  • SPYSHOTS: Lexus RC F Coupe helps a Genesis out

    rc-f-coupe-02

    Our spy photographers came back with a rather interesting story from the Nurburgring today of a good samaritan in a Lexus RC F Coupe.

    The Hyundai Genesis that you see in this gallery ran out of petrol at the Steilstrecke corner, and had to be towed to the side by the Dodge Ram 1500 from E-Unit (Emergency Unit), which takes care of stuff like this.

    A few minutes later, this Lexus RC F Coupe stopped by and helped the Hyundai Genesis out with a can of petrol. Nice work, Mr Test Driver! Maybe the owner of the Genesis will consider an RC350 or RC F next. See the upcoming Lexus coupe in a video here.

     
     
  • VIDEO: Lexus RC F lets its V8 sing on the ‘Ring

    Two days ago we brought to you the first photos of a high powered 2-door coupe version of the Lexus IS belonging to the high performance ‘F’ family, as the quad tailpipes on the rear hint at. Though traditionally we should be calling the car an IS F Coupe, it looks like Lexus is following BMW’s footsteps in giving the coupe version of its compact executive a different name.

    A name that’s been mooted is Lexus RC, so this high performance version will be known as the Lexus RC F. This spy video tells you things that mere spy photography cannot – it lets you listen to the growl of the V8 underneath. It also tells us through the sound of the shifts that it’s mated to an automatic gearbox.

     
     
  • SPYSHOTS: Lexus IS-F Coupe testing in Germany

    Lexus-IS-F-Coupe-002

    BMW isn’t the only company coming up with a performance coupe, as Lexus has been recently spotted in Germany testing what appears to be a high performance coupe version of the new IS. A BMW M4 versus Lexus IS-F Coupe battle is on the cards, if Lexus uses the IS name for its upcoming coupe. It is not a given, as BMW and Audi use a bigger number (4-Series, A5 Coupe) for their coupes.

    The idea of an IS Coupe is not new. Paris 2012 saw Lexus wheel out the LF-CC concept, a two-door sneak preview of the IS, which is now the new kid on the 3-Series’ block. That concept was a mix of sleek and sharp, and although we can’t see through the camo here, it should be as bold looking as the new IS.

    This is no normal IS Coupe, though, and the F signs include an aggressive front end with large air intakes, a small hood scoop, sporty multi-spoke wheels, big brakes and a quad exhaust arrangement similar to that on the IS-F. There’s also a pop-up spoiler on the boot lid. Nothing regular about all those.

    What’s under the bonnet is anyone’s guess – will Lexus persevere with a big naturally aspirated V8 engine (not easy to meet European emission regs this way), or will it go the downsizing route like the BMW M4? Click here to see the Lexus LF-CC Concept.
