Lexus RC F Performance Coupe present at Detroit

Posted on Jan 16, 2014 by

Based on the spectacular RC coupe that debuted at the Tokyo Motor Show in November last year, the RC F features wider wheels and tires, an active rear wing, air scoops, cooling ducts and carbon fiber components—all delivering ‘functional beauty’. The RC F’s styling, highlights the vehicle’s optimum high-speed stability—essential for the most powerful ever V8 performance car.

The signature Lexus spindle grille dominates the front view, with a subtle “F” motif embedded in the mesh below the Lexus symbol. Meanwhile, a higher hood that helps create a powerful flared profile and ducts beneath the front bumper and fenders, and strategically placed aerodynamic stabilizing fins, all combine to further identify the vehicle as an F.

Air outlets at the rear of the front fender form the shape of an L when they merge with side sill extensions, while stacked trapezoidal quad-outlet tailpipes at the rear further the aggressive look. Design cues have been taken from the Lexus LFA supercar: An active rear wing deploys from the deck at 80 km/h and retracts at less than 40 km/h to enhance the coupe’s lines at a standstill.

The striking cockpit-like interior complements the aggressive exterior. Unique components include the meters, steering wheel, seats, ornamentation and pedals. The instrument panel is dominated by a switchable central dial on which information, display color and text size changes in line with the driving mode—four in total—selected.

The RC F prioritizes occupant comfort through such features as a Lexus-first elliptical cross-section thick-grip steering wheel with optimum placement of paddle gear shifts and all-new, high-back seats, embossed with an F on the headrests, styled to resemble form-fitting athletic sportswear and to offer similar levels of support. The seats come in five available leather trims, each with contrast stitching.
