Steve Sutcliffe is at the wheel of the all-new 471bhp Lexus RC F, a £60,000 rival for the likes of BMW's M3 and M4. Lexus engineers claim the car is just as capable on the track as it is on the road - are they right? We find out.

However for 60 large you will find Some tasty Mercs that do and offer an alt to the blue and white prop. Nice try for Lexus they need to be in this market, but we should wait and see if the 4 door brings new changes with it to better compete. O and for the saloon, Lexus move those exterior mirrors. They don't look right.

Is it my imagination or does the RCF lurch as it enters a corner? Especially on a left hand bend I'm seeing the car take a set about the diagonal axis as the right front sinks and the left rear rises.

Surely I can't be the only one thinking what that 5LTR V8 would be like in the GT86?? If Toyota had the b*lls to make it work and fit they would sell thousands world wide...aka new Supra???

Deserves to be better,makes a nice noise,handling?,well,i wouldn't take my daily on a Track,all that strain on tyres,suspension,brakes, can't be good for the car,no,i like my car to be all things drive wise to me,cruise quietly when i want.pass a line of cars if the opportunity happens and so on,subjective i guess.

    The handsome Jaguar XF Sportbrake exhibits all the hallmarks that makes the saloon great, and with the silky smooth diesel V6 makes it a compelling choice
  • Volkswagen T-Roc TDI

    19 October 2017
    Volkswagen's new compact crossover has the looks, the engineering and the build quality to be a resounding success, but not with this diesel engine
  • BMW M550i
    First Drive
    19 October 2017
    The all-paw M550i is a fast, effortless mile-muncher, but there's a reason why it won't be sold in the UK
  • Volvo V90
    First Drive
    19 October 2017
    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided
  • Kia Stonic
    First Drive
    18 October 2017
    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
