Welcome to Ken Shaw Lexus, your certified Lexus dealership in Toronto, Ontario. We are presenting the new 2017 RC. You can find all the relevant information below. Enjoy!
Lexus RC is designed to inflame your passion for performance. A true coupe – with strikingly assertive exterior styling and a dynamic driver-focused cockpit – RC puts power at your command courtesy of a dual-injection 3.5-litre V6, and exceptional agility at your fingertips.
Lexus RC barely contains its high-spirited performance in an aggressively sculpted body. Deep contours reveal striking contrasts. The three-lamp LEDs at head and tail form a unique L-shaped pattern at low beam – a bold expression of Lexus identity. And up front, the L design flanks the lowest, widest, boldest application yet of Lexus's signature spindle grille.
Inside the RC interior, a dramatic, Lexus-first illumination display welcomes you, glowing floor-up rather than top-down. A moulded sport seat that merges padding and upholstery grips you to optimize racing position. This streamlined driver’s cockpit is accented with sporty carbon fibre highlights, set off against high-contrast NuLuxe or F SPORT NuLuxe trim.
The dedicated Lexus RC chassis solidifies a world-class driving experience. An aerodynamic underbody gives maximized handling, body adhesives give increased strength, and extra-thick rocker panels give superior rigidity. A double-wishbone front suspension and rear multi-link support a wide wheelbase, while precision-machined aluminum wheels – deeply sculpted at 18 inches on RC 300 and 19 inches on RC 350 – add to RC’s muscular strength.
In RC, luxury comes standard with features like premium LEDs, Heated Tilt and Telescopic steering column, and on RC 350, a Driver Seat memory system. Available F SPORT Series 2 Packages add even more deluxe touches, including Navigation, Adaptive Variable Suspension and Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert on RC 300, and Intuitive Parking Assist, Pre-Collision System with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and a Mark Levinson® 17-Speaker Premium Surround Sound System on RC 350.
Witness the evolution in Lexus powertrain engineering. The high-performance 6-speed automatic AWD powertrain is paired with an aggressive dual-injection 3.5-litre V6, unleashing 255 hp and peak torque of 236 lb.ft. on RC 300, and 307 hp and peak torque of 277 lb.ft. on RC 350.
Lexus RC's 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shift is adapted from the IS F performance sedan to optimize power delivery and maximize fuel economy. In manual (M) mode, full torque converter lockup from second to eighth gears enables down changes in just 0.2 seconds. RC's racing spirit is even audible in its engine note, specially tuned to deliver an evocative sports car “growl”.
Unbridled driving enjoyment demands flexibility and adaptability. With Lexus RC’s Drive Mode Select you can toggle among four driving modes: ECO, Normal, Sport and Sport S+. Customize your drive and meet the road – and diverse weather conditions – with the right combination of economy, comfort, performance and handling.
RC's meter cluster is an iconic example of the aesthetic conviction Lexus embodies. Integrating design principles with fine craftsmanship, it ideally positions Operation and Display areas, gauges and controls. Not only can the driver instantly recognize crucial data, the centre meter even swaps its visual scheme according to driving mode.
For the lover of high performance, Lexus RC is a true platform. The rigid strength of the chassis is expertly crafted for sport drivers, using enlarged rockers, body adhesives and underbody aerodynamics to resist the twisting forces of high-spirited driving.
Inside Lexus RC, the influence of sports concept vehicles is resoundingly clear. To give RC drivers the feel of operating behind the wheel of a racecar, Lexus combined padding and upholstery techniques into a single foaming process. The result is a track-worthy, moulded seat offering a luxurious and firm grip. So sit back, and prepare for action.
With exclusively tuned front and rear suspension systems, Lexus RC is an experience in genuinely dynamic handling. In front, the double-wishbone offers a 20 percent increase in sway rigidity. The rear features a multi-link system extensively modified for high-performance duty. Together, they provide outstanding grip and steering control.
The Lexus RC cockpit beckons you to a space that’s at once inviting and exhilarating. A purpose-built ambient lighting system envelopes the cabin, illuminating details from the ground up – starting sleek and low in racing posture, and rising to reveal the elegant upholstery and high-contrast trim that surrounds you.
RC 350's innovative Remote Touch Interface directly connects a driver to the audio and navigation systems, providing tactile feedback for a responsive experience. The touchpad at your side allows you to manipulate menus on the in-dash screen above, with one hand at the controls and the other never leaving the wheel.
Lexus RC 350 offers sublime craftsmanship for sport-loving drivers and discerning audiophiles alike. The available Mark Levinson® Surround Sound Audio System powers out 5.1 discrete channels of pulsating musical accompaniment beside, below and behind you, offering you superb fidelity for your soundtrack.
