Lexus announced last week that they would be showing two distinct RC models at the Geneva Motor Show: the RC 350 F Sport and the RC F GT3 Racing concept. This week, the company decided to reveal both before the start of the Geneva Motor Show.
We'll begin with the RC 350 F Sport, which fills in the gap between the standard RC 350 and RC F. Like all other F Sport models, the RC 350 F Sport doesn't get any changes to the engine. That means it will feature the standard 3.5L V6 with 306 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. What has changed is the suspension. The F Sport comes with Lexus' Adaptive Variable Suspension, which adjusts the damping on all four wheels dependent on road conditions, speeds, and body motion. There is an optional Dynamic Handling system which adds a new steering system and rear-wheel steering.
Design cues for the new F Sport include a slightly more aggressive spindle grille, sharp nineteen-inch wheels finished in a dark metallic color, and F Sport badging. Inside, the F Sport gets an exclusive Rioja Red interior color and the steering wheel and shift knob wrapped in perforated leather.
The RC 350 F Sport goes on sale later this fall.
