LEXUS RC 300h - FULL THROTTLE + CONTROLLED EMERGENCY STOP (2016)
APEX Auto Magazine will soon come with the TestDrive of the LEXUS RC 300h. We already have an acceleration video* of the RC 300h for you that also shows a new element as part of the test: a full emergency stop**.
The LEXUS RC. A coupe with a striking design that comes with either a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, a 4-cylinder hybrid version, a V6, and as the range-topping RC F with a 5.0-litre V8 that we tested before. In the Netherlands, there are just two options to choose from: the hybrid version RC 300h and the top model RC F. This time we show what the RC 300h is capable of in both the acceleration as well as the braking area.
Keep posted to see the TestDrive of the LEXUS RC 300h that will be coming online soon!

* As you might have noticed, th!
e layout of our FULL THROTTLE-video has been changed slightly.!
The scrolling bar in the top of the screen is the actual measurement of the acceleration times. The times up to 50 km/h and 100 km/h are underlined in red and show the ‘best-time’-measurement that has taken place at another time and are therefore not indicative for the acceleration in the video. Pay attention: the acceleration in the video can show short interruptions due to traffic.
** We decided to add a new element (FULL EMERGENCY STOP) to the video to show what happens when full braking is apllied in order to show the stability of the car in a situation where such is needed. This extreme stress test (as well as the acceleration) is conducted by professionals and should under no circumstances be reproduced. And viewers must understand that we only test the acceleration and braking performance of a car where and when circumstances allow. Fact: Brakes can reach temperatures in excess of 500 Degrees Celsius or 932 Degrees Fahrenheit.
