Lexus RC F Gets Another Teaser

2015 Lexus RC F Teaser

Here is another teaser image previewing the 2015 RC F before it debuts at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

Lexus remains mum on the details, but they are saying the car will have "half the doors" and "twice the roar" of the IS F. In Lexus marketing speak, the company goes further in describing the car as an "entirely new expression of design and uncompromising performance."

The latest speculation from our end says this car will come with a 5.0-liter V8 producing roughly 455 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. The Lexus 5.0L V8 is a fantastic motor, but we'd prefer if "twice the roar" meant shoehorning an 832-horsepower V16 between the front fenders. Yes, that fantasy machine would be nose-heavy, but it would be so remarkably cool.

Jason Ranu (Tue, 31 Dec 2013 17:33:04 -0800): Cars dont use V16.... They use W16. I dont think people understand I, V and W configurations.
(Tue, 31 Dec 2013 18:03:31 -0800): There is only 1 production vehicle using a W16. (VW built eg. Veyron). a V16 is natively perfectly balanced the only issue is its expensive to manufacturer and is used in everything from planes, trains and vehicles. I think people understand V configurations just fine. V6, V8, V10, V12 etc. still availible to this day.
Jason Ranu (Tue, 31 Dec 2013 18:22:49 -0800): Would you mind explaining me which modern car company use or used V16? They used that between 1930-1940. Alot of people call a I-4 as V-4. thats why i said that. alot of people dont understand the concept. Doubling the cylinders wont double the power. V6 can produce over 800 HP. Saying double the roar doesnt mean V16. Double the roar can be produced with a V6.
