Lexus RC Design
The Lexus RC series is designed with comfort and luxury in mind, although sportiness was also very much part of the equation. As with any other Lexus model, your attention is immediately drawn to its massive, chromed spindle grille, albeit with a more luxury-oriented, Lexus ES-style vertical slats styling here in the Coupé.
The sharp Triple-Beam Led headlamps design coupled with the Lexus signature L-shaped daytime running light gives the RC coupé its distinctive striking front end which exudes a commanding road presence. A subtly integrated vertical air inlet on either side of the lower bumper channels the air through the outer wall of front wheels, reducing drag while also cooling the brakes.
Its clean and subtle character line coupled with a steeply raked A-pillars accentuates its sleek yet muscular form. Pronounced wheel arches and broad shoulder haunches highlights its aggressive stance and the generously sized 18-inch alloy wheels compliments the hunkered down-look.
The coupé silhouette is further accentuated by the slopping roof line and the strong shoulder line toward its dramatic rear fascia, subtly shaped boot lid with an integrated spoiler, the L signature rear LED lights, aggressively styled lower bumper with side fins and punctuated by the twin trapezoidal exhaust exits with the diffuser like glass-black trim.

It is marginally bigger than the Mercedes-Benz C 200 Coupe but with significantly shorter wheelbase. 1,110 mm shorter to be exact.
