Just ahead of the Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS), images have leaked of Lexus‘s much rumored BMW M4-battling coupe. The RC-F will be the Japanese luxury brand’s most powerful V8-powered vehicle ever, and is the latest from Lexus burgeoning F-Line of performance vehicles. Although the RC-F was not slated to be revealed until next Tuesday, January 14th, once the images leaked Lexus has released official pics seen here. Industry rumors predict a brand new 5.0-liter V8 that produces 460 bhp, enabling a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.5 seconds and estimated 186 mph (300 km/h) top speed. Expect plenty of carbon fiber, as well as an active rear spoiler. More info coming later, for now enjoy the beautiful sculpted lines, signature spindle grill and handsome L-Finesse design language of Lexus Design Chief Tokuo Fukuichi.
