Lexus has revealed another new variant in its coming RC Coupe range, this time in the form of the RC 350 F Sport.

Entering at the top of the regular RC line-up - below the V8-powered RC F champion - the new F Sport joins a growing spread of sharpened Lexus models.

As with the F Sport grades in the IS, GS, CT (and the list goes on…) lines, this new RC variant adds a number of styling and handling upgrades.

Power is again provided by the 233kW/378Nm petrol V6 that drives the ‘350’ models in the IS and GS sedans, sending power to the rear wheels through an eight-speed auto.

On the styling front, there’s the familiar ‘Spindle’ grill in its mesh form up front, along with a more sporting and aero-focused body kit that includes unique bumpers and skirts.

Large 19-inch light alloy wheels sit at each corner, featuring a 10x10-spoke design and a machined/dark-finish colourway.

In the cabin, there’s the usual run of F Sport tweaks, including an LFA supercar-inspired instrument cluster with a centre ring that slides left to right, depending on the occasion.

Boosting the RC F Sport’s dynamics setup is Lexus’ Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) system, developed to independently adjust suspension performance in response to driver inputs, body motion and road conditions.

The AVS system is also tied to the driving mode system, adjusting focus depending on the driver’s selection.

Elsewhere in the RC 350 F Sport pack, you’ll find electric power steering, with variable gear ratio steering at the front and dynamic rear steering at the back-end.

As with the wider RC range, other features include Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management, anti-lock brakes, traction control, and vehicle stability control.

All of this works with Lexus Dynamic Handling, which monitors vehicle speed and yaw rate, steering angle and speed, and lateral G to set rear wheel steering up to 2.0 degrees.

Watch for the RC 350 F Sport to make its official debut in Geneva next week.
