The Lexus RC borrows some details from the LF-LC and LF-CC prototypes, like the triangular LED headlamps framing the widest and lowest spindle grille ever fitted to one of the lineup.

At the back, the sharp thin design of the lamps converge into the symbolic L-shape that combines with the characteristic trapezoidal shape, giving the overall feeling of a “planted” vehicle. Sportiness is also enhanced by the side vents and the parallelogram-shaped chrome exhausts.

The beautifully balanced silhouette of the RC is accompanied by two set of available rims - a deeply sculpted 10-spoke 19-inch or muscular five-spoke 18-inch aluminum wheels finished with black or platinum centre caps.

Stepping inside, you’ll immediately feel surrounded by the same well-crafted and good-equipped interior, with an overall shape inspired by the LFA model. The driver’s cockpit is split into operational and display areas, with the upper zone housing the instrument cluster and a 7-inch infotainment screen, while the lower zone, including the bottom half of the central console flowing between the two seats integrates the climate, radio controls and the new Lexus’ first Remote Touch Interface.

More interesting features are represented by the seats which use an integrated foaming construction method like the racing seats moldings and the first ever lightning package with illumination reflecting upwards instead of downwards.

The Lexus RC will come with two engine options, a 3.5-liter V6 for the RC 350 and a 2.5-liter hybrid for the RC 300h.

Until further details from its official unveil at the Tokyo Motor Show on 20th November, take a look at its beautiful shapes in the photos bellow, all but the upper grille’s part which makes no sense, reminding of a 2012 RX model.
