Default Lexus RC F Coupe puts on a brave face for Detroit

Lexus RC F Redefines the Daily Commute with Asphalt-Grinding
Performance and Bold Head-Turning Design

-Global Premiere of RC F Coupe at North American International Auto
Show on Jan. 14
-Aggressive Design Cues Demonstrate Performance Potential
-Aerodynamic Wings and Scoops Illustrate Uncompromising Grit

TORRANCE, Calif. – Jan. 8, 2014 – Giving new meaning to "back to
the grind," the daily
commute is now transformed in to a day at the track with the all-new
Lexus RC F. The RC F coupe
is styled with fins, ducts and scoops to support the most power V8
performance car ever
developed by Lexus.

Based on the spectacular all-new RC coupe that was revealed at the
Tokyo Motor Show
last November, the RC F has wider wheels and tires, an active rear
wing, air scoops, cooling ducts
and carbon fiber components, each delivering uncompromising grit to
the driving experience.

Design Exterior
The signature Lexus spindle grille, featuring a single F-pattern,
dominates the front of the
RC F from the bottom of the hood to the lower lip. The hood is higher
than that of the RC to
accommodate the larger V8 engine and create the powerful flared
profile suited to an F model.
Ducts beneath the front bumper, fenders, and strategically-placed
aerodynamic stabilizing fins
create a stance which further identifies the F model.

Air outlets at the rear of the front fender form the shape of an L
when they merge with side
sill extensions, while stacked trapezoidal quad-outlet tailpipes at
the rear add further aggression.
Taking design cues from the Lexus LFA supercar, the RC F features a
speed-sensitive active rear
spoiler. It enhances the coupe's lines at standstill and deploys from
the RC F's deck at approximately 50 mph and retracts when the speed is
less than 25 mph. The wing helps the RC F
maintain traction and stability at higher speeds.

Three variations of 10-spoke 19-inch forged aluminum wheels are
available, including two
machine polished designs and one design hand polished by a craftsman.

Design Interior
The striking cockpit-like interior of Lexus RC F complements the
aggressive exterior.
Unique components include the meters, steering wheel, seats,
ornamentation and pedals. The
instrument panel is dominated by a central meter which changes
according to the four selectable
driving modes. The information, color of the display and size of text
can be changed.

Occupant comfort is all important. RC F debuts a Lexus-first
elliptical cross-section thickgrip
steering wheel with optimum placement of paddle gear shifts. All-new
high back seats with an
embossed F on the headrests offer the driver and passenger an
exceptional performance fit. The
seats are available in a selection of five leather trims, each with
contrasting stitching.
Outstanding new L-shaped rubber slits in the brake and accelerator
pedals combine form
and function.
