Lexus RC F Rift – VR Driving Simulator with Oculus Rift
Recently unveiled by Lexus, Lexus RC F is a striking looking car which arguably is the best M3 fighter till date. Lexus is a luxury vehicle division of Japanese automaker Toyota Motor Corporation that always amazes us with its incredible, high performance vehicles. Lexus RF C boasts a powerful V8 performance – something we have never seen before, a new 5.0 liter engine with engine power well above 450 hp and more than 383 lb-ft of torque. It features wider wheels and tires, an active rear wing, air scoops, cooling ducts and carbon fiber components. The chief engineer of Lexus RC F, Yukihiko Yaguchi, commented about the functional beauty, ‘I have built RC F to be enjoyed by all enthusiasts, no matter what their level of expertise.’ According to the reviews, the car is something you can enjoy driving everyday because of its utmost comfort and unimpeachable capability. Even though its price is sky high, there won’t be any regrets later on. However much we want to, not all of us can afford to buy the luxurious vehicle. That’s where Oculus Rift comes in.
If you have been fantasizing about getting behind the wheels of Lexus RC F, there is some good news for you! You can now satisfy your desire by experiencing the deluxe car virtually. The company has developed a VR RC F set up by integrating Oculus Rift DK2 headset with the car’s steering column and foot pedals dubbed as Lexus RC F Rift. It will be exhibited nationally for a few months in some of the finest auto shows. The user will get to race the car around the trails in an immersive environment, observe and get the feel of the interior of the car and enjoy the thrill of driving the Lexus RC F.
