Chris Harris Drives The Lexus RC-F: Disappoints On The Track, A Pleasure On The Road

Not as capable, but better looking than an M4 - agreed?

With a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 making 467 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque and the ability to sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds, the Lexus RC F is certainly a force to be reckoned with, whether driven on road or on track. But can it live with the cars it was designed to cross swords with? Chris Harris is the latest to get behind the wheel, having been invited to do a few hot laps around New York’s Monticello circuit before taking it for a spin on surrounding roads.

There’s plenty to love about the naturally-aspirated Lexus, not least its interior and exterior styling and the sound of the 5.0-liter V8, but on the track it appears to be a massive letdown. Take it out on the road, however, and it’s a car you would be more than content with.
