Lexus has just released the second official teaser image of the Lexus RC F Coupe set to debut at the Detroit Motor Show 2014 next month. As with the first teaser shot, not much is revealed except for its brand new hood featuring a larger hood scoop.
As it stands, very few details about the upcoming Lexus RC F Coupe are known. However, if Lexus stays true to form, it will simply have more aggressive body panels than the standard RC Coupe released just prior to the L.A. Auto Show. Lexus however, is promising that it will have twice the roar of the IS F!
Powering the 2015 Lexus RC F will be a 5.0-liter V8 engine producing 455 hp at 6,800 rpm and 401 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm. To help the Lexus RC F clear Euro-6 emissions regulations, Lexus will employ cylinder deactivation technology where four-cylinders will be shut down during highway driving. Mated to this 455 hp V8 engine will be an eight-speed automated manual transmission featuring paddle shifters and three different driving modes: Normal, Sport and Snow.
While speaking with Australian publication Drive last month, Lexus IS chief engineer Junichi Furuyama revealed that the Lexus RC F will feature different styling to the regular RC coupe. Additionally, Furuyama revealed that the design of the standard Lexus RC coupe is not entirely production ready and still needs some refining.
