I believe the RC F does have the adjustable variable suspension because it has the S+ mode setting.

I hope it does too, but the AVS is not in the pre-order guide at the start of this thread.
But you never know...

I saw it in the official interactive brochure in the previous page as a spec for the RC-F, which is why I said I was pleased.

lol come on folks, how could the F-Sport have AVS, and the much more costly RC-F doesn't? doing that would be an insult to all the prospective RC-F buyers.

Because hard-core performance cars typically don't have AVS. Eg- the Audi RS5

Take a look at pressroom.lexus.com. There is No mention of AVS for the RC F, but they do mention it for the regular RC (BTW, that one also has four wheel steering!).

"RC F has front and rear coil-spring independent suspension, with monotube gas-filled shock absorbers and ball-jointed stabilizer bars."

Unless Lexus is deliberately lying, the RC F won't have AVS. Sadly.

^^ this. not saying it's bad thing, but when it comes to performance, i am willing to sacrifice ride comfort. avs means more weight and if ppl can argue any weight savings using cf, then this is extra weight. some other high performance cars have no adaptive suspension too. and heck even lfa doesn't have it and especially if avs means more cost on the rcf? i probably would choose not to have it

In the engine bay the strut bar is perched over the shock towers by some kinda covering. The covers look about the size of what the AVS actuators are. Otherwise why have this funky casing over the shock tower?

Looks pretty similar to the covers on the 4GS/3IS. There's no wires shown coming from them so unless they relocated the actuator wiring to the rear then my guess is that AVS is not an option.

What I think is where the strut bolts is a metal cover as a structural component, not the actual AVS actuator which maybe underneath it. Wouldnt want to use the AVS actuator itself as a load bearing component.

Yet again, look at the interactive online brochure Lexus put on lexus.com. AVS is part of the features RC-F has. It has far more validity than the tentative pre-order guide since details were scarce at that time and it is a standard feature.

Also, all of the competitors M3, RS5 etc. come with AVS. It is not uncommon.

Here, look at the RC-F features and AVS is one of the features they describe:

Just tried the "dual screen" option on the Lexus website above. Pretty cool you can control your desktop from your phone!

Went through the microsite several times and I didn't see any mention of adjustable suspension.

Clearly, you are not looking hard enough, if you can't see it. There were numerous hints made to you in the thread such as, "mouse over on the plus sign at the rear", which reveals a bubble with information in it on AVS. Click on the RC-F to get the 3 plus signs to display.
