The updated Lexus RC is now available with a range of new Toyota Racing Development (TRD) accessories in its home market of Japan, including cosmetic and suspension upgrades to give it the look of a V8-powered RC F without all the go.
Shown in RC300h F Sport guise here, the 'F Sport Parts' catalogue is reportedly exclusive to the Japanese market and includes gloss-black body kit bits, a carbon-fibre lip spoiler, forged alloy wheels, sports exhaust system, and performance dampers.
Pricing for the body upgrades aren't detailed, though according to a report by Carscoops, the set of 19-inch forged alloy wheels are priced at US$5000 ($6925), and that doesn't include the tyres either.
Under the skin, the F Sport Parts Lexus RC features a sports muffler ($8033), steel underbody bracing, and a new performance damper brace at the rear.
As you can see, the key visual differences between the optioned-up RC300h and the full-fat RC F other than the badges are the more conventional horizontally-aligned quad-tipped exhaust rather than the stacked design that is a trademark of F models, and the less-pronounced rear guards.
While the F Sport Parts upgrades are specific to the Japanese market, Australia will be getting the facelifted 2019 RC coupe before the end of the year – you can read more about the updated model here.
