Forza Horizon 2: Back to the RC

When the Lexus RCF arrived in Forza Horizon 2 via the Top Gear Car Pack, I was given the opportunity to try it out on a Monthly Rivals event just to see how this high-caliber Lexus can do for me and the result is obvious that the RCF is not Lexus' finest hour when it comes to creating a two-door super saloon that can compete with the likes of the BMW M4 and the Audi RS5. There's also another problem with the RCF and it's obvious that some people in the real world bought an RCF because, I might get a point here, they couldn't afford a Nissan GT-R or the Toyota 86 is not quick on its own right.

I'd reckon that things might change if I made the Lexus RC F a star in its own right and to find out, I signed this car on a championship targeted for Super Saloons at Sisteron and find out the RC F is still a wonderful super saloon to drive or not. But first...







Quite a rude joke, isn't it? But anyway, it's now themed after that little girl from THE IDOLM@STER series, Yayoi Takatsuki, and having one in your RCF is what you called a cost-conscious petrolhead-slash-producer.

You see, in Japan, the RCF was priced at 9.53 million Yen, which is a million yen less than the BMW M4, making it a bargain to buy for a cost-conscious petrolhead who can't afford a BMW M4.

Another reason why a cost-conscious petrolhead chose the RCF is because the 5.0L V8 engine that powers it develops more power than the BMW M4's 3.0L six-cylinder turbo engine and it's better sounding too than the artificially-tuned exhaust note of the M4 as well. Hmmm, quite a rough choice but is it cost-effective? Let's see...



Well, it's obvious that even though it has more power than the BMW M4 or the Audi RS5, it's still hard to master the RC F's unclever handling characteristics and it's difficult to keep up when its opponent is on a one-sided fight to the finish.

You need to take a lot of time to master the RC F and get things right to have the upper hand against the opposition but no matter how bad the RC F resulted, it's still part of thriving a good example of JDM passion in the world of Forza Horizon 2. It may not have the striking looks nor the European car-like precision but the RC F is all about enjoying it to the fullest. Unpleasant but it takes time to getting used to it.
