Lexus RC coupe revealed ahead of Tokyo Motor Show debut

Lexus has unveiled the all-new RC coupe ahead of its world debut at the Tokyo Motor Show on Nov. 20.

Two RC models will be displayed – RC 350 with a 3.5-litre V6 engine, and the RC 300h hybrid with a 2.5-litre engine. No engine and performance specs were released at this point.

The RC coupe takes inspiration from the LF-LC and LF-CC concepts, featuring a low and wide spindle front grille. The front also shows triangular headlights with three LED lamps.

All this rides on 18-inch five-spoke alloys or optional 19-inch deeply sculpted ten-spoke alloys with both options featuring black and platinum centre caps.

Lexus is also using a new painting process on the RC coupe that uses multiple layers of clear and deeper-colored coating, showing a brighter and more contrasting shade, especially on the racy red exterior.

The interior boasts maximum use of contrasting colours, materials and lighting. The driver’s cockpit is divided into operational and display zones, with upper zone housing the instrument panel and a seven-inch navigation screen while a layered centre console integrates a new Lexus first Remote Touch Interface.

The RC Coupe is 4693mm long, 1394mm tall, 1838mm wide and has a wheelbase of 2730mm.

The hot RC F is also expected to follow.
