SEXY, sophisticated and soul stirring.

These three words are what Lexus describe their all new RC 350.

Here is a sports coupe that performs brilliantly and looks sensational.

Her exterior is nothing short of head-turning.

Meticulous attention to detail has been given to make every angle captivating.

Lexus RC 350's exterior reveals surefootedness and speed thanks to a low, wide stance, prominent flared wheel arches, low set bumper and aggressive spindle grille.

The design is as practical as it is attractive.

For example, the subtle shape of the rear bumper corners - not only are they pleasing to the eye, but they also enhance the RC's aerodynamics by funnelling airflow to the back of the vehicle.

Outstanding performance is what is delivered from under the hood of the RC 350 - with a 3.5L V6 engine producing 233kW at 6,400rpm and 378Nm or torque at 4,800rpm.

Simply put, this power will make the hair on your arms stand on end.

The RC 350 engine is teamed with an 8-speed Sport Direct Shift (SPDS) that provides the best of both worlds.

In automatic mode it's silky smooth, but switch to the 8-speed manual mode and it's all about sports shifting.

The RC 350 is fitted with a Drive Mode Select providing three modes: Eco, Normal and Sport.

As each name suggests, with the turn of this dial can adapt to your style of driving depending your mood.

With safety in the forefront of their minds when engineering this sports car, the Lexus RC 350 includes safety features such as eight airbags as standard, vehicle dynamics integrated management system which incorporates ABS, EBD (electronic brake force distribution) and brake assist.

Other safety features include blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning system pedestrian sensing safety bonnet.

Combined with a 256W Pioneer 10-speaker audio system cranked up to 50 (as experienced by myself) and you have yourself the ultimate adrenaline rush.

Immerse yourself in the luxury that is Lexus - it's hard not to deny anything less when you're behind the wheel of the RC 350.

The interior is based on simple Lexus philosophy - anticipate human needs, then match them with intuitive technology.

The high resolution 7-inch display screen is situated in such a way that it minimises your need to change your line of sight.

RC's interior is as intuitive as it is attractive with an ultrasonic sensor that detects movement within the cabin to provide you excellent security.

Lexus Remote Touch (LRT) helps you control systems such as audio, climate and satellite navigation from one source rather than having to reach around the dashboard for individual switches.

RC satellite navigation system features a speed limit display that shows the legal speed limit of the road you're on while Real Junction View uses realistic graphics to show upcoming junctions.

Kick back in the lap of luxury and take it all in with temperature controlled ergonomic sports-style seats, sunroof and Bluetooth to gloat to your friends about your ride.

Enhance your driving experience with the new Lexus RC 350.

For more information or to test drive the sports car see Michael Schafer at Lexus of Rockhampton Today.
