The much talked about Lexus RC F should most probably be seen on the roads during early 2020. Any new addition of cars to the inventory of Lexus will most certainly be looked with interest and excitement. Therefore it is quite obvious that the launch of the 2020 Lexus RC F is being keenly watched. Though, there is not much information about the exact features, specifications and other details about this release. However, based on inputs from various sources there are quite a few things that come to the mind. To begin with, this makes from Lexus should be in competition with Cadillac ATS-V, BMW M4, and Mercedes-AMG C63 coupe. Let us now spend some time getting to know more about the various possible features that this might have when it comes in the market.
2020 Lexus RC F Exterior And Designs
There could be quite a few things exciting as far as the RC F is concerned. Experts believe that it will have a new-look and quite a bit of attention will be paid to its overall attitude. It could have crisper lines, pinched grille, and the headlights could look a bit more dramatic and could be stacked. As far as the rear is concerned, the taillights could have a new look and the bumper could have a more chiseled look.
The body will most probably be made from carbon fiber. While this could significantly reduce the weight, care will most probably be taken to ensure that it is sturdy and tough. The lightweight, because of carbon fiber makes handling easier and reduces drag quite a bit. It also will most probably come with 19 inch forged alloy wheels. Because of a generous usage of carbon fiber, the overall weight of the car could come down by around 176 pounds when compared to the previous RC F versions.
Lexus RC F 2020 Interior
Talking about the interior, in the absence of reliable information, at best we can hazard an intelligent guess. Going by the previous launches of Lexus, the RC F 2020 version should carry forward from the previous version of the cabin. The multimedia system could be the same and customers would have been happier if it was changed for something more modern and better. However, it is hoped that the red leather seats and other surfaces will certainly stand out. This will get further accentuated by the red carbon trim on the dashboard and the doors.
Engine And Under The Hood
The 2020 version of Lexus RC F would most probably have the same 5.0-liter V-8 engine with eight-speed transmission. However, the engine could be more powerful and could generate up to 472 horsepower and around a torque of 395 pounds-feet. The throttle and traction will most probably be controlled by an electronic launch system. The car should be able to reach a speed of 60 mph from zero in just 4.2 seconds. However, in fine, there are many who believe that it could reach 60 mph from zero in just 3.96 seconds because of the effort in reducing the overall weight of the car.
Though the exact launch date is still not very clear it is expected that it will hit the roads sometime during the latter part of 2019 but it will still be referred to as a 2020 launch. The price is still a secret and under wraps but the base version should be around $64,500 and it could go up to $81,000.
