2015 Lexus RC F: By the Numbers


With the debut today of the RC F at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Lexus released a few more of the car's specs. Most are estimated, but they help give a picture of how the new performance coupe stacks up in the luxury sports-car segment. Notable specs include:

5.0-liter V-8 engine makes more than 450 horsepower and 383 pounds-feet of torque

V-8 runs on an efficient Atkinson cycle at cruising speeds, switches to a conventional Otto cycle at higher rpm

Eight-speed automatic transmission

Torque-vectoring rear differential, a first for Lexus

Curb weight less than 3,968 pounds

168-mph estimated top speed (electronically limited)
