Lexus' RC 350 and RC-F Will Soon be Available

13.11.2014

Lexus Australia will be celebrating its 25th year anniversary and with that in mind, the car manufacturer will be releasing its new RC 350 and RC-F in Australia soon. We’re pumped up because we know the RC-F Coupe has one of the most powerful V8 engine in Lexus history.

We’re sharing what else we found out:

  • The RC-F has been confirmed to hit our showrooms late this year or early in 2015, along with its milder sibling, the RC 350 — itself no slouch with a 3.5-litre V8 developing 234kW of power and 380Nm of torque.
  • But it’s the RC-F that will carry the performance halo on from the Lexus IS-F — although not at the cost of efficiency, with clever technology allowing the engine to switch cycles to improve fuel economy.
  • Handling is enhanced by a torque-vectoring differential with three operating modes — Standard and Slalom for stability and steering response, and Track to aid cornering and acceleration — which Lexus has explained functions differently to the systems used by HSV and other brands.
  • Lexus is still to reveal the RC-F’s lap time for the Nurburgring circuit on which it was largely developed, but we’re expecting it to shave the IS-F’s 4.9 seconds for the 0-100kmh sprint and best the top speed of 274km/h.
