We've long known it was coming, but today is the day that Toyota and Lexus officially unveiled the RC200t.
Nothing much changes under the skin, Lexus is simply offering you the choice now between the 3.5L V6 and the 2.0L Turbo Inline 4, power still makes it to the ground via an 8 speed transmission.
Same as the RC350, the RC200t will be made available in F Sport trim, wich features the same Torsen LSD rear end, same body kit. Orange calipers and red leather interior is available as optional equipment.
The RC200t's 245 PS and 350 Nm of torque hustle the coupe to 62 mph in 7.5 seconds, slower then the NX200t featuring the same engine. Lexus says it should return 25 mpg US.
Pricing outside of Japan reamins unavailable, however it is 10% cheaper then the RC350, something that should translate to NA and Europe eventually.
