THE NEW RC 300h

DRIVE THE WORLD’S FIRST LUXURY COUPÉ POWERED BY A FULL HYBRID DRIVETRAIN.

Engineered to stir the soul, the new RC is one of the most beautiful sports coupés ever created. Fusing leading edge design with world-class craftsmanship and advanced technology, it is great fun to drive. Powered by pioneering Full Hybrid or petrol turbo drivetrains, the RC delivers exceptional response, combined with astonishing agility. Intuitive Lexus equipment includes Touch Pad and Pre-Crash Safety. For a more dynamic experience, the new RC F SPORT models have Adaptive Variable Suspension, 19-inch alloys and F SPORT steering wheel.

With its exquisitely stitched sports steering wheel in your hands, in the new RC you’ll enjoy lively acceleration and precise handling. Developed on the Nürburgring, the world’s most demanding racetrack, this groundbreaking sports coupé features an extraordinarily rigid chassis. This, combined with race tuned suspension and innovative drivetrains, raises the bar for driving refinement – offering you an unforgettable experience that is nothing short of amazing.


VEHICLE FEATURES

GET TO KNOW THE RC 300h BETTER

Driving The RC 300h - The Highlights

DRIVING THE RC 300h - THE HIGHLIGHTS

Developed on the gruelling Nürburgring – by the Lexus ‘Master Drivers’ who perfected our LFA supercar – the new RC is wonderfully refined to drive. Cornering agility comes from the car’s short wheelbase and extremely rigid chassis, built using leading edge adhesive and laser-screw welding technology. Multi-link rear and double wishbone front suspension combine with motorsport-inspired aerodynamics to deliver a world-class driving experience. Drive Mode Select lets you tune the RC to suit your mood, while our latest VDIM ensures high-speed driving refinement and safety.

Inside The RC 300h - The Highlights

INSIDE THE RC 300h - THE HIGHLIGHTS

Relax in beautifully crafted leather sports seats that make you feel at one with this very special new Lexus. Built at our award-winning Tahara plant, the RC offers fine examples of traditional Japanese craftsmanship. Take, for example, the ‘Shimamoku’ veneers that are exquisitely crafted by Yamaha’s piano division. Soft-touch upholstery, a precision analogue timepiece and LED ambient lighting add luxury to the interior, while 60:40 split rear seats make this a very practical coupé too.

Safety In The RC 300h - The Highlights

SAFETY IN THE RC 300h - THE HIGHLIGHTS

Fitted with Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management and powerful ventilated disc brakes, the new RC is engineered to help you avoid danger. Supporting your natural driving skills, Pre-Crash Safety uses millimetre-wave radar technology to detect objects ahead – applying the brakes and tightening seatbelts if appropriate. Finally, should you ever be involved in a collision, you and your passengers are protected by a strong safety cell and eight airbags.

Full Hybrid

FULL HYBRID

The RC 300h intelligently combines an advanced 2.5-litre petrol engine with a high-output electric motor. Equipped with D-4S direct injection and dual VVT-i valve control, this highly efficient ‘Atkinson Cycle’ 4-cylinder engine uses Start/Stop technology and exhaust heat recycling to reduce fuel consumption and emissions even further

Sports Driving Position

SPORTS DRIVING POSITION

From a low sports driving position, you’ll really feel the road surface beneath you and sense how the car responds to the slightest steering input.

Drive Mode Select

DRIVE MODE SELECT

Vehicle performance can be fine-tuned using Drive Mode Select. ECO mode reduces emissions and conserves fuel while, for everyday driving, NORMAL provides an ideal balance of power, economy and ride comfort. For enhanced drivetrain responsiveness, simply switch to SPORT or SPORT+ mode.

Leather Heated Steering Wheel

LEATHER HEATED STEERING WHEEL

A beautifully crafted leather steering wheel features finger rests and a cross section optimised to fit comfortably in your hands. Integrated switches control audio, telephone and multi-information display. For added comfort in colder conditions, the steering wheel can be heated.

Rear Suspension

REAR SUSPENSION

Straight-line and cornering stability are supplied by a multi-link rear suspension setup first used on the much-acclaimed GS performance sedan. A combination of high-tensile steel and die-cast/forged aluminium components keep weight low but ensure vibration-free precision.

Advanced Aerodynamics

ADVANCED AERODYNAMICS

The new RC has superb aerodynamics, thanks to details like a near-flat underbody and tiny winglets on the front door pillars. First seen on F1 racing cars, these winglets create air vortices that help pull the airstreams inwards to improve the way the car cuts through the air.

60:40 Flexibility

60:40 FLEXIBILITY

A practical 60:40 split folding rear seat comes standard on RC models. Offering the convenience of an estate car, but with the grace and refinement of a sports coupé, when the rear seats folded down there’s room to carry bulkier objects.

Lexus Premium Navigation

LEXUS PREMIUM NAVIGATION

With vivid 3D graphics and many mapping options, the 7-inch screen is operated by Touch Pad or voice commands. The system can even generate a QR code for your smartphone, to help you reach your final destination on foot.

Mark Levinson® Premium Audio

MARK LEVINSON® PREMIUM AUDIO

The RC’s 17-speaker, 835 Watt Mark Levinson® Premium Surround system is tailored to the acoustic properties of the cabin. It delivers a peerless 7.1-channel digital home-theatre experience, enhanced by Clari-Fi™ that rebuilds sound lost in MP3 digital compression.

Takumi Craftmanship

TAKUMI CRAFTMANSHIP

The new RC is built at our award-winning Tahara plant by Lexus ‘Takumi’ craftspeople. With at least 25 years of experience, each is an expert at detecting the tiniest imperfections. You’ll sense their amazing skill when you first touch the precision machined aluminium audio controls or beautifully stitched leatherwork. Gleaming paintwork is painstakingly wet sanded by hand to ensure a perfect finish. Before a final test drive, the ‘Takumi’ check every car for smooth running in a ‘quiet room’ using their highly trained ears and a sensitive microphone placed strategically in the cabin.

Automatic High Beam

AUTOMATIC HIGH BEAM

At night, Automatic High Beam uses a camera mounted behind the rear-view mirror to automatically switch to low beam when it detects the lights of either an oncoming or preceding vehicle. This reduces the chance of accidentally dazzling other drivers should you forget to switch off the high beam headlights.

Eight Airbags

EIGHT AIRBAGS

In addition to an immensely strong passenger safety cell, occupant protection is provided by eight airbags. The driver and front passenger are protected by 2-stage head airbags, as well as knee and side airbags. Curtain shield airbags run the full length of both cabin sides. All seatbelts are also specified with pre-tensioners.

Pop Up Hood

POP UP HOOD

The new RC features an impact absorbing pop up hood. Activated by sensors mounted in the front bumper, should you collide with a pedestrian, the system slightly raises the level of the bonnet to give more space between it and the hard components of the engine underneath. This reduces the risk of injuries to the pedestrian.

Smart Entry

SMART ENTRY

Approach the RC with the key in your pocket and both door handles gently illuminate to greet you, unlocking when touched. Beautifully sculpted, they have no keyhole, a world-first for this kind of door handle.
