Default Lexus RC 350 F Sport

Rumbling into the slot between the Lexus RC 350 Sport Coupe and the RC
F is this, the RC 350 F Sport. It looks like it can hold its own
against any other coupe at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

It's a Trifecta! - F SPORT Completes All-New Lexus RC Coupe Line-up

- RC 350 F SPORT joins RC 350 and RC F for 2015 Model Year
- Adaptive Variable Suspension Adjusts Damping to Help Maximize
Agility
- 19-Inch Alloy Wheels Complement More Aggressive Exterior and
Interior Design Features

GENEVA - Feb. 28, 2014 – And F SPORT makes three. Driving enthusiasts,
get ready for more Lexus RC options from which to choose. When the
all-new model launches in the U.S. this fall the 2015 Lexus RC 350 F
SPORT will join the recently introduced RC 350 sport coupe and RC F
performance model.

The RC 350 F SPORT will make its world debut at the 2014 Geneva
International Motor Show.
The RC is a stand-alone model rather than a two-door derivative of a
sedan although it is built on the GS sedan platform. It has the same
width as GS and a shorter wheelbase than the IS sedan to help achieve
spirited handling and agility.

The RC 350 F SPORT, based on the RC 350, will feature exclusive design
elements and enhanced driving performance.

The F SPORT's dynamic upgrades include Adaptive Variable Suspension
(AVS) and the available Lexus Dynamic Handling (LDH) system. These
features provide drivers with an even more rewarding and engaging
driving experience.

Design
Readily identified by a model-specific "F" mesh design, the
RC 350 F SPORT features a further evolution of the Lexus spindle
grille.

The unique 19-inch F SPORT mesh alloy wheels feature machine-finish
and dark metallic paint.

The RC 350 F SPORT also inherits a descendant of the innovative LFA
driver's meter with a moving center ring, and an F SPORT perforated
leather steering wheel and shift knob. The interior design is
completed by Silver Performance trim, an F SPORT-exclusive Rioja Red
interior and seats with unique contrast stitching.

Driving Dynamics
Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) is part of the F SPORT package. In
response to driving operation, vehicle body motion and road surface
conditions, AVS automatically and independently adjusts the
performance of the damping at all four wheels. When the vehicle's
SPORT+ drive mode is selected, AVS changes to allow the driver to feel
improved body control and precise responses to steering input.

The suspension enhancements of the RC 350 F SPORT are complimented by
the available four-wheel steering benefits of the Lexus Dynamic
Handling (LDH) system. This leading edge platform technology offers
the integration of Dynamic Rear Steering (DRS) and Variable Gear Ratio
Steering (VGRS).

Monitoring vehicle speed, steering direction and driver inputs, the
system calculates the optimum angle for all four wheels. Using VGRS in
the front and DRS in the rear, the system can independently manage
both front and rear wheel steering angles to help improve turn-in
response, rear grip, vehicle control and overall agility when
cornering.

The LDH system monitors vehicle speed and yaw rate, steering angle and
speed, and lateral G to calculate the required rear wheel steering
input up to a maximum rear wheel angle of 2.0 degrees. The front and
rear wheels turn in opposite directions at lower speeds, and in the
same direction at higher speeds.

Lexus will introduce the RC 350 F SPORT at a press conference on March
4, at 8:45 a.m. Central European Time at Palexpo's hall 4, stand
number 4211.
