Default Lexus RC F with Carbon Package

First Photos of New Lexus RC F with Carbon Package

One of the options boxes you may want to tick if you're interested in the new Lexus RC F high-performance coupe is the Carbon Package. We read about it when the Japanese brand introduced the car at the Detroit auto show earlier this week, but we hadn't seen what it looked like in full dressing.

The available package offers a clear-coated carbon fiber roof, engine hood and active rear wing.

Like us, you may have noticed that, in the following photos, aside from the white RC F that gets the full treatment, there's also a blue-colored model with the carbon fiber roof and rear spoiler, but what looks like a regular hood. We're not sure yet, as information remains limited, but it could be that Lexus may offer buyers the option of a painted or clear-coated carbon fiber bonnet.

It would be nice if they'd tune the engine for another 10-20hp on this package, similar to LFA N-ring edition.

Carbon spoiler and roof look great, carbon hood looks terrible on the white car IMHO

Even the wing looks out of place... I would do the carbon fiber package as long as the roof is only revealed, while the hood and wing is painted body colored (once the wing is deployed - the carbon would be noticeable on the bottom!)

This is too much cf from appearance pov IMO, I think cf on the roof and rear wing is good enough, ala LFA ...

Couple of rumors floating around that US Carbon Pkg will only see Roof & Wing...

I also doubt Lexus will offer a painted version of the Carbon Hood...

The Full Carbon Pkg should be a hit in other markets..




• The RC F employs a comprehensive "Optional" package of carbon fiber parts drawn from experience with LFA and with a limited edition race car, the IS F CCS-R. The carbon package includes roof, engine hood and active rear wing.

I gotta disagree. Some may not like the look, and it'd be unfortunate to force the carbon appearance if you want the extra HP.

They should just sell them all with the most HP they can get out of the engine.
