Four-door version of the Lexus RC F Coupe expected sometime in 2016

Article by Christian A., on September 5, 2014

The 2015 Lexus RC F Coupe didn’t reach the dealerships yet but the Japanese manufacturer is already thinking on a new version. Apparently, Lexus is planning a four-door version of the RC F Coupe, which will use the same platform and engine. Expected sometime in 2016, this new model will be more practical but also cheaper than the coupe.

According to Autocar, a convertible version might also be offered. So, expect the four-foor RC F to be powered by the same 5.0-liter, 32-valve V8 engine that generates more than 450 hp (335 kW) and 520 Nm of torque.

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

Although there are no official details regarding the acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), we do know that the top speed is electronically limited at 168 mph or 270 km/h on the coupe version.
