According to the information and spy photos that our team has got recently, the luxurious Lexus brand has been preparing a surprise for all of its fans due to the 10th anniversary of the Lexus Performance Brand. Namely, the performance-oriented coupe, which saw its last update in 2015, is about to appear as a redesigned 2019 model. It will be the new Lexus RC F.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Lexus RC F, this model is going to hit the market as a luxury coupe that simply promises excellent performance. The prototype of the new RC F was caught during its testing session last year. Although the prototype was heavily camouflaged, the spy photos could somehow reveal some subtle, but also significant changes and updates this model will undergo. Improvement can be noticed in the front as well as the back part of the vehicle. The front fascia will proudly wear its unusually-shaped grille and a new set of LED daytime running lights. The front bumper will also be redesigned and more aggressive with reshaped air intakes in it. You will also notice the front lip spoiler. In the rear part of this model, you will notice a redesigned bumper and a new diffuser insert. The new RC F will stand on 19-inch forged alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 2 tires.
The Lexus brand has always been known for its luxurious interior with elegant details made of high-quality materials. The 2019 RC F will keep that reputation, perfectly combining these sophisticated features with sporty ones. The cabin of this coupe will be spacious and it will provide comfortable sports seats that will be supportive and adjustable. Lexus will use leather to cover the seats and other parts of the cabin. Besides leather, you will also find some carbon fiber trim pieces inside. Lexus will also upgrade its technology. When it comes to innovations, it has been said that the instrument panel of the new RC F will be adjustable. This will largely help the driver, especially at high speeds. You should also expect a larger touch-screen display with the latest infotainment system and numerous next-generation options. Safety systems and driver assist features will be included as well.
The 2019 Lexus RC F should keep the current 5.0-liter V8. Such an engine delivers 467 horsepower and 389 pound-feet of torque. It will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. A rumor has it that the new RC F might introduce another engine option, perhaps more powerful, but this has not been confirmed yet. We hope for more information soon.

The 2019 Lexus RC F should be expected in the market by mid-2018, probably in summer. It has been estimated that the price of this luxurious coupe could go up to $100,000 for the highest trim level, but it should start around $62,500.
