Toyota has recently filed a trademark in the United States and Europe for the "RC F" nameplate.

This news comes after Lexus trademarked in Australia the "RC 350" moniker in November 2012. Both names could be related to production versions of the equally attractive LF-LC and LF-CC concepts showed by Lexus last year.

It will probably be a high-powered variant of a sports coupe given the "F" in the designation. Lexus has previously mentioned that some of LF-LC's design cues will be implemented in future models which makes us believe the RC-F will be a sleek and powerful coupe.
