Audi RS5 Vs Lexus RC-F: A Battle Of The Sports Coupe Outcasts

Let is say that you are out in the market for the really fast four-seater coupe and you don’t want the BMW M4 or the Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe. Your only options -if you live in Europe- are either Audi RS5 or the Lexus RC-F.

The Audi RS5 is a latest member of this segment, has already been criticized for being much less of the sports car compared to the benchmarks, despite being blindingly quick off a line.

Audi reckons it will do 0-62mph in 3.9 seconds, thanks to the combination of the 444 horsepower twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6, the eight-speed automatic gearbox and the latest version of a trademark Quattro all-wheel drive.

Perhaps it is not the Audi’s fault for aforementioned criticisms as this company was first to acknowledge that a new RS5 is supposed to be the gran turismo model in the RS lineup, which is the fancy way of saying you shouldn’t expect the same driving thrills with an M4 or the C63.

That doesn’t mean that it’s the bad car though, only one that is not as sharp as the best ones in the class. And then there is the Lexus RC-F, the fast coupe with the visual presence of the…clown, especially with that exposed carbon bonnet.

Lexus hasn’t made many friends with its busy design language and everyone agrees that the vehicle powered by the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 is one that deserves respect.

On paper it might have more power than the Audi RS5 but the combination of a heavy body with the lack of torque in the low rev range might not impress you, and especially after driving the Audi.
