Too much power? Too much control? No such thing. Own the road in a way that's totally your own with an eight-speed transmission (RWD only) and paddle shifters for optimum control. Delivering lightning-fast upshifts and heart-racing split-second downshifts with rev-matching, the paddle shifters in the RC help you realize the full potential of its 3.5-liter V6 or turbocharged engines. And, in the available Sport S/Sport S+ modes, the transmission is so advanced it varies its shifting based on G-forces. By detecting when the RC enters a curve, a lower gear is held throughout for optimal response when accelerating out.
Whether you're looking for added exhilaration or taking a relaxing drive through the neighborhood, Drive Mode Select enables you to make your RC more responsive or efficient with a simple turn of a dial.
With numerous upgrades offered on the rear-wheel drive RC 350 F SPORT, from Lexus Dynamic Handling that coordinates multiple performance systems to an available limited-slip differential, you can get exactly what you desire: performance on demand.
The RC 300 AWD pairs a six-speed automatic transmission with a 260-horsepower* 3.5-liter V6. Featuring Variable Valve Timing with intelligence, the engine is designed to provide added torque at lower speeds and greater horsepower at higher speeds. These refinements combine to generate 236 lb-ft of torque* from 2,000–4,800 rpm.
Available Premium Triple-Beam LED headlamps.
Taking the comfort of the standard seats even further, the heated and ventilated front seats offer separate heaters and fans in the seat cushions to provide optimum comfort, regardless of the weather.
In addition to uniquely shaped front seatbacks that offer added knee room for rear-seat passengers, you'll enjoy the convenience of a standard 60/40-split fold-down rear seat, enabling you to transport longer items with ease.
Customize the climate around you. Individual settings allow the driver and front passenger to adjust their preferred temperatures. And, to ensure the cabin stays as fresh as it is beautiful, a smog-sensing climate-control system automatically switches into recirculation mode if it senses high levels of pollutants outside.
Unique door-pocket LEDs housed behind the door handles help provide a sophisticated entrance into the cockpit.
To help keep you focused on the road ahead, intuitively placed controls put a variety of features at your fingertips. Among them: audio, voice activation, multi-information display and cruise control.
The available 17-speaker, 835-watt Mark Levinson®* Premium Surround Sound Audio System features patented, proprietary Clari-Fi®* technology that restores audio quality from compressed music, resulting in crisp, clear, dynamic sound from any source.
