Lexus RC F SPORT in Infrared

A red Lexus RC 350 F SPORT has been spotted in California — here are photos from the Endles Automotive Instagram feed:

This new color is called Infrared, and it uses a special painting technique:

For the red exterior, the factory starts with a base coat of silver and then applies a clear coat. Then, the clear coat is covered by a translucent red coat, which is then topped with another clear coat. The four coats of paint are baked twice to set the color.
