Today Lexus released photos of the all-new and very aggressive RC Concept in
advance of the world premiere. The RC line brings to life the luxury marque's
focus on emotional appeal through a dynamic and alluring two-door coupe. It has
been developed to raise the brand's profile with a broader audience and
Two RC models will be displayed at the Tokyo Motor Show on November 20th: the RC 350 with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, and the RC 300h hybrid with a 2.5-liter engine.
RC Concept's Exterior Design
Lexus designers have infused the RC design with deeply contoured lines never before seen in the Lexus line-up. They have integrated the widest and lowest application yet seen of the Lexus spindle grille.
Triangular headlamps evoke the sporty characteristics of the LF-LC styling while concept vehicle inspiration is evident in the unique three-lamp LED design. At low beam, the lamps adopt an L-shaped pattern as an expression of the Lexus identity. The sharp, thin design of the rear combination lamps adopts the symbolic Lexus L-shaped motif.
RC's aluminum wheels continue the concept-to-production design philosophy with two available combinations - a deeply sculpted 10-spoke 19-inch wheel or a muscular five-spoke 18-inch version, each precision-machined and finished with elegant black and platinum center caps.
A new Lexus painting process that uses multiple layers of clear and deeper-colored coating brings the RC coupe to life with a brighter and more contrasting shade, especially on the racy red exterior.
