Some cars make our hearts beat faster. This particular Lexus RC F takes it a step further by displaying our heart rate on the outside with special electroluminescent paint.


Lexus is fielding this new RC F GT Concept, based closely on the road-going production muscle coupe, at the upcoming Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, with Justin Bell behind the wheel.


Lexus may not be ready just yet to enter Australia's highly competitive V8 Supercars series, but it appears to be paving the way this year by providing an RC F to act as a safety car, an IS 350 F Sport as a medical car and a GS 350 F Sport as a support vehicle.


The newest member of Dubai's highly regarded police fleet is Lexus' high-performance RC F coupe, complete with a 467-hp V8.


Lexus' Super Bowl commercial for the RC 350 starring an RC version sliding around didn't make it to the top of many lists of the night's favorite ads. However, it was still a huge hit for the brand by driving a significant increase in traffic to learn more about the coupe.


Lexus RC350 Super Bowl Commercial

Lexus opted to do some drifting with its new RC coupe during the 2015 Super Bowl, showing both a full-sized car and its remote-controlled miniature.


Veteran racer Mattias Ekström campaigns the meanest looking Audi S1 on the block in the FIA World Rallycross Championship. With 600 horsepower on tap, it can reach 60 miles per hour in a claimed 1.9 seconds. However, for Ekstrom's latest race in the Audi pits him against a pint-sized doppelgänger in the form of an RC replica of the rallycross machine.


Lexus dealers may be clamoring more for a three-row crossover than a two-door convertible, but as far as the automaker itself is concerned, the prospect of a droptop is not out of the question.


Just over two weeks after Lexus activated its online configurator for the 2015 RC350, the Japanese luxury marque is flipping the switch on the car we really want to customize – the 467-horsepower RC F.

A traditional vehicle review goes like this: Reviewer drives car, reviewer gathers thoughts, reviewer relays vehicle impressions to audience. But what if instead of explaining what it's like to drive a given car, the reviewer could simply show the audience their response to the vehicle? With advancements in wearable biometrics technology, it's now possible to replace car review adjectives with cold, hard data.


Just a few years ago, Holden and Ford were the only manufacturers competing in Australia's V8 Supercars series. But those days were left long ago in a cloud of smoke on the track, and are only disappearing even further in the rearview mirror as the latest intel suggests Lexus could be ready to enter the series as well.


When Lexus unveiled the LF-C2 concept at the LA Auto Show last week, it did two things: it previewed the direction in which the Japanese luxury automaker's design department was looking for the immediate future, and it previewed a cabrio version of the RC coupe (to replace the IS Convertible) on the other. But the latter, according to new reports, was ruled out before the concept ever took the stage.


Fancy yourself an example of Lexus' take on the BMW 4 Series and Audi A5? Well, now you can customize your very own RC on Lexus' consumer website. With prices starting at $42,790 for a rear-drive model while an all-wheel-drive RC kicks off at $45,025. Neither price includes Lexus' *$925 destination charge.


It's a good thing senior editor Seyth Miersma doesn't live in Japan, or he wouldn't have been able to snap a photo like the one you see here, of a fresh-off-the-line Lexus RC F on hand at a first drive for media. That's because Toyota's Japanese arm has outright canceled its RC press launch. Sure, we've heard about events being delayed, but canceled? That's rare. Even worse is the reason: according to Automotive News, the event was nixed due to lack of interest. Wow.
