See the New Lexus RC F's Digital Gauges in Action with Bonus Sound Track

You may be tempted to believe that the following footage was shot outside with the new 2015 Lexus RC F thrashing its 5.0-liter V8 on the road, but it was, in fact, filmed at the brand's Detroit Auto Show stand.

We assume the sounds we hear were pre-recorded and coupled to the instrument panel, which is two-thirds digital, and one third analogue with backlighting, the latter limited to the speedometer.

Lexus says the RC F’s combination meters that differ from the regular RC coupe are a further development of those used in the V10-powered LFA while also referencing aircraft cockpit instruments.

On the center you'll find a large tachometer that alters according to drive mode and which incorporates a digital speedometer and lap time recorder, while on the left hand side, there's a screen that shows differential torque vectoring monitor, G-Force meter, oil and water temperature gauges, mileage information and a stopwatch.

Pretty impressive stuff, don't you think?

You can watch the video, which comes to us courtesy of YouTube user Kaizen Factor, right below the jump.
