Not feeling this orange. Not to say its bad, its just not my taste. But I wouldn't begrudge anyone who went with Solar Flare.

Really liking the orange color, makes it's standout and rare among the standard colors for the RC-F. Solar Flare will definitely be my choice when it's time to purchase one.

That is the bizarre part. Lexus has shipped pre-production prototypes to US most likely for press events and reviews, but have not released any specs or price.

Would rather have ultrasonic blue. Hopefully it's offered in the standard RC as well.

Those wheels dont go, but that orange is nice. Hope to see this with the third wheel option. Thatd be a killer combo.

Those wheel are pointed the wrong way since they are directional...

In the launch pictures they had some pictures of the cars with all wheels pointing the right way, some photoshops with them pointing the wrong way...

Anyone think they'll launch it correctly like 2008-2009 ISF wheels with left side wheels and right side wheels as opposed to just a set of duplicates?

Here are some examples:

Great observation....

On the most recent arrival of the "Solar Flare" and the "Ultra White" at Intersect by Lexus in Japan, they are not directional..

Which can mean two things:

They are preproduction hand builts, so it doesn't matter...

Or

They are only manufacturing Front & Rear wheels for that wheel design. (no left & right)

My guess is with the latter...

I'm sure they will only want to make Front & Rear wheels for all 3 Designs..

Design One - Two Tone *

Guess will all know more soon enough...

Yeah... I actually like the looks of design #1, but if they can't do it correctly, that would suck...

I actually started noticing on my buddy's LS460L stock wheels are also directional, but I noticed that they're backwards on one side... Cannot Unsee now! lol

Common problem for un informed 08-09 IS F owners as well...

Solar Flare looks very good to me, I love it with the Carbon roof. Thatd be my pick and it would really turn heads
