If Lexus offer 6spd manual on this thing, I would run to the closest Lexus dealer to place an order. Sad Lexus stops playing manual game.

RC drivers further benefit from an intake sound generator which creates a more sporting engine note. The sound creator uses a muffler to emphasise the depth of sound when starting off, and a damper that amplifies the vibration of the intake pulse under acceleration, introducing it as a pleasing note into the cabin to heighten the sporting driving experience.
Will be interesting to hear this in person.

just go listen it in the GS or IS fsport, those cars already have it

personally while it sounds nice, i am not a big fan of artificial sound. while this is far from the ridiculous recording they use in the m5, but i would rather see a different intake design instead

I have the sound generator in my IS350 (non F Sport) and I'm impartial to it. I think it sounds okay, but wouldn't be missing it if it were gone.

I'm just hoping that you can get the luxury package in the F-Sport RC. Absolutely insane you can't in the IS. (in the U.S.)

Why wouldn't you just buy an RC-F instead of this poser mobile?

Anyone notice it looked like a two piece rotor in front?? Similar to the GS350 F-Sport...

Because some consumers want the quality of Lexus, the design of F, a fun ride, but not as much power?

Why are you getting mad that Lexus is offering more options?


I'm sensing some F-elitism here.

Not too many people can throw down $80k for a vehicle.

With that kind of attitude I think you would enjoy a BMW Forum.
