Lexus sharpens RC with range of updates

Time 9:43 am, August 31, 2018

LEXUS has revealed a series of updates for its RC coupe ahead of the facelifted car’s full reveal at the Paris Motor Show in October.

The exterior boasts a range of changes, including a new front bumper corner, LED clearance lamps and additional air ducts at the rear. In addition, the stance is wider and there are also 11 new exterior colours to choose from.

The interior has been refined too. The heater controls and audio panels are now finished in a brushed metal effect, while an analogue clock has been fitted to the centre of the cabin. Mirroring the exterior of the car, the inside is available with a variety of new colour combinations.

Engineers have also enhanced the RC’s dynamics. A new fin shape in the side window mouldings and a revised duct in the rear give the car better high-speed stability, while new shock absorbers and stiffer suspension bushings have been fitted to improve cornering response without forsaking ride quality.

In addition, 19-inch alloy wheels are now fitted to the RC, along with high-performance tyres to further enhance the car’s cornering abilities.

Pricing for the updated RC has yet to be announced, although full details surrounding the car are likely to be announced once it is officially revealed at the Paris show on October 2.
