Lexus is pleased to announce pricing for the all-new, highly anticipated and exhilarating coupes - the MY15 RC 350 and RC F. The public announcement is scheduled for today at 11:00 pm Eastern Time (8:00 pm Pacific Time). The RC will go on sale starting in late October, with RC F sales following in early November. For Lexus Western Area, this timing will depend on actual wholesale availability and following an initial hard launch of one per Dealer.

Lexus also announces select vehicle MSRPs and product enhancements for MY15 GS and ES Series. The GS and ES public pricing announcement will coincide with RC and RC F. Please see below for a Lexus Price Summary of all available MY15 MSRPs.

The RC 350 will launch with a base MSRP of $42,790* for RWD ($45,025 for AWD). This incredible pricing for our all-new coupe includes a host of standard and exciting new features both inside and out. It also places RC in a superior position against its comparable German competitors, such as the Mercedes-Benz C350 Coupe and the BMW 435i.

At first glance, the RC clearly demonstrates its aggressive attitude. It features a new coupe body style that is built on a unique platform with a wide and low stance centered on providing the driving dynamics one would expect from a sporty coupe. Its bold face is accentuated by a new interpretation of the Lexus spindle grille and full LED headlamps and Daytime Running Lights. The aggressive styling flows throughout the body, including the standard 18” wheels, large side rocker panels and sculpted rear view. The 3.5L V6 with 306 hp delivers on its performance promise. The RC also comes standard with Drive Mode Select and paddle shifters to further enhance driver engagement.

The RC interior features a host of luxury appointments to further its appeal, which includes electrostatic temperature controls, dual zone air climate control, Display Audio, 10-speaker Lexus Premium Audio, backup monitor with dynamic gridlines, perforated NuLuxe sport seating, genuine wood trim, and ambient interior lighting. The racing-inspired seating position and more aggressively bolstered front seats also ensure driver confidence. Despite its coupe demeanor, RC also allows for versatility with its standard 60/40 split folding rear seat.

Drivers will further appreciate the advanced technology features in the RC, including the available Navigation system which debuts the new remote touchpad that operates much like a smartphone or tablet. All RCs will also come with a complimentary one-year subscription for the new Lexus Enform Remote system. Lexus Enform Remote enables the driver to remotely start the engine, lock and unlock doors, check the fuel level, find the vehicle’s location, and includes a guest driver monitor feature.

RC will offer an exciting F SPORT package available for both RWD and AWD models. The package offers a unique full-mesh grille and front bumper, unique 19” split 10-spoke wheels with wider tires, bolstered front sport seats with heating and ventilation, and F Sport-tuned suspension with AVS and Sport S+ drive mode. All F SPORT models will also feature the attention-grabbing center-mounted tachometer with moving bezel adopted directly from the LFA.

The new RC was designed and built to increase the appeal to the next generation of luxury drivers and bolster Lexus’ performance image. In both appearance and driving dynamics, the RC provides a sexy, fresh take on the coupe and is sure to make a competitive dent in the coupe segments.

I just can't wait to see sales numbers to see how it does when compared to the 4 series.

I don't expect it to actually outsell the 4-series though.
Same here, but I do expect it to perform well.
I'm more interested in seeing how it sells when compared to the future Infiniti q60 coupe.

what are they supposed to be doing for the next generation model?
I heard it's supposed to take on more Z car styling
Q60 huh Theres a lot o buzz right now about it. It would be a heart breaker if the q60 looks exactly like a q50 but in coupe form. Imagine that.
