Lexus Rc F Sport To Debut At Geneva Motor Show

Click here to start your search. Lexus has announced that they'll be unveiling the 2015 RC 350 F Sport at next month's Geneva Motor Show, with the model meant to be positioned between the base RC 350 Coupe and the performance-oriented RC F. The automaker is promising that the RC F Sport will offer enhanced driving dynamics as well as exclusive exterior styling cues which will set it apart from the base version of the car. However, they're not making promises about the performance of its 450-hp performance of its 450-hp RC F sibling, which will be positioned at the top of the range. That means that the 3.5-liter V6 coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission is likely to stick around in the midrange F Sport version, but 314 hp in a car this size means there will still be plenty of opportunity for the coupe to stretch its legs. It's easy to forget now, but these were V8 performance sedan power figures not that long ago. At the top of the range will be the RC F , which will feature a 5.0-liter V8 making 450-hp and just north of 383 lb-ft of torque. The rear-wheel drive performance coupe will offer features including an active spoiler, more aggressive styling, a torque-vectoring rear differential and larger wheels. Down the line, Lexus is expected to debut a hybrid version of the RC coupe dubbed RC 300h, which will couple a 2.5-liter inline-four making 176 hp with an electric motor. The RC 300h will use a continuously variable transmission, and will be offered around the same time as the other RC variants in the summer of 2014. Lexus will fully reveal this latest addition to the RC lineup in addition to the RC F GT3 Racing Concept on March 4 in Geneva, and we'll be there to bring you the latest.
