Lexus RC F review – MPG and running costs
With a 5-litre V8 and rear-wheel drive the RC F is going to accumulate a big fuel and tyre bills
When we ran a Lexus RC F in our long-term Fast Fleet, matching Lexus’s official combined mpg figure of 26.2 proved tricky; we averaged around 22mpg. For comparison, our long-term Audi RS5 averaged 25.9mpg against an official claim of 32.5mpg.
With the RC F being so comfortable going sideways, you might want to budget for the rear tyres to be replaced frequently. The 275/35 R19 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres that are standard fitment on the back of the RC F cost around £250 each, fitted.
