The 2015 Lexus RC 350 configurator is now up and running for those willing to pay at least the $42,790 starting price.

For this money you will be getting the rear-wheel drive version while the AWD model kicks off at $45,025. Both of them are powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine developing 306 bhp (228 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 277 lb-ft (375 Nm) at 4,800 rpm delivered to the road through an eight-speed automatic gearbox (six-speed for AWD). The rear-wheel drive version does the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint in 5.8 seconds and tops out at 143 mph (230 km/h).

There are nine exterior paints to choose from and depending on selection Lexus is providing up to eight interior color themes while at an additional cost buyers can add the F SPORT package, 19-inch wheels, Navigation System & Luxury packages, LED fog lamps, 835-watt 17-speaker Mark Levinson sound system and park assist system.

Lexus hasn't uploaded the 2015 RC F configurator yet but we already know the model is priced from $62,400. Available exclusively with a rear-wheel drive layout, the hotter version is motivated by a V8 5.0-liter engine producing 467 bhp (348 kW) at 7,100 rpm and 389 lb-ft (527 Nm) at 4,800 rpm. It will do the sprint in 4.4 seconds before reaching a top speed of 167 mph (269 km/h).
