The Lexus RC F Coupe has been officially unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show 2014. As the name suggests, it is a Coupé and it goes head to head with the new BMW M4 also being displayed at the same show! We took a closer look at the very impressive dark blue car at the Lexus stand.
The F performance model, based on the RC coupe, gets its roar from more than 450 horsepower and more than 383 pound-feet of torque all courtesy of an all-new 5.0-liter 32-valve V8 engine that will provide increased maximum power at higher engine rpm than previously possible.
This engine is the most powerful V8 engine the Japanese marque has ever constructed. Lexus say that the car should weigh in at under 1,800 kilograms. The RC F will be limited to a top speed of 270 km/h. It is the first challenge for the new BMW M4 and we think it looks pretty stunning!
At the front the signature Lexus spindle grille, featuring a subtle F-pattern on the lower half, dominates the front of the RC F from the bottom of the hood to the lower lip. Moving to the rear the RC F features an available speed-sensitive active rear spoiler that is inspired by the LF-A hyper car.
