The 2015 Lexus RC F Coupe just got more interesting today at the 2014 SEMA Show thanks to Gordon Ting and Beyond Marketing. As you can see from the photos, the RC F Coupe features custom Evasive Motorsport carbon fiber front lip and splitter as well as side diffuser, but also brand new Yokohama Advan Wheels AVS F50 wrapped in Yokohama Advan Sport tires.
Behind the wheels, there are upgraded Brembo Performance brakes with 6 piston monoblock calipers on the front.
In addition, the vehicle gets Tein mono sport coilovers, a new Greedy Prototype Supreme SP exhaust system, a Greedy Prototype high performance intake kit and Motul performance engine oil.
Other performance upgrades are the custom front tower bar, custom rear tower bar and custom lower reinforcement braces and a Nitrous Express 100-shot wet nitrous system. Inside, there are new Sparco carbon fiber reclinable seats with custom re-upholstered inserts.
In terms of dimensions, the new Lexus RC F measures 4,705 mm in length, 1,845 mm in width and 1,390 mm in height. Its characteristic flared and laser-brazed wheel arches are wider by 5 mm than the RC. It is also 10 mm longer (thanks to the packaging of its rear aerodynamic devices) and 5 mm lower than the RC. The new RC F has a wheelbase of 2,730 mm, the same as the RC.
Lexus made sure that each styling elements of the RC F comes with an aerodynamic advantage. For instance, the Lexus signature spindle grille -- featuring a graduated mesh pattern -- flows to an aerodynamic treatment across the bonnet. Meanwhile, oil coolers sandwich the cooling ducts within the RC F grille, while a large L-shaped cooling outlet at the rear of the front wing offers both cooling and aerodynamic function while expressing dynamism.
Likewise, the bonnet of the RC F has been raised to both accommodate and highlight the V8 engine while a centrally located meshed scoop delivers further cooling and aerodynamic functions. Meanwhile, a continuous flow from the bonnet and front wing through to the beltline helps highlight the design’s crouching nature. The new Lexus RC F also features aerodynamic spats and aids along its full length.
Lexus also designed the corners of rear bumper to maximize for air flow, thereby contributing to the effect of the F four-link active rear wing, an RC F-unique technology derived from LFA. The RC F also has fins at the bottom edge of the rear bumper that could channel airflow underneath.
The new RC F features stacked dual exhausts that have been tuned to deliver optimal sound effect. It also comes with a CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) kit, which was developed for the LFA and IS F CCS-R race car.
