What Will The RC-F Engine’s Output Be?

When the 2015 Lexus RC-F was revealed back in January, the official press states that its engine has more than 450 horsepower and more than 383 lb.-ft. of torque.

The reason why Lexus does not announce the exact numbers, is because their engineers are still working on the final production version of the engine, fine tunning its parameters.

News from Austrialia’s National Motoring, Lexus engineers are trying to put another 10 to 15kW of muscles on top of the already-published “more than 450hp” figure. This means we are looking at 463 – 470hp when the RC-F is in dealership’s parking lot later this year.

However, YouWheel.com editors are hoping the final number to be the “480” as mentioned briefly in a MotorTrend article (which was later modified to remove the “480” number).

Below is a description of the RC-F instrument panel’s functionality. One fact we find in this picture is RC-F’s engine will rev up to 7500rpm (fuel cut-off) with redline starts at 7300rpm.
