The new Lexus RC and RC F Coupes to debut in Geneva

Lexus’s presentation at the 2014 Geneva motor show will be led by European debuts for the new RC coupe and high-performance RC F and world-first reveals of the RC F Sport and RC F GT3 racing concept.

The new Lexus RC and RC F Coupes to debut in Geneva 4The Lexus RC F will be seen for the first time in Europe at the Geneva motor show (from 4 March), ahead of going on sale this autumn. It’s powered by a new 5.0-litre engine that’s expected to deliver well in excess of 450bhp and more than 520Nm of torque, making this the most powerful V8 performance car Lexus has yet developed. To harness this power efficiently, the RC F combines a newly calibrated 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. For the first time in a Lexus, the RC F’s engine runs on the Atkinson cycle at cruising speed, for better fuel economy, switching to the Otto cycle at higher revs to deliver outstanding performance.
