We have seen a number of cool sports coupes announced at the 2014 Detroit Motor Show, the latest one is the Lexus RF C sports coupe.
The Lexus RF C comes with an impressive 450 horsepower, plus an eight speed automatic gearbox, it has a 5 liter 23-valve V8 engine, and certainly looks impressive from the photos.
To get that amount of power efficiently to the ground the RC F will make use of a Torque Vectoring Differential (TVD) to ensure remarkable handling and performance. The power will transfer through a newly calibrated eight-speed Sports Direct Shift (SPDS) transmission with paddle shifters.
“I’ve built RC F to be enjoyed by all enthusiasts – no matter what their level of expertise,” said RC F chief engineer Yukihiko Yaguchi.
“There’s a misconception that racing cars are hard to drive. In fact, they’re easy in the right hands because they’ve been purpose-built for the skill level of their drivers. It’s the same with RC F.
“Electronics can be modified instantly on board to provide appropriate levels of performance and protection. But even at its basic setting, it’s a blast.”
Lexus have yet to announce any details on pricing for the new Lexus RF C coupe, you can find out more details at the link below.
