The RC is an interesting car. It’s not simply a shortened version of the new IS, as one might expect. Instead, its chassis is an amalgam of several different Lexi (my plural of Lexus). The front chunk is GS. The extra-rigid middle is taken from the old IS C convertible. And the back bit is from the new IS.
To stiffen it further, Lexus engineers added laser screw welds and four extra brace points throughout the body. The result is a seriously stiff sports coupe. In this way, the RC is outstanding. But I’ll get to that later.
