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.
