Another Japanese model launching in July is the Lexus RC F. 

Powered by a normally-aspirated 5.0-litre V8 engine, Lexus says the latest iteration of the high-performance coupe weighs less than its predecessor and has dialed in dynamic handling.

The RC F starts at R1 318 300, while the RC F Track Edition is priced at R2 098 200.
