Lexus has released a new promotional video that highlights the development of the RC F Coupe.

In the video, Vehicle Dynamics Engineer Akihiro Osaka says testing began at the Fuji International Speedway before moving to the Nürburgring because it's "the toughest circuit in the world, providing the opportunity to check a broad range of factors." Osaka goes on to say "The vehicle performed well during testing at the Nürburgring which gave us a lot of confidence in its performance."

Since very few owners will actually drive the model on the green hell, engineers also conducted extensive tests in various markets and conditions to ensure the car's performance could be "properly enjoyed."

As a refresher, the RC F Coupe has an all-new 5.0-liter V8 engine that develops more than 450 bhp (335 kW) and 383 lb-ft (518 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed Sports Direct Shift transmission which should enable the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than 4.6 seconds and hit an estimated top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h).
