The Lexus RC will see a family of:

  • RC 300h
  • RC 350
  • RC 200t
  • RC F

5 different version how ever we know that most likely the F Sport will be available in the RC 200t and RC 350 badges. Lexus build the RC on the GS platform but features an IS type cockpit; Lexus stated that it didn’t want the public to think of the RC as just an IS Coupe but rather the Lexus RC and I think Lexus did a great job of separating the two something Audi, and BMW as failed to do. With designs from the Lexus LF CC and LF LC concepts the RC sets it self apart from the competition; offering a set of luxury in the compact coupe, a couple someone can drive around and feel as if they was driving around a comfortable luxury sedan. The unique Triangle headlights are a spin off of the LF LC headlights something I rather, however Lexus did put in its efforts in designing the vehicle offering both uniqueness to the RC and a bit of the brand L Finesse design  theme. The auto market people and enthusiasts who are not a fan calls the car a run down Honda coupe wannabe has no idea about the vehicle design and the fact that the Lexus and Honda accord coupe doesn’t has any similarities in design.
