Wondering what it's like to get behind the wheel of Lexus' high-performance 2015 RC F sports coupé? Now you can find out -- well, sort of. The company has built a virtual reality RC F using the car's actual steering column, foot pedals and an Oculus Rift DK2 headset. It calls the setup the Lexus RC F Rift, naturally, and it'll be at select auto shows across the nation for the next several months. The player can race the car around a virtual track, but it's not clear if the VR test drive is an accurate representation of how the real vehicle handles. At the very least, it's a novel way to get a feel for the car's interior, and a good look at how companies outside of the gaming industry may use virtual reality technology in the future.
