The stylish sports coupe missing from the lexus range will debut at upcoming Tokyo Motor Show and will be called RC coupe. The car in picture is not a concept car but Lexus calls it «pre-series» model which we assume will be very similar to the final production model. Lexus RC coupe borrows some features of LF-LC concept car. Two models will be offered by the company. A Lexus RC 350 with 3.5 liter V6 and hybrid version RC 300h which is equipped with 2.5 liter four cylinder engine mated with an electric motor. The details of power and consumption is not revealed yet, but we assume that RC 300h has the same drive-train as the Lexus IS F Sport, which means a peak output of 200 hp.
Compared with standard IS, the new RC coupe has a slightly short wheelbase of 2,730 mm and the length is extended by few millimeters and now measures at 4695 mm. The height of the Lexus RC Coupe is 1,395 millimeters. The new sports coupe from Lexus is a direct rival to BMW 4 series coupe. Lexus will later on offer a more power RC F Sport model to rival the upcoming premium German sports cars.
