Spotted: Lexus RC F Coupe shows off its brand new Solar Flare paint finish

Article by Andrew Christian, on July 7, 2014

Lexus started a contest on its Facebook page where it asked its fans to choose a name for a new orange colour that will be offered on the brand new RC F Coupe. Back in June, the contest ended and the new orange colour got a name: Solar Flare. Still, the new Solar Flame colour was shown only in an official photo made in the studio and we didn’t actually see the real thing.

Until today, when AutoGuide revealed the first photos with the new RC F Coupe dressed in its Solar Flame coat. We must admit that the real thing looks better than expected and underlines the aggressive design lines of the RC F Coupe.

In addition, the vehicle seen in the photos features a carbon fiber roof as well as a carbon fiber rear spoiler. For those who still don’t know, the Lexus RC F Coupe is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine that delivers 450 hp and more than 383 lb-ft of torque.

The engine is bolted to an eight-speed Sports Direct Shift (SPDS) transmission that sends the power to the rear wheels. According to Lexus, the RC F Coupe will be faster than the IS-F, which accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.6 seconds.

RC F Coupe promises a top speed electronically limited at 270 km/h or 168 mph.
