Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
The Lexus RC F is expensive to buy and costly to run. Its official combined economy figure of 25mpg is poor by modern performance car standards, and the CO2 emissions are high too, at 268g/km.
We’d recommend the standard RC F version over the rest of the range. Carbon and Track Edition versions come with aggressive styling that might not be to all tastes, and the go-fast tech fitted doesn’t transform the RC F into a weekend racer, making it hard to justify the extra cost involved.
