2015 Lexus RC F SPORT Information

Lexus RC F SPORT Hero

Lexus has released more information on the RC F SPORT set to debut in Geneva next week — here’s the full press release along with a selection of fresh new photos.

Lexus RC F SPORT Side

The RC 350 F SPORT, based on the RC 350, will feature exclusive design elements and enhanced driving performance.

The F SPORT’s dynamic upgrades include Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) and the available Lexus Dynamic Handling (LDH) system. These features provide drivers with an even more rewarding and engaging driving experience.


Lexus RC F SPORT Grille

Readily identified by a model-specific “F” mesh design, the RC 350 F SPORT features a further evolution of the Lexus spindle grille.

The unique 19-inch F SPORT mesh alloy wheels feature machine-finish and dark metallic paint.

Lexus RC F SPORT Interior

The RC 350 F SPORT also inherits a descendant of the innovative LFA driver’s meter with a moving center ring, and an F SPORT perforated leather steering wheel and shift knob. The interior design is completed by Silver Performance trim, an F SPORT-exclusive Rioja Red interior and seats with unique contrast stitching.

Driving Dynamics

Lexus RC F SPORT Badge

Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) is part of the F SPORT package. In response to driving operation, vehicle body motion and road surface conditions, AVS automatically and independently adjusts the performance of the damping at all four wheels. When the vehicle’s SPORT+ drive mode is selected, AVS changes to allow the driver to feel improved body control and precise responses to steering input.

The suspension enhancements of the RC 350 F SPORT are complimented by the available four-wheel steering benefits of the Lexus Dynamic Handling (LDH) system. This leading edge platform technology offers the integration of Dynamic Rear Steering (DRS) and Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS).

Lexus RC F SPORT Rear

Monitoring vehicle speed, steering direction and driver inputs, the system calculates the optimum angle for all four wheels. Using VGRS in the front and DRS in the rear, the system can independently manage both front and rear wheel steering angles to help improve turn-in response, rear grip, vehicle control and overall agility when cornering.

The LDH system monitors vehicle speed and yaw rate, steering angle and speed, and lateral G to calculate the required rear wheel steering input up to a maximum rear wheel angle of 2.0 degrees. The front and rear wheels turn in opposite directions at lower speeds, and in the same direction at higher speeds.

Lexus will introduce the RC 350 F SPORT at a press conference on March 4, at 8:45 a.m. Central European Time at Palexpo’s hall 4, stand number 4211.


  1. Needs a bigger display screen...
  3. Does the the RC-F also have AWS (DRS)? If yes, M4 has no chance.
  4. these rims are the same fitted on the LF-CC and this thing make me literally DROLL
  5. Nice work Lexus I am in love and impressed once more especially with the white colour.Now we wait for the RC200t.
  6. Very nice. I expected a slightly more distinct front-end over the regular RC instead of just the full mesh grill. I.e. IS and RX F-Sports variants have altogether different bumpers.
  7. Needs a larger grille.
  8. Lexus nailed it, I'm madly in love with this beast! Hopefully I can keep my ISF and get this or maybe the RCF. Great job Lexus!
  9. I was expecting a little more, little disappointed not going to lie. I understand there is an RC-F that is an aggressive-beast, but why doesn't this RC F-Sport have a somewhat exclusive front fascia versus the regular version. The IS, CT, RX, LS all include exclusive F-Sport exterior features. I was expecting no fogs, a little narrower spindle grill, and bigger faux-brake vents on the sides.
  10. As long as it has memory seats (why we didn't get the IS 350 F-sport) my wife and I are in!
  11. Apart from the Fog lights on the RC (which just look unnecessary where they are placed) - the RC, RC F and RC F Sport - are truly amazing - in my opinion - the ONLY model where the Spindle Grille actually looks amazing and perfectly fits and suits the car's lines. The RC is not overtly fussy, has clean lines (maybe apart from the rear 'Black lower Grill / Gills on the RC and RC F Sport), amazing poise, stance and the interior middle section fits very nicely (whereby on the IS - the similar section looks cramped). Well done Lexus - I hope THIS is the sign of things to come!!
