I have been a well known Lexus RC hater. I thought it was ugly, tacky, too heavy, etc...
While I’m still right about the heavy part, I have decided I was completely wrong about the styling. I was next to one for about 15 minutes this morning (champagne-ish color, f sport) in a somewhat stationary fashion.
The car is extremely handsome, elegant, yet sporty. It is well proportioned and pictures don’t do it justice. The slits and other “speed” bits are not as tacky as they appear in pictures and are actually somehow complementary. I’m declaring it one of the best looking 2 door 4 seaters on the market right now. There I said it.
Also, I am a staunch Lexus hater so this is a major thing for me to be saying.
