Nope. It's production version. Already displayed on Lexus international website.

rear end is already gorgeous, the more I look at the front end the more I like it. Cannot wait to see F Sport and F variants

I hope I can convince the wifey to get this over the CT.
this is a production car.. only variations would be equipment, maybe wheels and regional differences.

Did a quick and dirty photoshop of the IS F-Sport grille on the front of the RC. I think it looks better than the stock grille, whose strong vertical slats reminds me a bit of Lincoln's design style.

Thanks for the photoshop, I would definitely choose the F sport.

The car is growing on me; a lot better than the 3IS IMO. Can't say its my cup of tea yet.

Those rear black vents look like cheap, black plastic; i would have prefer just having openings instead of a grill on them. The spindle grill still hasn't grown on me yet, so i guess im bias against the front.

Am I the only one who can't really stand that grille? We've been used to horizontal slates but the RC is vertical and damn, it's HUGE.

I'd go all the way with the F Sport in this particular model.

comparing to another popular coupe, the G37, we see the RC is a bit longer and wider but with a MUCH shorter wheelbase

We know so well the RC-F is coming that we even know Lexus isn't making a 3rd gen IS-F.
