Unrestrained aggressive styling defines every angle of the Lexus RC. This bold new direction is led by the widest and lowest Lexus spindle grille and deeply contoured lines never before seen in the Lexus line-up. L-shaped LED headlamps highlight the Lexus identity, along with independent Daytime Running Lamps. Adding to its powerful stance are the new LED front fog lamps, located close to the spindle grille border, which produce a bright beam to ensure excellent visibility in low light situations.
For the wheels, there is the option of a muscular 18" version or a deeply sculpted 19" design. In the sports-enhanced RC F Sport, the mark of distinction is provided through exclusive exterior colour options that include Lava Orange, Radiant Blue and White Nova.Its F Sport attitude is further projected by a special mesh pattern of the spindle grille and 19" aluminium wheel with a dark grey metallic finish.
The sportiness of the Lexus RC continues inside with a seamless blend of contrasting shades, smooth leather seats and innovative lighting. Interior colour options include Black, Topaz Brown, Moon Stone and a new Cloveshade. 8-way power front seats ensure highly customisable comfort for both driver and front passenger. For added driving convenience, a 4.2" colour multi-information display in the meter cluster projects essential entertainment,communication and navigational information within the driver's vision.
This information can also be easily adjusted using steering wheel controls. Discerning audiophiles have the option to choose the Mark Levinson Audio System with 17 speakers and a 5.1 surround system. The focus on sports driving is even more noticeable in the RC F Sport. An exclusive 8" LFA-inspired meter cluster showcases digital instrumentation that automatically slides to reveal additional data. Front seats with accent stitching help to firmly hold the driver during sporty driving. Interior colours include an exclusive Dark Rose shade.
A strong and purpose-built chassis lies at the foundation of the Lexus RC's world class driving experience. Powered by a 3.5L V6 engine, the sports coupe delivers an emphatic 314 horsepower. This deep well of power is efficiently accessed through an 8-Speed Sport Direct Shift (SPDS) transmission that ensures smooth and highly responsive acceleration.
Sports driving exhilaration receives a phenomenal boost in the Lexus RC F Sport through performance enhancements that begin with finely-tuned suspension. Other features include Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS) and the Lexus Dynamic Handling System (LDH) that together optimise steering angle and stability for quick cornering.
The Lexus RC and RC F Sport embrace active and passive safety features to effectively protect their occupants and even those outside. One of these leading measures is Lane Departure Alert (LDA), which sounds and displays an alert when it senses a lane change without the turn signal on. In addition, Lane Change Assist with Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert offer assured support while shifting course and reversing.
ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) and EBD (Electronics Brake Force Control) ensure confident stoppage while TRC (Traction Control System) and EPS (Electric Power Steering) keep the sports coupe on track with the help of VDIM (Vehicle Dynamic Management). Using millimetre-wave radar, a Pre-crash safety system activates brake assist and may even operate brakes, while tightening seatbelts, if it detects an impending collision.
