Here is the 2015 Lexus RC 350 F Sport on display at the Geneva Motor Show. This model slots between the base RC 350 and the 450-plus-horsepower RC F.
The RC 350 F SPort runs on the same 3.5-liter V6 engine that the regular RC 350 runs on. It produces 306 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque.
Where the RC350 F Sport differs from the regular model is the inclusion of Lexus' Adaptive Variable Suspension, which electronically adjusts the damping on each wheel based on road conditions, speeds and vehicle body motion. It also sports a model specific version of Lexus' trademarked spindle grille with mesh inserts, a "sprinkling" of F Sport emblems and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Lexus will be introducing another sportscar at the Geneva Motor Showm the Lexus RC F GT3.
Compared to the Lexus RC F, the GT3 is lower and wider. The wide body kit adds flared fenders, a lip spoiler, side skirts and a massive air diffuser at the back. Overall, the RC F GT3 is 2,000 mm wide, 1,270 mm high and 4,705 mm long, having a 2,730 mm wheelbase.
Curious about the RC F GT3's performance? Well, the vehicle will weigh only 1,250 kg, and it is powered by a tuned RC F V8 engine that will make over 540 hp. Notice that there is no gear shift in the center of the vehicle, all the shifting is done with paddle shifters.
While I don't prioritize tech over driving pleasure, I do like my tech (in a tech industry). Very anxious to learn more about this updated system in the RC Coupe. I also hope the issues the IS early adopters are having get resolved in the RC's systems.
Sure the Lexus RC F is amazing. With a new 5-liter V8 engine and aggressive styling, it really gets the blood pumping. Lexus realizes that people want something in between the RC F and the V6-powered RS 350, and that vehicle would be the RC 350 F Sport, debuting at the Geneva Motor Show on March 4th.
Power for the RC 350 F Sport will come from the same 3.5-liter V6 that is found in the RS 350, but it will see changes in suspension, steering and braking. All that should make for enhanced driving dynamics.
