2014 Lexus RC 350 / RC 300h: first details and photos revealed

Article by Christian A., on November 4, 2013

Earlier today we showed you the first photos with the all-new 2014 Lexus RC Coupe but in the meantime, the Japanese manufacturer also released the first details of its new model. Set to make its world debut on November 20 at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, the new Lexus will debut in Japan in two versions: the RC 350 and the RC 300h.

The Lexus RC 350 will use a 3.5-liter V6, while the RC 300h will get the 2.5-liter engine. As you can see from the photos, the Lexus RC Coupe is inspired by the LF-LC Concept and comes with triangular headlamps and unique three-lamp LED design. The lamps adopt an L-shaped pattern at low beam.

Moreover, we find deeply sculpted 10-spoke 19-inch wheels, but Lexus will also offer a five-spoke 18-inch set. Inside, we find a high contrast interior trim, which includes a new tone called Clove while the genuine shimamoku wood highlights the design.

The 2014 Lexus RC Coupe is 4,693 mm long, has a width of 1,838 mm and a height of 1.394. A range-topping RC F is also expected as Lexus already trademarked the “RC F” moniker. This model will use a 5.0-liter V8 engine with 455 hp and 543 Nm (401 lb-ft) of torque. [source: Lexus]
