The 2014 Lexus RC and RC-F will be revealed in Frankfurt

We now have more details on the future models Lexus plans to launch at the 2014 edition of the Frankfurt Motor Show. We are actually talking about the Lexus RC and RC-F, which, according to the carmaker will be available for sale next in year in September. You had the opportunity to see several spy photos a few weeks ago and were actually of the RC prototype, or at least this is what a Lexus specialist declared. When it comes to styling, the model will be borrowing some elements from the LF-CC concept. We will have the opportunity to see it with a new spindle grille and a wheelbase shorter than what the IS has. The company has established a starting price of around $ 40.000. The new models will be offered with a choice of three power trains. Te first one is a 2.0-liter turbo followed by a 2.5-liter hybrid and a V6 3.5-liter with Torsen limited slip-differential. In case you are really interested in maybe owning one of these models some day, you should know the RC-F will come with a carbon fiber roof, hood and trunk lid, but also with a LFA-derived speed-sensitive automatic rear spoiler. The F version will be 15 mm lower and will also have a few tweaks which will enable the car to accelerate and reach a top speed of 186 mph. The 2014 Lexus RC-F will have a starting price of around $100.000 and will receive power from a V8 5.0-liter engine Euro 6-compliant capable of generating 455 BHP and 543 Nm of torque. To transfer the output to the wheels, the engineers have offered a Sports Direct Shift 8-speed automatic manual transmission with paddle shifters available with three modes: Normal, Sport and Snow. The model will ride on 19-inch BBS alloy wheels covered in Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires. We will see this model for the first time only next year in January at the Detroit Motor Show.
