Rc-f's Taken A Big Hit!

114 posts in this topic

The one in Lexus Croydon has dropped to £35k.

They seem to have a lot of bother shifting these. I wonder is it:

  1. People having a test drive and not being impressed;
  2. Lack of knowledge of the existence of the car - a catch-22 with there being so few on the roads compared to M4's and C63's;
  3. The negative press - my impression is that most of the negativity is slanted towards it's capabilities on the track as opposed to the road;

On another note, the lowest asking price for the GS-F is now £45k. :)

I'd say it's #2

Mine's the 300h but so many people have commented they'd never seen or heard of the RC. Even on the forums, not been posted before, never heard if it.

I'm not bothered to be honest. The car's rarity is part of it's appeal. There are soooo many MBs and BMWs  it such a breath of fresh air. Long may it last (I'm sure Lexus doesn't think the same...)

And 46k for a carbon pack model. That's a heck of a dip from 72k ish new??? Amazing value at current prices. I wonder how much the cars will come down year on year.

Going back over this thread, it appears that November of last year was when we'd our first sub £40k RC-F listed.

Now, 6 months later, we have our first 2016 model at sub £40k (and with TVD/MARK LEVINSON).

First UK deliveries of the LC500 and LC500H are 3 months away which may put some further downward pressure on the RC-F.

So am I. It has been listed for a long time.

Was tempted to go and look at this one myself before I bought mine, but am not so keen on red interiors.

Has anybody on here been to see it?

I believe "red" interior looks very good in real life it is more like dark red/burgundy - in pictures, it looks more like bright red.

The RC red interior is quite dark but the RC F is much brighter, not that far off from the pictures on the website.

There does not seem to be a lot of demand for the RC let alone the RC F. When dealers find it difficult to sell new cars, thesame will go for used vehicles. The market is just too small, no demand, therefore these cars depreciate faster than the competition. When there are no buyers you can decrease whatever you want but it wont help.

I expect thesame to happen to the LC500. 

Most likely these cars will end up with a small group of enthusiasts when pricelevels have bottomed out !!!
