Performance-inspired RC coupe gets bespoke upgrades and retuned suspension.
Just days before its official debut, Lexus has introduced the latest variant of its RC coupe lineup in the form of the RC 350 F Sport that will slot in between the RC 350 and high-performance RC F. The new model doesn't boast any power upgrades, but an enhanced driving experience is provided via adaptive suspension damping, custom ten-spoke design 19-inch alloys and the Lexus Dynamic Handling package.
By adjusting systems such as suspension, steering, wheel angle and stability, based on vehicle speed, driver inputs and steering direction, the system improves grip, vehicle control, turn-in response and cornering agility. The F Sport upgrade is further distinguished by F badges, a more aggressive spindle grille, and a choice of three new body colors. Inside, the four-seat layout of the RC carries over with a unique leather steering wheel and shift knob, Rioja Red leather trim, and a moving ring in the instrument cluster similar to that used in the LFA.
With no power upgrades, the RC 350's 3.5-liter V6 continues to deliver 306 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed auto. After debuting in Geneva next week the RC 350 F Sport will hit showrooms in the fall.
