all-wheel-drive Audi RS 5 comes in even quicker at 3.9 seconds.

When it comes to the quarter mile, the Lexus RC F managed 12.7 seconds @ 112.2 mph. This is a bit off the BMW M4, which completes the task in 12.2 seconds, and the Audi RS 5's 12.3 seconds.

We also performed a figure-eight test, which revealed a time of 24.9 seconds. Average lateral g came in at 0.92g, and our Lexus was able to come to a complete stop from 60 mph in just 107 ft.
