2014 Detroit Auto Show Preview: 2015 Lexus RC F Coupe leaks out onto the Web

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 8, 2014

The 2014 Detroit Auto Show is preparing to open its doors next week but the new cars appeared already on the Web. The latest one is the 2015 Lexus RC F Coupe, the high-performance version of the RC Coupe. Although we don’t have any official info, we do know that the new coupe is going to use a 5.0-liter V8 engine rated at 460 hp (343 kW) and will be capable to accelerate from o to 100 km/h in around 4.5 seconds, with a top speed electronically limited at 300 km/h or 186 mph.

In terms of design, we admit that the 2015 Lexus RC F Coupe looks aggressive thanks to the new bodykit consisting of a new front bumper, front fenders, side sills, and the rear bumper with integrated air diffuser and exhaust system inspired by the IS-F. Moreover, we find a carbon fiber roof and a new set of multi-spoke alloy wheels.

Inside, we expected to see a design reflecting the exterior but we didn’t. Still, don’t get us wrong, we do like it, especially the leather sport seats, carbon fiber trim and the multifunction steering wheel. More details to be revealed next week, at the 2014 North American International Auto Show!
