HIGHLY RIGID BODY
Whether it’s the striking beauty of the intensely sculptured lines found on the outside of the RC or the profound strength delivered by its reinforced side sills and underbody, you’ll discover the unconventional design of the RC can elicit a response as visceral as the one evoked by its radical performance. Designed from the ground up, its highly rigid and lightweight design is a product of innovative laser screw welding techniques, aluminum reinforcements and a special adhesive bonding process.
EIGHT-SPEED SPORT DIRECT-SHIFT TRANSMISSION
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 and paddle shifters (RWD only) 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.

RC 350 RWD
The most powerful RC lineup has arrived. Boasting port and direct injection and a throaty exhaust note reminiscent of the LFA supercar, the 3.5-liter V6 engines in the 260-horsepower* RC 300 AWD and 311-horsepower* RC 350 have been enhanced to deliver an even heavier dose of exhilaration. While the V6 in the RC 350 propels it from 0 to 60 in 5.8 seconds (RWD)* and 6.0 seconds (AWD),* both V6 engines feature dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i), designed to provide added torque at lower speeds and greater horsepower at higher speeds.
RC 300 AWD
Throw caution to the wind. Or the rain. With the brilliantly engineered all-wheel drive system on the RC 300 AWD and RC 350 AWD, you experience control in nearly every driving condition. By monitoring current conditions, the system automatically distributes engine power between the front and rear axles to provide optimum traction and control—even in inclement weather.
Unlike most automakers, Lexus didn’t outsource the development of its turbocharger. Painstakingly researched and engineered by Lexus until it met their rigorous standards for performance, the RC 300 makes the most of every cubic inch of its 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. And then some. Relying on highly evolved twin-scroll turbocharger technology and the ability to seamlessly move between conventional and Atkinson cycles, it delivers quick acceleration and greater efficiency as you cruise through town.
