Lexus RC coupe (pics)

Expect the RCF to look more aggressive. I think this is just the base version.

Edit: Added in a front shot of the car. The headlights are bugging me out (literally )

You know everyone thought "predator" when Lexus introduced that big, gaping hourglass grill a couple of years ago int heir 4th generation GS.

I swear they've gone "alien" with those 3 eyed headlights

It looks great, shape is even better than 4 Series. RC-F with NA V8 is going to be badass. Can't wait for new Supra.

I make fun of Lexus a lot but to be fair it's not bad. The headlights are a little weird to me but overall it's not a bad design. It's somewhat sleek looking.

Be honest though those headlights bug you out a little don't they

Ah, a bit tacky and too much going for my liking but I bet in person this car is quite the showstopper, in a good and bad way.

I'm glad that Lexus has gotten away from the silver console shell. That interior look good. I like the car also, even though the rear end looks like an old P Turbo with those fake gills.

The concept of the LF-CC translated well into the production version. The main thing I'm going to say about the spindle grill is that it's forging an identity for Lexus. It's controversial. Like it or not, its a very bold, aggressive move for this company.

I've always felt that Lexus should not aim for a BMW like sporty character, leave that to BMW. But let Lexus build a car company that remains true to its nature, luxurious, quite, while having enough of a sports like traits.

Lexus seriously needs to update their engine lineup, especially the 3.5 V6 to compete well in the 6 cylinder segment.
The 2GR-FSE has been around since 2006 I believe.

If Lexus offers the 300H in the US I think it would do well.

I actually think the car looks great from every angel, except the front... that new grille style is NOT growing on me...

Interested to see if there is an 'F' version coming. Also want to see how much power/performance the 350 model puts down.

Not going to be anything impressive. It's not a performance car.

It's safe to assume it will be similar to the IS350.

Well the RCF is getting a power bump to match the M4 (RCF will have 465 HP) so the base RC350 might receive a bump as well, depending on what the 435i does.

Looks much better than the IS. I can't wait to see the RC-F. I hope they put proper transmission in it this time unlike the slushbox of IS-F.
