Just like Lexus promised at the beginning of the month, the all-new 2014 RC Coupe has been introduced today at the Tokyo Motor Show.
Lexus' styling department looked over some photos of the LF-LC and LF-CC concepts when they designed the new RC which looks extremely sharp and fresh with its contoured shape and the wide spindle grille. It comes with triangular LED headlights and has received standard 18-inch five-spoke alloys or optional 19-inch ten-spoke rims.
It will be the first Lexus to boast a lightning package which will reflect the illumination upwards rather than downwards. The instrument panel and 7-inch navigation screen are hosted in the upper section of the dashboard, while the layered center console is home to the incorporated Remote Touch Interface, another premiere in a car wearing the Lexus badge.
The RC will be available as a "350" model equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine, as well as a more frugal "300h" version fitted with a 2.5-liter conventional engine collaborating with an electric motor.
The physical dimensions of the all-new Lexus RC stand at 4639mm length, 1838m width and 1394mm height, with a wheelbase stretching at 2730mm. The car has enough interior room to accommodate four people staying on newly developed seats that have an integrated construction method providing improved support and comfort.
More details will be provided closer to the car's 2014 launch.
