Lexus announces all-new RC coupe for Tokyo Auto Show

Lexus will host the world premiere of the all-new RC coupe at the upcoming Tokyo Auto Show, including the RC 350 (3.5L V6) and RC 300h (2.5L hybrid).

This two-door concept sports the widest and lowest application of the brand's signature spindle grille design, while the triangular headlights evoke the sporty characteristics of the LF-LC. At low beam, the lights adopt an L-shaped pattern as an expression of the Lexus identity. Same thing for the taillights, by the way.

The Lexus RC rides on either deeply sculpted, 10-spoke 19” wheels or muscular, five-spoke 18” wheels. Red is used for the body to emphasize the “sexy” attributes of the car, the company says.

Inside, the Lexus RC loves contrast, both in terms of colours and materials. Genuine shimamoku wood accents, a 7” navigation display, and a new Remote Touch interface also catch the attention. What's more, the seats utilize an integrated foaming construction method -- much like the molding of racing seats -- to ensure optimum comfort and support.
