Australia Finally Gets the 2014 Lexus RC 350
Announced in June, 2014 Lexus RC 350 is now tuning heads in Australia. The car has just been launched, being the most emotive vehicle produced since the LFA supercar. Ahead of its 25th anniversary Lexus has designed the coupe to engage with a younger audience. The brand undertook major design changes in order to create a new direction with its styling and drive experience. In fact, the RC 350 is not an adapted sedan, but it has been created as a coupe from the ground up.
First we have to take in account its involving chassis as well as the high output drivetrain. The styling package and high level of standard equipment contribute towards car's unique presence and strong charm.
Just like other Lexus vehicles, the RC 350 follows company's 'Y' strategy across its three model offerings. This means that it will be introduced in Luxury trim and then followed by F Sport and Sports Luxury.
F Sport boasts Lexus Dynamic Handling system. It incorporates Variable Gear Ratio Steering and Dynamic Rear Steering. On the other hand, the Sports Luxury adds to this Adaptive Variable Suspension, its own 19-inch alloys, 17-speaker Mark Levinson audio, Shimamoku ornamentation, power front seats with driver memory and semi-aniline leather accented trim.
As a standard, all trims will get the Blind Spot Monitor, which can detect vehicles within a range up to 60 metres. In addition, Lexus will also introduce a unique paint application technique together with two custom colours: Infrared and Cobalt Mica.
RC range is driven by the 3.5-litre V6 engine, producing 318 horsepower (234 kW) and a peak torque of 380 Nm (280 lb-ft). The unit is coupled with an eight-speed Sports Direct Shift transmission, and the power is put to the ground via the rear wheels.
