It's a pig. Both in looks (IMO) and in weight (not just MO).

Reviews I have read do not sound positive at all. It weighs 4,040 lbs, more than an all-wheel-driver RS5.

Is heavy, drives heavy but (surprise surprise) Sutcliffe can't shut up about sound.

I thought that people only liked sound because it meant a better car? In this case, worse car but.....sounds nice (to him) when he is fighting it.

.....alrighty then.......

Car seems to fit into a different category than the M3/M4. It seems more like a grand tourer, instead of being geared more towards something resembling a sports car.

It is a big heavy coupe, that is comfortable to drive. Has great build quality and fantastic engine. But to cumbersome to drive on the track.

1840kg = 4056.51 lbs O_O

Makes the F8x look like 90s coked up model.

Performance is too close to the old ISF to merit upgrading. If I were in the market for a new performance sedan/coupe, I'd go with the M3/M4.

No thanks. The design is just awful. Doesn't look like it will age well.

How sad that Lexus haven't stepped their game up.

This attempt has to be one of the worst. The e92 is prob faster!

Man I am not feeling the look of that car. It kinda looks like a Honda Accord which is insulting to the Accord. That interior looks like an early ES300.

Sutcliffe is trying his best to earn his evening's meal, clearly having a tough time finding positive comments, but still avoids comparisons to the M4 since he panned it.

The RC-F looks like a handful on the track in the video.

The Tron seat look would get tiresome.
