Lexus has hit a homerun with the new RC Coupe. Everybody seems to like this car, and what’s more, it has an F version that has become the reason for BMW M4’s sleepless nights. Everything about the RC is a success, even its commercials. They have hooked up with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and came up with this truly fantastic spot you can watch after the jump.
The gorgeous model in this ad is Brazillian bombshell Lisalla Montenegro. Like the Lexus RC F, she is a lean and mean performer. In case you want to see more of her, and who can blame you, other Lisalla’s works include campaigns with BeBe, Maybelline, TRESemme, Aerie, Billabong, UGG, H&M, Wolford. She’s also been featured in Vogue, Glamour, Elle, GQ, Esquire, Nylon and many more high-profile magazines. Just don’t fancy her too much, as she’s happily married to LA Anehim Angels star pitcher CJ Wilson.
As for the car, the performance that “leaves its mark,” is the result of a 450 horsepower V8 that sends its power to the rear wheels via an eight-speed Sports Direct Shift transmission and a trick differential. The RC F matches the M4 in terms of outright speed, but the Bimmer will leave it for dead round corners. Still, we have to say we prefer the RC F. The BMW is just too… predictable.
