Lexus has officially unveiled the RC F Coupe which is set to debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show on January 14th. The 2015 Lexus RC F coupe is styled to support the most powerful V8 performance car ever developed by Lexus.
The model has been equipped with an aerodynamic body kit. Ducts beneath the front bumper, fenders, and strategically-placed aerodynamic stabilizing fins create a stance which further identifies the F model. The car also has a revised grille and 19-inch forged aluminum wheels which are available in three different designs.
The RC F features an available speed-sensitive active rear spoiler. It enhances the coupe’s lines at standstill and deploys from the RC F’s deck at approximately 50 mph and retracts when the speed is less than 25 mph.
The striking cockpit-like interior of Lexus RC F complements the aggressive exterior. It is equipped with a new instrument cluster, leather-wrapped sport seats and alloy peals. The 2015 Lexus RC F debuts a Lexus-first elliptical cross-section thick-grip steering wheel with optimum placement of paddle gear shifts.
Performance details are not released but it is expected to be powered by the 5.0-liter V8 engine developing 460 bhp (343 kW). The car will accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and hit a top speed of approximately 300 km/h (186 mph).
The 2015 Rolls-Royce Ghost V-Specification will be available as a standard or long-wheelbase model. V-Specification motif coachlines finish the exterior paint-scheme. Optional visible chrome exhausts and 21” part-polished wheels add further expression to the car.
The V-Specification motif is echoed around the car’s handcrafted interior. The model gets a bespoke clock, steel inlays and a "V-Specification motif" on the seats and dashboard.
Major changes are under the hood as the 6.6-liter V12 engine produces 593 bhp (422 kW) and 780 Nm (575 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 30 bhp (22 kW). With this increase in power the Ghost V- Specification accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds and hits a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).
The Ghost V-Specification will be available to order from January to June 2014.
The concept car is a 2+2 sports car which sports the latest version of Kia’s signature ‘Tiger Nose’ grille resting mere inches from the ground. It has vertical LED headlights, carbon fibre front splitter, a ventilated hood and 20-inch wheels.
The 2014 Kia GT4 Stinger Concept Car is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine that develops 315 bhp (235 kW). It has rear-wheel drive.
Further details will be available on its debut.

The two-door, four-seat Volvo Concept XC Coupe is more compact and safer due to the extensive use of high-strength boron steel and structures with new, ingenious decoupling. It gets a prominent grille, LED-infused headlights and plastic body cladding. The larger 21-inch wheels, the more accentuated wheel-arches and the taller roofline all contribute to a more robust impression and a fuller, capable look.
The interior has four individual seats separated by a full-length center console. It also has a large infotainment system.
Details of the engine specifications have not been revealed.
