Lexus RC F Coupe gets a new Solar Flare orange colour as contest ends

Article by Christian A., on June 17, 2014

Back in May, Lexus launched a contest for its fans in order to find a name for its new orange colour that will be offered for the RC F Coupe. Today, that contest ended and the name of the new colour is ‘Solar Flare’. According to Lexus, the ‘Solar Flare’ name was submitted by five different persons on its Facebook page.

The people who submitted the comments were Peter Robert Shaumburg Fodor, Paul Britt, Joe Ettwein, Matt Frenchy and Krisstian Allen. So, if you want to buy a Lexus RC F Coupe featuring a Solar Flare paint finish you will also get the mighty 5.0-liter V8 engine that generates 450 hp and more than 383 lb-ft of torque.

Using an eight-speed Sports Direct Shift (SPDS) transmission, the power is delivered to the rear wheels. According to Lexus, the RC F Coupe will be faster than the IS F, which was able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.6 seconds, while top speed will be electronically limited at 270 km/h or 168 mph.

Explaining the choice, Richard said: “We were impressed by the huge response and the creativity shown by our Facebook fans, who took up the challenge with enthusiasm. Solar Flare was chosen as we think it captures the power and excitement of the RC F, as well as the impact of the paint finish itself.”
