Who says Lexus can be classy and economical, but not sexy? The Japanese noble daughter of the Toyota Group has presented at the current Toyota Motor Show (23.11.-1.12.13) a markedly emotional two-door coupe.
Lexus RC - sexy two-door from Japan
At 4.7 meters, the RC will compete in the BMW 4 Series and Audi A4 class. Only with significantly more emotions in the design. The sharpened interpretation of the Diablo grill alone ensures that the RC is clearly seen as a premium coupe with serious sporting demands.
Two engines to start
A 3.5 liter V6 petrol engine with 318 hp and an eight-speed automatic takes over the role of the top model. As usual with Toyota / Lexus, the model is of course also available in an ecologically correct version as a “hybrid”.
Since the RC stands on a floor assembly with the IS, its hybrid drive is also used. A driving report to IS 300h can be found here in the blog .
But these two engines will not be the end of the flagpole, if you believe the rumors, then soon follows an RC-F variant with potent V8 engine and significantly more than 400 PS.
