Are you thinking of purchasing a coupe, you are? I’m not going to persuade you to buy what I think is the best option for you, but at the end the only thing you can do is to thank me for speaking open-mindedly. Coupes are all about the looks and they have to perform to be recognized and above all sold, these are segments where the 2016 Lexus RCF has a lot to offer.
When you have a vehicle whose looks are aggressive and elegant at the same time, from the outside and sophisticated and attractive from the inside you can’t ask for more from a coupe. This car is real, not a fiction of my imagination or madness this is the upcoming 2016 Lexus RCF. We are used to hearing good news and gossip about the Lexus but new RCF is something special, a top coupe making room for itself between the main German rivals BMW M4, few Mercedes-AMG models and of course Audi RS5.
The engine for this beauty called 2016 Lexus RCF should be unchanged, meaning we anticipate the same powerful 5.0 liter V8 unit with almost 470 horsepower and over 380 pound-feet of torque in the upcoming RCF version. This engine will send power through an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and with the V8 unit it will fly on the road. You will have to choose between Eco, Sport, Sport+ and Manual when in drive mode of course using the paddle shifters to change gears. There is going to be some weight increase on this model but it will still go smoothly and make an impressive first look to everyone on the road. One of the things that we like most, and we are sure that many others will like is the convertible version that gives you the pure road and engine sound which is incredible.
On the road the 2016 Lexus RCF demonstrates its true quality: speed, power and dynamics. To control this vehicle is much easier thankfully to the Vehicle Integrated Dynamic System. This system allows a high level of steering assistance and the control of all the systems in the car making room for you to enjoy the ride. RCF sounds expectedly good when started, like a lion in wild it will scare you and at the same time make an impression. As we already said it goes smoothly with an V8 engine and on the road it has a record 16/25/19 mpg city/highway/combined while acceleration from 0 to 60 mph is done in just 4.7 seconds.
We don’t expect many changes on the exterior of the 2016 Lexus RCF, the design and the looks will stay recognizable just like on previous model. Same as in the previous model there will be several options of equipment for you to decide which you would rather choose. The standard equipment for the new RCF will include 19-inch wheels, improved LED headlights, heated front seats, automatic climate control, driver memory settings and much more even in the standard equipment. This sports car will stay true to its masculine and elegant look taking it further than ever before and putting the standard for all the top sport coupes.
We are pretty sure that the interior of the 2016 Lexus RCF will be enriched with top quality materials combined with upgraded technologies giving it winning formula for the market. In the front two seats there is plenty of space and comfort to enjoy every drive, but in the back is where all the coupes lack space and much needed comfort. The 2016 standard interior equipment will bring 7-inch display, touchpad cursor control, HD radio, Bluetooth phone and connectivity, 10 speaker sound system, IPOD and USB interface and much more even in this base trim.
2016 Lexus RCF Price
Taking all information into account we predict that the 2016 Lexus RCF will be announced in the summer of 2015 and will appear on the market in the last quarter of the same year. We are still waiting on the official confirmation from the makers. For the previous model the price was one of the most exciting things that separated the RCF from the competitors in the same class. For the base version we expect to see price of $60,000 and can go up to $70,000 for the top trim level. This is in line with previous year model so we do not expect to see any big changes.
