2015 Lexus RC F storms into the Motor City with 450+ bhp [video]

Lexus has officially unveiled the RC F Coupe at the ongoing North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.

The model comes equipped with an aggressive body kit that includes a new front bumper, revised side skirts and ventilated front fenders. The model also has a bulging hood, an “F-mesh” grille and 19-inch forged aluminum wheels. The car can be further equipped with a carbon fiber package that adds a carbon fiber roof and an active rear spoiler that deploys at 50 mph (80 kmph) and retracts at speeds less than 25 mph (40 km/h).

Talking about the interiors, it pretty much echoes the standard RC but features sport seats, revised instrumentation, alloy pedals and an elliptical cross-section thick grip steering wheel.

Under the hood, motivation is provided by an all-new 5.0-liter V8 engine that outputs in excess of 450 hp (335 kW) and 383 lb-ft (518 Nm) of torque. It is mated to an eight-speed Sports Direct Shift transmission which should enable the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than 4.6 seconds and will be able to hit an estimated top speed of 168 mph (270 kmph).
