The 2014 North American International Auto Show draws near, and announcements are starting to trickle out from all of the auto makers. Lexus will be featuring a F version of their RC concept that they debuted last year. Sporting the dark blue that was available on the IS F, the RC F has a extremely muscular body and some special exterior touches that make it look the part to take on the BMW M4 and Audi’s RS5.
The RC F will feature the most powerful V8 engine ever produced by Lexus, and to keep that power planted to the road, many of the wings and body panels are functional aerodynamically. In the rear, there is a spoiler that pops up when the vehicle reaches 50 mph, and retracts when the RC F slows to 25 mph.
The interior will also be more aggressive than the standard RC, featuring high back seats, a special steering wheel, and strategically mounted paddle shifters for the transmission. The instrument cluster will resemble what is currently available on the IS F-Sport, which takes design cues from the LF A supercar.
The RC F, along with all pertinent details, will be made available during the NAIAS next week, and Auto Geeks will be on-hand to bring you the scoop. We’re hopeful that the grille on this vehicle looks better in person, but it is following the new design language for Lexus’ high-performance automobiles.
