Lexus RC 350 - 5

Lexus expands its turbocharged offering in Europe with the addition of the new RC 200t, which will be slotted below the RC 350 and the V8-powered RC F in the model lineup.

Like the recently announced IS 200t, NX 200t crossover and the upcoming RX 200t, the new RC 200t is motivated by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine pushing out 241 hp and 350 Nm to the rear axle via an eight-speed automatic transmission. This enables the coupe to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.5 seconds before reaching a 230 km/h top speed.

The RC 200t can be specified with the F Sport trim, which adds lower and wider F spindle grille along with 19-inch wheels as standard. Things get hotterĀ on the inside, with the addition of a perforated leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift lever, aluminium pedals, scuff plates, 3D-design trims and an LFA-inspired instrument cluster.

Not only that, the F Sport package also includes a Torsen limited-slip differential, retuned front and rear suspension, Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) and an Sport S+ driving mode.
