RC-F rendered on Vossen Precision Series. This is officially the first modified RC-F unofficially of course ;)





BTW Vossen is a sponsor of Lexus Enthusiast and Mike Vossen had this to say in the comments:

Thank you everyone, we worked on this last week and wanted to elevate the sport luxury feel of the car. We envision it lowered on RS-R coilovers and wider wheels, I'm thinking a 21x9.5 wheel up front and a 21x12 in the rear. I can say Lexon is fast at work on concepts for a bodykit.
you hear that, body kit... hehehhhhh

That looks pretty sublime. I am not sure I would get this color combo though. I would go with a black body and gold rims, or a white body with black rims. Those wheels look like they barely fit in the wheel wells now.

as much as i don't like most of vossens wheels, i have to say this doesn't look too bad. the wheel design seems to suit the RC's overall design, also stance is on point which is easy to do in a rendering!

Not everyone will want to get a wheel setup that will get them the most performance out of the car possible.
yea but then its kind of useless to have a performance car, no? I just dont get why someone would buy a fire breathing v8 coupe and then neuter it... Just buy a base RC...

Why are these wheels so bad for performance? I can see them not adding anything, but do they take away from the performance of the RC350?

because they are massive and likely too heavy

there is also like no tire on that wheel. not sure if that is that great for performance.

yea nailed it. As for the tire all you have to do is take one glance at any kind of racing machine and you'll notice they have relatively tall sidewalls

see the RC-F GT500

tell that to the thousands of people who buy high end sports cars and supercars and put wheels on them that dont complement it's performance.

not every single car built for performance will get driven in ways it was intended to.

yea but why handicap yourself right out of the gate. You may not EVER get near the vehicles limits but why would you want to inhibit those limits instead of accentuating them?

because you're on roads that don't allow you to go that fast safely and without going to jail for it.
if you're going to go slow, might as well look good while doing it
