  7. The new RC gains a sporty-yet-elegant exterior that draws on the svelte design language of the LC flagship coupe A new version of the Lexus RC luxury sports coupe will make its global debut at the Paris Motor Show on 2 October. Sales of the new model will commence from late 2018. Since its introduction in 2014, the RC has played a major role in promoting Lexus’s commitment to delivering a more emotional quality in the driving experience provided by its vehicles, with its sporty appearance and versatile driving character. The fresh new RC retains all the virtues of the current model, but takes them to a higher level by adopting the latest evolution of Lexus’s signature design language and sharpened driving dynamics inspired by the brand’s flagship luxury coupe, the LC. The exterior styling remains as sporty as the current model, but subtle changes in the details, inspired by Lexus LC design cues, imbue it with a new-found elegance. Inside the cabin, everything from the high-quality materials to the precise layout of controls and gauges was crafted to maximise driving pleasure. Enhancements have been made to the RC’s aerodynamics, tyres and suspension, and there are also improvements to engine response and steering feel, all of which reflect the “sharper and more refined” drive philosophy that was introduced by the LC. The new RC is more stable than ever under a wide variety of driving conditions. This provides a high level of driver confidence and a reassuringly flat ride quality, making the coupe an ideal grand tourer, whether you’re negotiating a twisty mountain road or simply making a long-distance commute on the open highway. ADOPTING THE EXTERIOR DESIGN LANGUAGE OF THE LC FLAGSHIP COUPE Lexus designers sought to maintain the RC’s dynamic coupe proportions, while adding a high level of elegance to the exterior. Key to achieving this was the addition of distinctive design elements, such as a new front bumper corner that flows down from the headlamps and a grille mesh pattern comprising shapes which gradually transform from top to bottom, creating an intriguing visual tension. The vertical arrangement of the extra-small triple LED headlamps and new L-shaped LED clearance lamps add to the car’s more distinguished appearance. Air ducts have been added to the corners of the rear bumper, resulting in better handling stability and enhanced overall driving response. A wider stance and lower centre of gravity reflect the car’s high ability to maintain grip in different road conditions. The rear combination lamps now house more pronounced L-shaped lenses that are a new signature design feature for Lexus coupes. Eleven different exterior colours will be available for the RC, including Naples Yellow and Sky Blue, shades which perfectly communicate the car’s dynamic nature. The new RC F Sport features the same grille mesh pattern that graces all Lexus F Sport models, together with many other custom exterior and interior items that are exclusive to this special grade. These include powerfully styled 19-inch alloy wheels, inspired by those used by the LS and LC luxury flagship sedan and coupe. DRIVING PLEASURE HEIGHTENED BY INTERIOR REFINEMENTS A brushed treatment has been applied to the heater control and audio panels, generating a higher sense of quality, while the knee pads either side of the centre console have been made larger and raised higher, creating a greater sense of space in the front of the cabin. The driver’s palm rest has been reshaped and a stitching pattern has been added to the surface, showcasing the designers’ high attention to detail. A new analogue clock, identical to the one in the LC, sits high on the instrument panel in another identifying feature of Lexus coupes. New ornamentation options, including real aluminium Naguri and Brushed Metal will be available for the RC F Sport. In all, RC customers will have five options to choose from. Interior colours include Ochre, which is also featured in the LC, and Mustard, which comprises subtle yellow accents on a black background. Seven interior colour combinations will be available, including those reserved for the F Sport. “SHARPER AND MORE GRACEFUL” DRIVING CONCEPT Adopting the driving concept of “sharper and more graceful” that defines the LC, Lexus engineers have aimed at making the new RC thoroughly fun to drive by focusing their attention on details, such as enhancing the car’s aerodynamics and fine-tuning the suspension system and powertrain. Endowed with a flatter and more stable ride quality and sharper handling characteristics derived from the LC, the new RC is more athletic and responsive than ever. Enhanced aerodynamics, achieved with details such as a new fin shape in the side window mouldings and a duct in the rear bumper, give the car better handling stability. New 19-inch wheels shod with higher-grip tyres support excellent steering response. New shock absorbers, which provide significant damping force from low suspension stroke speeds, and stiffer suspension bushings have also been introduced. The new RC underwent extensive real-world testing, with chassis engineers constantly fine-tuning performance, to improve ride and handling. The new Lexus RC will make its world debut on October 2 at the Paris Motor Show.

    Lexus LC 500 V8 virtuoso performance

    While a great symphony orchestra deserves a concert hall stage, a concrete car park provides the ideal acoustic platform for a virtuoso “performance” by the Lexus LC 500 in Exit Music, a new short film celebrating the thrilling sound of the muscular coupe’s V8 engine True to its commitment to delivering exhilarating performance in its cars, Lexus has tuned the LC 500 specifically to produce a great sound, adding another dimension of driving pleasure to the car’s high style and performance appeal. To create Exit Music, Lexus handed the keys to its flagship sports car to stunt driver and three-time British Rally Champion Mark Higgins. The master wheelman hustles the car through the tight confines of Bristol’s Cabot Circus multi-storey car park, using throttle and brake to produce a roaring crescendo of noise. With the area closed to the public and working in controlled conditions, he explores the LC’s amazing aural range, with ultra-quick flicks of the paddle shifts to move through the 10-speed automatic transmission, brushing the 7,300rpm red line as the car power-slides between pillars and descends the car park’s spiral ramps. The wail of the naturally aspirated engine is matched by the scream of the car’s Michelin Pilot Super Sport Tyres. Higgins, who has experienced many of the world’s most desirable and powerful cars, was impressed: “The LC is a lovely car and it looks gorgeous,” he said. “It gives you everything you want in terms of luxury but it’s fun to drive as well. And the sound it made through that car park at two in the morning was amazing – it echoed out all over Bristol. It’s a car that I would be very, very happy to drive every day.” Lexus took great steps to give the LC 500 a sound that stirs the emotions, combining the noise produced by the air intake at the front of the car and the exhaust system at the rear to create a “concert hall” effect inside the cabin, both when the car is accelerating and slowing down. The air intake is fitted with a sound generator with dimensions precisely calculated to maximise the desired sound frequency and level. Its opening is connected directly to the car’s cowl reinforcement, to generate reverberation in the enclosed space, giving the sound a natural quality. At the rear, extra valves in the front section of the main exhaust silencer open and close with the driver’s use of the throttle. The length and diameter of the main silencer pipe were also calculated to generate a rousing exhaust note.
