If it is, it's a cool way to go about this.this has got to be a subtle bit of marketing we've now seen 3 different shades of F-Sport running around pre release...
It could just be people from lexus, engineers that drive around the pre-production models to find out any issues, some do this for thousands of miles with multiple vehicles.I'm a big fan of the taillights, and I like the way that they use the Lexus 'L' shape.
Who are these lucky guys who get to ride around in an RC-F before anyone else gets their hands on them? Do they work for Lexus, are they auto journalists?
I could see how this is subtle marketing. If they were still trying to keep things secret they wouldn't have the RC-F driving around with absolutely no camouflage on so casually.
that will be interesting, RC seems like it's heavier and could be a bit of a boat while the IS-F is lighter and packs more power. I think the IS-F will beat it just off of weight to power ratiocan't wait to see the track comparos of the RC vs the ISF
I agree, all they need to do it paint that carbon hood matching the rest of the body and while they are at might as well make carbon doors and trunk.Carbon fiber trim for the RC F will be the lightest of them all. That's the model that I want to see racing on the track.
Oh of course.well the carbon fiber trim is just the interior trim pieces
you are saving like 1lb at best.
You just stirred up an old arguement of which one is really lighter aluminum or carbon. Let's not get in to the whole cost because obviously we know which one will cost an arm and a leg.oh right
yes that would be a bit lighter
though i think the regular one is aluminum so its not that heavy either.
