The Lexus IS dates back to 1998, when it was introduced as an entry-level luxury car mainly in Japan and the United States. Initially launched as a four-door sedan and five-door wagon, the IS didn’t receive a two-door version until the second-generation model came in 2006. However, the Japanese only built a convertible, postponing the coupe for a few more years. The much-anticipated coupe has finally arrived for the 2015 model year, about 12 months after Lexus unveiled the third-generation IS. But unlike the latter, the coupe carries the RC F nameplate.

Although it borrows most of its styling from the IS sedan, the RC F features a more aggressive design, which is supposed to pay tribute to Lexus’ only supercar as of 2014, the LFA. The RC F, however, is not intended to compete with the likes of the Nissan GT-R, but rather take on the BMW M4, the upcoming Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe and the Audi RS5. Does it have what it takes to play with Germany’s main weapons for the sports coupe market? Read on to find out.

Updated 08/18/2015: Car Buyer took a spin in a U.K.-spec Lexus RC-F and the reviewer was pretty impressed with the model. Enjoy the video!
