Does it represent good value for the price? What features does it come with?
Well, these aren't the cheapest RC seats money can buy. The range starts with the RC Luxury in either 200t ($65,090) or V6-powered 350 ($68,390) form, with the F Sport coming in at $74,180 and $77,240 in 200t and 350 guises respectively. On your way to the $158,837 RC F Carbon there's the Sports Luxury in turbo or six-cylinder, and an entry level RC F.
Our car for the week was the RC200t F Sport at $74,180. At that price, you can expect a 17-speaker Mark Levinson stereo, 19-inch alloys, dual zone climate control, a comprehensive safety package, reversing camera, keyless entry and start, sports pedals, part leather trim, electronic dampers, active cruise control, electric heated/cooled front seats with memory, sat nav, parking sensors front and rear, power everything, auto LED headlights and auto wipers.
Premium paint is an irritating $1500 (although it is very good paint) and you can add the 'Enhancement Pack' for $3500 which brings a sunroof, lane departure warning and high beam assist. Or just have the sunroof for $2500.
The stereo, sat nav and various functions are all run from the integrated dash screen and, in the RC, instead of the strange click mouse there's a trackpad. And... it's worse. Again, Lexus has put in a valiant effort, but the the hardware is badly let down by a poorly-designed software interface.
