We already know that Lexus is working on a new car based on the LF-CC Concept, which was unveiled at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, right? Well, today we found out some more about Lexus’ upcoming coupe. According to Autonews, the new replacement for the IS coupe will be revealed in November at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show and will be called RC.

The Lexus RC will hit the United States dealerships in late 2014 as a 2015 model year. Prototype versions of the new car were already spotted during track testing in Germany and according to unknown sources we do know that the RC will use a 3.5-liter, 306-hp V-6 engine (RC350), same as the IS and GS sedans.

A hybrid version of the Lexus RC will also be offered in Japan and Europe but unfortunately the Japanese company will not bring it in the United States.

Regarding the high-performance version RC-F, this model will be unveiled in January at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. Sources confirmed the fact that the RC-F will be powered by a V8 engine, delivering 460 hp. This new model will take on the upcoming Bmw M4 coupe, which will be powered by a turbo-six engine developing 450 hp.
