Lexus wants you to give a name for this new orange color of the RC F Coupe

Article by Christian A., on May 8, 2014

Just like Chrysler did with the special blue color developed for the SRT Viper, Lexus wants you to name the new orange colour that will be offered for the RC F Coupe. People already started to name the new colour and we already have Fiery Orange/Sunset, Orange Crush, Perihelion Orange, Molten Bronze, Sunburst or Radiant Fire.

If you believe that you have a better idea, why don’t you head over to company’s Facebook page and write your idea there and maybe, who knows, you will be the lucky winner. Lexus didn’t say what you will win or if it will offer a prize for the lucky person who has the best idea to name that colour, but you will definitely not going to win a brand new Lexus RC F Coupe.

That’s too bad, because the brand new sports car 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 delivers the power to the rear wheels.

The RC F Coupe can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) faster than the IS F (4.6 seconds), while top speed will be electronically limited at 270 km/h or 168 mph.

Moreover, the new coupe comes with a striking design dominated by the signature spindle grille with a subtle F-mesh pattern on the lower half that underlines the power generated by the big V8 engine.

Lexus revealed that the RC F is meant for owners to experience great driving pleasure whether on the road or on the racing circuit. Inspired by the RC, the RC F is distinguished easily by the resolutely strong design interpretations in both a dynamic and cosmetic manner. Since the RC F is able to offer a higher horsepower, it was therefore important to complement it with a more thorough aerodynamic package.

This includes having wider wheels and tires and a brake and suspension system that are both purposely designed. There is an active rear wing as well and a distinct style that is not only surprising but even functional. Compared to the RC, the RC F is longer by 10 mm at 4,705 mm. This is due to the packaging of the aerodynamic devices on the rear end. Because the RC F has the uniquely flared, as well as laser-brazed, wheel arches, it has a width of 1,845 mm, 5 mm wider than the RC.

Finally, the RC F is lower by 5 mm at 1,390 mm. The wheelbase of the RC F is the same as that of the RC measuring 2,730 mm. Adding in the electronically enhanced driveline, which is founded on the brand’s Vehicle Dynamic Integrated Management (VDIM), amateur drivers are able to experience the limits only attained in the past by trained professionals. Further, these systems are able to offer higher levels of safety.
