not much can be deduced from these photos, but Lexus has dropped the fact that 19-inch wheels are on display, wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires. They say some of the body panels are carbon fiber and stopping power is ensured by Brembo.
We looked at the headlights of all the Lexus small and medium sedans (even made mugshots below) and we can conclude these lights belong to the new RC sports coupe, a rival to the 4 Series we recently tested.
The number of doors and the somewhat bold design are the only similarities between the M4 and RC F. That's because Lexus is sticking to older technology. Power will come from a 5-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine, while the Germans will offer a 3-liter multi-turbo with slightly less power, about 430 hp.
Should that bother us? Well no, not if the IS 350 is anything to go by. The auto industry desperately needs a fast coupe with good reliability and bold looks. Don't believe us? Just watch our video of the RC F testing at the Nurburgring and tell what you think.
