2015 Lexus RC 350 Arriving in Late 2014

Rc3

Lexus' big reveal at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit was the high-performance RC F coupe, a car designed to take on the BMW M4 and Audi RS 5, among others. The luxury brand also brought the car the RC F is based on: the RC 350, which it first showed late last year at the Tokyo Motor Show. The 2015 RC 350 will be available at U.S. dealerships in November or December of this year.

The RC 350's design is a little toned down compared to the RC F, but not as much as you might expect. Lexus' spindle grille still dominates the front end, albeit in a different form, and it's bordered by headlights that wouldn't be out of place on a concept car. Flared rear fenders hint at the car's performance aspirations.

RC1

The RC 350 is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that makes in excess of 300 horsepower (final figures aren't yet available), and it teams with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Rear- and all-wheel-drive versions will be offered.

RC2

Not counting the exclusive LFA supercar, it's been awhile since Lexus has offered a luxury performance coupe. The RC 350 looks well-qualified to fill the void.
