Lexus will unveil the new Lexus RC-F Coupe at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The RC F is the high performance coupe that has already generated huge interest in its motor show appearances around the world.
The RC F first unveiled at the 2014 Detroit Motor Show, and will go on sale by the end of this year. It is powered by the 5.0-litre, 32 Valve V8 engine that churns out a maximum power output of 450bhp and a peak torque of 520Nm. Power is transmitted to rear wheels via an eight-speed Sports Direct Shift transmission.
For the first time, the Lexus RC F will go on track, making speed runs during the “first glance” sessions on the festival’s hill course. The Lexus LFA will also be storming the hill as one of the festival’s supercar competitors.
The vehicle comes with three operating modes- Standard, Slalom and Track, which let the driver adjust the system to provide to gain the optimum degree of traction and control. It shares styling cues with the LFA supercar. The RC F coupe features bonnet air outlets and front cooling ducts. The bodywork includes carbon fibre elements to help keep weight down, including the roof, bonnet and active rear wing.
