2015-Lexus-RC-350-F-SPORT-InteriorA true performance coupe, the all-new 2015 Lexus RC 350 F Sport is a sight to behold and an experience to be had. The sleek, low-stance design and sporty good looks are why this machine is getting so much attention and accolade by critics.

Boasting a 3.5-liter V6 engine, this engine is designed to add performance and speed with the dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VV-i) — giving greater torque at lower speeds and horsepower at higher speeds. Clocking in at 5.8 seconds on the 0-60 mph test, the jolt and deep rumble of the exhaust makes this a sports car lover’s dream. The transmission is so advanced, it varies its shifting based on G-force with the available Sport S/Sport S+ driving modes. Throttle, steering and suspension are all modified within each driving mode to maximize performance, comfort and handling. This F Sport model offers 14-inch, two-piece front brake rotors with four piston calipers for optimized control when braking or handling curves.

The design is a true selling point as well, with sleek curves and a bold and powerful-looking fascia grill, strong overall stance and lowered suspension. This F Sport looks like it hugs the ground as it drives and sits parked. The interior is a technology command center with race track-inspired speedometer displays, LCD multi-information display, and navigation and audio systems that impress. The ambient lighting and enhanced bolstered sports seats are engineered to hold passengers in. The exclusive stitching and available red or yellow leather accents offer great racing appeal while asserting true ergonomics for maximum performance for the driver.

This is a performance coupe like none other in its price range and is impressing the racing community as well. The similarities and inspirations were meant to entice that community, but the authenticity in design and performance are wowing them.
