To be perfectly honest, the color is still growing on me. When Lexus introduced the RC’s “exclusive orange” through an interactive ad campaign, I had to consider just how I felt about it. I didn’t like it.
Orange is my favorite color. Both in a general, and automotive sense. And honestly? I don’t know why.
After seeing these new pictures, I’ve felt my brain make the slow, yet steady shift towards the yes/no feeling. As Rome (and my love for orange) wasn’t built in a day, perhaps I will wake up one day giving an approving head nod.
A psychologist might have something to say about this late-onset love for orange cars. Looking back, there’ve been a long line of awesome orange vehicles that have steadily swayed my judgement. They built favor, one by one, breaking down barriers from my personal approval of orange. The Acura RSX-Type S, The E92 M3, The Holden Monaro and the 2013 Subaru WRX STi come to mind.
Or maybe, it’s because the RC F’s signature blue is just so amazing, it won’t allow me to accept the RC F any other way. #WWFS? (What would Freud say?)
Anyway, what do you think? Love the new orange? Hate it? We’d love to hear your thoughts.

edit: In the time between finishing this article and formatting the photos for the post, I’ve decided. This color is amazing. Can’t wait to see it in person.
