For a long time the premium coupe market has been dominated by European brands, more specifically the Germans. Now we welcome a new challenger, this time from Japan, the new Lexus RC coupe. Part Lexus IS, part Lexus GS, with a dash of LFA, this sleek 2-door coupe adds some sportiness to the Lexus lineup. Two versions are available the milder RC350 and the red hot high-performance RC-F.
Under the hood of the RC are two gasoline engines. The RC350 gets a 312hp naturally-aspirated 3.5-liter V6, while the RC-F gets a meaner 467hp naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter V8. On both vehicles, power is sent to the rear wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission.
