Since Lexus introduced the RC in 2014, we've seen two generations of the rivaling BMW 4 Series Coupe. Any model that's more than a few years old is considered outdated in today's fast-moving industry, yet Toyota's premium car brand has brought it into the 2024 model year with minor revisions and a small price hike.
The base RC 300 starts at $45,920 for the base 300 before destination. The 300 F Sport, 300 AWD, and 300 F Sport AWD can be had from $50,540, $48,610, and $52,830, respectively. The RC 350 and RC 350 F Sport start at $48,850 and $53,740 with RWD, with the AWD system being a $2,165 and $1,725 option, respectively.

As for the sporty RC F, with its 472-horsepower (479 ps/352 kW) 5.0L V8 engine and the ability to hit sixty (97 kph) in 4.2 seconds, Lexus is asking at least $68,295. 2024 is the final model year for the faster RC F Track Edition, which takes under four seconds to sixty, and this model will set interested parties back a minimum of $101,670.

Having reminded ourselves a bit about the RC and RC F, it's time to cast the light on a modified copy of the range-topping flavor. You are looking at a 2015 Lexus RC with too many mods for our taste. It has fender flares, a massive rear wing, an adjustable lip spoiler, fat side skirts, and a custom diffuser, alongside some colorful decals on the black body.

The Rohana bi-tone alloys came from the aftermarket world and were wrapped in thin tires. They spin around the yellow brake calipers, a hue also visible on the apron and diffuser. The premium compact sports coupe has an air suspension, a black interior with leather wrapped around the bucket seats and other components, diamond-stitched floor mats, and a few other things.

Its 5.0-liter V8 was not left untouched either, as the vendor mentions stuff like the methanol injection, RR headers, and Armitrix exhaust system without actually revealing how powerful it has become. This car has 47,611 miles (76,622 km) on the odometer and is in good overall condition (if you can ignore the weird body kit and colorful wrap).

As you already know, this 2015 Lexus RC F is looking for a new home. Garage Kept Motors advertises it here, and they're asking $69,900 to let it go. That's about as much as a brand-new RC F and some $12,000 less than a BMW M4 Competition, whose 3.0-liter twin-turbo straight-six develops 503 hp (510 ps/375 kW), rocketing it to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. So, if you had a similar budget and wanted to spruce up your garage with a sports coupe, would you blow it on this tuned RC F?
