4. RC F
The F is the high-performance line of the RC and was unveiled during the 2014 North American International Auto Show. Then, it began to show up at dealerships in November of that year as a 2015 model. This high-powered vehicle features a 5.0-liter 2UR-GSE V8 engine that produces 467 horsepower. It’s paired with Toyota’s AA80E eight-speed transmission, Brembo four-wheel power-assisted disc brakes with ABS, brake assist, and electronic brake force distribution.
They are still in production but had their best sales year in 2015. This RC F is equipped with Torque Vectoring Differential that has three operating modes: Track, Slalom, or Standard. It also has a coil-spring independent suspension in the rear and front, gas-filled shock absorbers, ball-joined stabilizer bars, and 19-inch forged aluminum wheels.
With the Aerodynamic Package, customers also receive tuning of the underbody, an active rear spoiler, intakes located in the grille, plus aero stabilizing fins, and front fender vents. The Carbon Fiber Package comes with a clear coated carbon fiber roof, carbon fiber engine board, and an active rear spoiler.
5. GS F
Ask anyone what one of the best sport sedans is for the money, and you’ll inevitably hear about the Lexus GS F. The GS has been in production since 1993, so it’s an iconic model for the company. It’s lasted all these years because of its sharp style, custom-tuned SACHS suspension, and extreme comfortability.
It comes equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces 467 horsepower. With power like this, it’s capable of hitting 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. This engine is slightly old-school since it isn’t turbocharged.
The differences between the GS F and the regular-model GS starts with the returned steering. This offers impressive control, a comfortable ride, and minimum body roll. It also comes with a long list of safety features and driver aids standard. Considering most competitors charge for many of these features, this is a perk. Even Edmunds picked the GS F as one of their Best Sport Sedans of the year.
Some of the safety features include Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning System, and Lane Keeping Assist. In addition, the first ten years of ownership comes with the Enform Safety Connect plus Enform Service Connect.
