New Lexus RC 350 Shows Off its Luminous Red Paint in Detroit

Indeed, Lexus' newly revealed 450+ horsepower RC F is the one we all would like to own and drive, but for most people, the regular RC 350 will probably be the one they can actually afford – just don't ask us how much as the Japanese brand is still keeping it a secret.

The display model at the Detroit motor show comes in a new dark red finish that Lexus claims "is made brighter and with more contrast thanks to an entirely new painting process, using a two-color base of both silver and red" with the four coats of paint then baked twice to set the color.

Behind the Lexus brand's new trademark "spindle" grille is a 3.5-liter V6 engine teamed with an eight-speed sequential transmission driving the rear wheels.

At the show, Jeff Bracken, Lexus Group Vice President and General Manager, said the automaker expects to sell around 200 RC Fs and 1,200 RC350s each month, after they both go on sale in the U.S. this fall.
