Article by Christian A., on June 20, 2014

The all-new 2015 Lexus RC F Coupe will make its first UK appearance next weekend at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed (26-29 June). According to the official press release, the RC F Coupe will make speed runs during the ‘first glance’ sessions on the Goodwood’s hill course.

Lexus RC F Coupe will have its market launch at the end of the year and for those who don’t know, it will use a 5.0-liter, 32-valve engine that generates more than 450 bhp (335 kW) and 520 Nm of torque.

The engine will be bolted to a fuel-efficient 8-speed Sports Direct Shift, intelligent electronically controlled automatic transmission, while power will be delivered to the rear wheels.

We don’t have any details regarding the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), but we do know that the speed will be electronically limited at 168 mph or 270 km/h.

The RC F Coupe will offer three operating modes – standard, slalom and track – and the driver will be able to adjust the system to get the optimum degree of traction and control.

Regarding the design, the Lexus RC F Coupe comes with the well-known spindle grille and it is directly inspired by the LFA supercar, featuring bonnet air outlets and front cooling ducts, as well as carbon fiber elements including the roof, bonnet and active rear wing.
