Local pricing and engine specifications confirmed for Lexus RC F performance coupe.
Lexus have confirmed the the RC F will arrive in Australia in February 2015, priced from $133,500.
The RC F will also be available in a $147,500 'Carbon' variant, which adds a carbon-fibre body kit, roof and cabin trim alongside Alcantara covered seats.
Powered by a 351kW/530Nm naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8, the RC F is the Lexus equivalent of BMW's M4 and Audi's RS5, and comes in about $30,000 cheaper than both Germans.
Also in the ballpark - and also from Germany - is the outgoing Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. Its starting price is $157,545, a mere $10,000 more than the Lexus.
Lexus says the new RC F builds on the lessons learned with the LFA supercar, and will take the mantle as the company's 'halo' model from the IS F.
