This is Lexus’s answer to the BMW 4-Series coupe and Audi A5. This is the RC Coupe, due to be officially unveiled at the Tokyo show later this month. It looks pointy. It looks interesting.
The RC Coupe takes styling cues from the lovely LF-LC concept, and gets Lexus’s new Predator-spec ‘spindle grille’ atop a mouth large enough to swallow pedestrians.
What else do we know? That the RC Coupe is just a couple of centimetres bigger in every direction than the 4-Series coupe. That you can’t have it with any wheels smaller than 18s. And that it benefits from ‘a new Lexus painting process’ that apparently produces paint more, um, painty than normal paint.
We’ll find out more at Tokyo, before the RC reaches the UK next year. Would you take one over that annoyingly excellent 4-Series?
