An all-new Lexus coupe will make its global debut at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show and will officially become a new member of the Lexus lineup, Lexus announced today.

Resembling the LF-CC concept that Lexus unveiled back in 2012 at the Paris Motor Show, the new Lexus coupe is named “Lexus RC”, which will come in two models, the RC 350 and the RC 300h (h stands for hybrid).  Both models will be unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show.

Lexus didn’t say much details about the RC’s powertrain except that the RC 350 will be powered by a 3.5 V6 engine and the hybrid model RC 300h will be powered by a 2.5-L engine.

From a few photos that Lexus released ahead of the debut of its new coupe, the RC sports the iconic spindle grille, aggressive lines, headlamps as seen in the LF-LC.  The low beam lamps and rear lamps have an L-shaped pattern design as an expression of the Lexus uniqueness.  There will be two wheel options available for the RC, the 18-inch aluminum five-spoke wheels and 19-inch 10-spoke wheels; each wheel features black finish and platinum center caps.

On the inside, the Lexus RC is equipped the Lexus’ first ever lighting package featuring illumination reflecting upwards instead of downwards.  The dashboard is divided into two sections, with the top section houses instrument panel and a 7-inch navigation display while the layed center console houses the Lexus’ first Remote Touch Interface.

Since it is introduced in late 2013, we expect the Lexus RC will be available in showrooms around the mid 2014 as a 2015 model year.

See “Press Release” for the Lexus RC’s dimensions.
