Lexus has unveiled the 2014 RC-F, two weeks after a leaked NAIAS invitation provided some preliminary and juicy details about the high performance coupe. Official specifications are not available at this point but the aforementioned invitation said something about a V8 5.0-liter gasoline engine delivering 460 bhp (343 kW). The power unit could be enough to enable the RC-F to complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in about 4.5 seconds before hitting a top speed of approximately 186 mph (300 km/h). Carbon fiber body parts will be optionally available to lower the car’s curb weight.
The 2014 Lexus RC-F comes with an aerodynamic body kit featuring beefy front and rear bumpers, updated side skirts, ventilated front fenders and a bulging bonnet. Other than that, the vehicle comes with 19-inch forged alloys available in three styles, as well as an updated front grille. There’s also an active rear spoiler automatically deployable at 50 mph (80 km/h) which will retract at speeds below 25 mph (40 km/h).
