2015 Lexus RC 350 F Sport Detailed Before Geneva

Lexus has released details on the new RC 350 F Sport that will debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

This car will slot in between the standard RC 350 and the V8-powered RC F model. Power output falls just shy of the RC 350 even though both cars use the same 3.5-liter V6 engine. In the F Sport model, the motor makes 306 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque, sent through and eight-speed automatic transmission.

The real difference is found in the handling and the style of this car compared to the standard RC 350. Standard on the F Sport is adaptive variable suspension and the Lexus dynamic handling (LDH) system which consists of rear-wheel steering in the back and variable gear ratio steering for the front.

At low speeds, the wheels will turn in separate directions, while high speed cornering will see the wheels turn in the same direction. A maximum of two degrees is allowed for the rear wheels, and the LDH setup will constantly monitor input and can adjust the angle of both the front and rear wheels to maximize grip.
