Well, folks, the verdict is in. We had been wondering what Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson would think of the new Lexus RC F. Now we know … and wish we didn’t.
Back in 1990, Lexus only sold the ES250, which was based on the then-current Toyota Camry, and the LS400, its rival to the big four-doors from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Cadillac. Had that latter car been a dud, I probably wouldn’t be writing this on this site right now.
You want to get a crossover and see what your neighbor is always bragging about. You also want to shut him up by bringing home one that’s fancier than his, so you’re either going to buy a Lexus NX200t F Sport or a Mercedes-Benz GLA250 4MATIC.
Matt Farah from the Smoking Tire is determined to take his LS 400 to over a million miles, and he’s enlisted help from around the country to make it happen. And while pitching in might be fun, it won’t always be easy.
On its website, Lexus states the RC F was “developed to satisfy the most demanding driving enthusiasts.” Apparently, they didn’t know who Chris Harris is when they went to the engineering lab and test track—or did they?
