Want to learn more on how the Lexus RC F was developed?

The Japanese automaker has shared a video showcasing its latest sports car which features the RC F’s Chief Engineer, Yukihiko Yaguchi, describing the development of the car.

The RC F is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 with at least 450 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. In an age where several automakers are turning to smaller powerplants with less cylinders and forced induction, Lexus has decided to stick with good ‘ol V8 power.

In the video, Yaguchi goes into great detail on how the RC F wasn’t built for just incredible speed, but for maximum driving enjoyment. It notes that testing was conducted on the Nurburgring not to achieve lap records, but to make sure the RC F was fun and enjoyable to drive even in the harshest of conditions.
