It has emerged that the Lexus RC F and the RC Coupe will be showcased at the fast approaching 2014 Geneva Motor Show next month and here are some details of the upcoming models from Toyota’s premium brand.
The Lexus RC F will go on sale in Europe in autumns this year and is powered by a new 5.0-litre V8 engine that’s has a max power of more than 450bhp and peak torque of more than 520Nm. The engine will come mated to an eight-speed transmission with a world-first installation of a Torque Vectoring Differential in a front engine/rear-wheel drive sports coupe. This enhancees traction and control to secure exceptional handling and performance. The RC F’s engine runs on the Atkinson cycle at cruising speed, for better fuel economy, and switches to Otto cycle at higher revs for outright performance. The F Sport version of the Lexus RC coupe will also be dislayed at the upcoming motor show. This model will benefit from revised driving dynamics and will have some exterior and interior upgrades.
The unveiling of the new RC F GT3 concept will also take place at Geneva. The new model will hint at the brand’s intention to engineer a car for teams racing in GT3 competition.
