Based on the all-new RC coupe that was revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show last November, the Lexus RC F has wider wheels and tires, an active rear wing, air scoops, cooling ducts, and available carbon fiber components. The hood is higher than that of the RC to accommodate the larger V8 engine and create the powerful flared profile suited to an F model. Ducts beneath the front bumper, fenders and aerodynamic stabilizing fins create a stance which further identifies the F model.
Additionally, the RC F debuts a Lexus-first elliptical cross-section thick-grip steering wheel with optimum placement of paddle gear shifts. All-new high back seats with an embossed F on the headrests offer the driver and passenger an exceptional performance fit. The seats are available in a selection of five leather trims, each with contrasting stitching.
Detailed specifications for the RC F are expected to become available next Tuesday.
