The brand new Lexus RC F Coupe has been officially unveiled ahead of its public debut scheduled for the 2014 NAIAS, in Detroit, which will open its gats next week.
Following a series of teasers and spy shots, the Lexus RC F Coupe is finally being placed into the spotlights in an official way, with the carmaker pulling the wraps off its body. The model in question is getting an aerodynamic body kit which is making it stand out from a crowd thanks to its new front and rear aggressive bumpers, revised side skirts, ventilated front fenders, bulging hood, different front grille and some other tweaks.
Toyota’s luxury brand says that the new RC F is now riding on 19-inch forged aluminum wheels, which will become available for order soon in three different designs. If you’re a carbon fiber fan, you should know that the Lexus RC F Coupe can also get an active rear spoiler, made from this lightweight material, which will deploy at approximately 80 km/h (50 mph) and it will retract at less than 40 km/h (25 mph). The cabin of the new Lexus vehicle has been carried over from the standard car, but it has received the leather wrapped sport seats, the new instrument cluster, the alloy pedals and some other minor tweaks.
As far as the engine goes, the Lexus RC F Coupe is getting a 5.0 liter V8 unit under its hood, which is producing a total output of 460 BHP (343 kW). Thanks to this figure, the model in question can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.5 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph). Additional details on the RC F Coupe are limited for the moment and will be announced during the 2014 Detroit Motor Show.
