Lexus RC 350 f sport. Loads of fun. Who needs a V8?
This is my fifth Lexus and I’m never disappointed. With a rush of blood to the head I traded the IS 350 on the two door RC model. Two engines, the 5 litre V8 or the venerable 3.5 litre V6. Mine has the V6 but feels to be a totally different engine to the one in the IS. It has been remapped to provide totally different delivery characteristics despite putting out the same 233 kw. It also has a limited slip diff AND 4 wheel steering. I had never driven a car with 4 wheel steering and am now hooked. This is a beautiful designed and engineered car and a gem to drive. All the grunt you need without a V8. If you want to have fun and turn heads this is the car for you.
