How Much Does a 2016 Lexus RC F Cost?

The 4-seat RC F ($63,800) comes in a single trim level with loads of standard equipment. Highlights include LED running lights, 19-inch staggered-width alloy wheels with performance tires, a sport-tuned suspension, an F-spec body kit, auto-dimming mirrors, dual trapezoidal exhaust outlets, synthetic leather (NuLuxe) upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a 10-way power driver's seat, driver memory settings, an 8-way power passenger seat, a twin-screen LCD driver information center, a 7-in central infotainment screen with a touchpad interface, a rearview camera and a 10-speaker audio system with Bluetooth, HD Radio and satellite radio. For 2016, Lexus adds Enform Service Connect, which connects aspects of the car's controls to the driver's smartphone.

Options include LED headlights, a sunroof, parking sensors, leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, a Performance package (including a carbon-fiber roof, a carbon-fiber rear spoiler and a torque-vectoring differential for improved cornering) and a Premium package (including an adaptive rear spoiler, heated and ventilated front seats and carbon-fiber interior trim).

2016 Lexus RC F vs the competition

2016 BMW M4 -- The pricier M4 has a firmer ride, and its 6-cylinder engine lacks the RC F's intoxicating V8 baritone. On the flip side, its twin turbochargers give it a decided edge in acceleration, and it's a better handler, too.

2017 Ford Mustang GT -- The much cheaper Mustang GT gained some serious refinement with its latest redesign, and the GT model's fire-breathing V8 makes for a fair fight with the RC F.

2017 Chevrolet Corvette -- How important is the RC F's cramped back seat? If you can live without it, the 2-seat C7 Corvette is otherwise a superior performance car in every respect, and it's pretty luxurious, too.

Used Porsche 911 -- If you're willing to leave behind the realm of new cars and consider a used model, a Porsche 911 is a good bet. It doesn't have the RC F's grunt, but it carves corners better than basically anything else -- and, of course, it's a Porsche.
