How do you make a sports coupe look more aggressive?

Lower it and widen it. That’s exactly what’s been done to the Project 2015 Lexus RC 350 F SPORT.

Wearing a custom Rocket Bunny wide body kit, the RC has been lowered thanks to set of KW coilovers. Aggressive Brembo brakes have been installed at all four corners with six piston calipers controlling stopping power up front while four pistons see duty in the back.

With the car now being significantly wider, the tires front and rear needed to be widen to fill out the massive wheel wells. The back sees a set of steam-roller 325 tires while the front has slightly more conservative 265 mm tires.

Little has been done to the engine performance and the interior, but there is a GReddy exhaust system and refinished Bride front seats. This is just a taste of what can be done to a Lexus RC in the hands of aftermarket tuners and we expect wilder and crazier things to come for this luxury coupe in the coming years.
