Take one look at the new Lexus RC F and it'll be fairly obvious that Toyota's luxury division went to considerable lengths to make the new muscle coupe look the part. Still, there will always be those looking for that extra measure of visual aggression. And for them, Lexus is reportedly offering this carbon-fiber package.

The kit apparently includes a new hood (complete with central air vent), roof and active rear spoiler, all made of carbon fiber. The parts in question are particularly evident when installed on the white example of the RC F pictured here, giving it an even racier look than the stock model.

We've yet to receive official details from Lexus on the availability of the Carbon Package, so we don't know how much it will cost - or for that matter, if the components have been recrafted from actual carbon fiber or whether the woven bits simply overlay the existing panels as is often the case with aftermarket parts. But while we wait for official word, you can check out the images that have been circulating the internet in the gallery above.

      Please make it all black so that the grill isn't so clearly present...

      This package just doesn't look right on this car. It makes the chrome trim look really out of place. Or the chrome trim makes it look really out of place. I don't know which. This car is too torn between being aggressive, and being luxurious, imo.

      What gets me wondering is that there were a bunch of designers, who presumably went to design school and were accomplished enough to be hired and paid by Lexus and who sat down and looked at the car and looked at the grill and somehow concluded that, Yeah! We like that grill on that car!! Did not even one of them say that you guys must be joking? Didn't any one of them have the sense to see the obvious?? Boggles the mind!!??

        Just jotting down your username so when in the near future you praise the design we remember you disliked it at first. If they had connected the center bar above the mesh instead of behind it, I'm sure you would have thought the front was bland. Very innovative front end and like the new current IS, it's far better designed than it's competitors. The new 3 already looks dated, and the C is as usual a scaled down S Class. This is new and breaking the norm of what is out there.

      Lexus imitates punks trying to imitate race cars? Oh Lexus, you've really lost your way.

      No rice for Lexus, please. Now that they've got an actual good-looking sports coupe, it needs to stay classy.

      Much like the new IS, the RC-F has a beautiful shape that is completely ruined by atrocious details that seem to have been added just to try and make the car different for different's own sake. It feels forced and shouty. The vents behind the rear wheels are tacky and badly integrated. The front bumper is a mess. And I wish they would quit trying the split headlight idea, it just doesn't work, and would look a hell of a lot better as one assembly. I know they're trying to shake their "boring" image, but they should do it with elegant designs, not this strange mash-up of a wonderfully designed basic shape ruined with tacked on non-sense.

        That really sums up the new IS, an excellent design with bad finishing touches. Let's hope the eventual restyling fixes that

      Lexus design has just answered the question no one asked. "what would this car look like if the grill stretched all the way to its ass"

      Not bad in my opinion. Would make one heck of a leased vehicle. Hopefully the guys over at concept vehicle leasing will have it in!

      See I like this car it looks like a lux coupe to me. You can totally tell its based off the joint venture with Subaru. But I really don't like the ft-1 that front end I feel like they are trying to put a Ferrari nose on it. Also parts of that ft 1 are very sharp then you look at the front and it looks like a flaccid penis nose. If Toyota can keep the weight down on this rc it should be a hit.
