THE NEW RC

SHARP YET SMOOTH

The reimagined RC coupe has a distinctive sharp yet smooth character. Danish chef Andreas Møller had the first test drive after which he created a unique dish to capture its contrasting qualities.

DRIVING EMOTION

  • THE NEW RC

    NEW-FOUND ELEGANCE

    The design of the new RC is inspired by the Lexus flagship luxury coupe, the LC. A new front bumper corner flows smoothly down from the headlamps and a grille mesh pattern gradually transforms from top to bottom. The F SPORT features an exclusive black trim around the grille mesh and windows.

    Vertically arranged extra-small triple LED headlamps and new L-shaped LED clearance lamps add to the car’s sharper more distinguished appearance. The rear combination lamps now house more pronounced L-shaped lenses. A new signature design feature for Lexus coupes.

    CHEF ANDREAS CREATED A UNIQUE DISH TO REFLECT THE SHARP LINES OF THE RC AND ITS LUXURIOUS INTERIOR, FULL OF SURPRISING FLAVOUR COMBINATIONS SUCH AS LIGHTLY SALTED AIRY CANDY FLOSS SPRINKLED WITH LEMON DUST.

THE NEW RC

REFINED SMOOTHNESS

With its flatter, more stable ride quality and sharper handling characteristics derived from the LC, the new RC is sharper and more refined than ever.

Details such as a new fin shape in the side window mouldings and a duct in the rear bumper, give the car better handling stability and enhanced aerodynamics.

ENHANCED QUALITY

Inside the cabin, everything from the high-quality materials to the precise layout of controls and gauges was crafted to maximize driving pleasure.

  • The exquisite Aluminium Naguri cabin trim on the RC F SPORT Models was inspired by the swirling patterns on traditional Japanese sword blades. Inside the car, a soothing ambient lighting system illuminates upward to bathe the cabin in soft light. The door trim lighting automatically adjusts to suit driving conditions. A new analogue clock, identical to the one in the LC, sits high on the instrument panel in another identifying feature of Lexus coupes.

    SHARP YET SMOOTH COMES ACROSS IN THE DIFFERENT DRIVING MODES, FROM A VERY SPORTING FEELING TO A VERY COMFORTABLE FEELING.

THE EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW IN PARIS

The exclusive pop-up event was held a month ahead of the Lexus RC coupe’s world premier at the Paris Motor Show 2018. Chef Møller of restaurant Copenhague on the Champs-Elysées, whose skills were honoured with a first Michelin star earlier this year, envisioned a dish that translates the essence of the reimagined RC to deliver something truly remarkable.
