RC 350 F Sport
The RC 350 F Sport brings the adrenaline into the road with more aggressive styling. F Sport exclusive custom drive mode lets you create a unique profile of various drive modes for a more personalized experience according to your taste and needs.
The 2020 Lexus RC 350 F coupe gets a wide range of upgrades designed to boost its performance and image. One of the first targets for Lexus F Sport engineers was reducing weight without compromising the coupe’s sense of refinement and solid construction.
In an effort to reduce weight you can note the change to aluminum for the toe control brackets and upper suspension support brackets. The rear of the RC 350 you can see hollow half shafts are now used in place of the previous solid shafts. In the front a pared down intake manifold and a smaller air conditioning compressor remove weight from the front of this coupe.
The F SPORT–tuned Adaptive Variable Suspension will make you feel you are flying on the road.
The F performance new refresh now includes new stiffer bushings for the rear suspension arms and steering rack mounts.
The powerful V6 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission keep the RC superpowered at all times.
For the ultimate in standing start acceleration, the RC F now includes electronic launch control as standard. With a push of the button on the console, the system automatically adjusts the traction and throttle control for maximum acceleration from a stop. All the driver has to do is press and hold the brake pedal, engage the system, floor the accelerator to bring up the engine speed and release the brake.
New Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires designed specifically for the RC F. These tires on the RC F utilize a unique profile shape, tread pattern and rubber compound, designed to reduce understeer, improve overall lateral grip and increase durability.
The design of the RC F has been enhanced for a more aggressive shape. The front headlights have been updated to a design that features stacked LED lights and integrated daytime running lights. The shape of the signature grille has been modified adding a lower lip opening that stretches across the bottom to create a visually shorter front fascia.
The rear of the RC F is also enhanced by new taillights integrate neatly into a reshaped bumper to give the RC F a fresh new look.
