Lexus engineers are currently testing a camouflaged RC F prototype at the Nürburgring.

The changes to the car are subtle which suggests we might be looking at a prototype for a facelifted version of the rear-wheel-drive luxury performance coupe.

New elements include the front lip spoiler, revised shape for the front intakes, and rear bumper diffuser insert.

Lexus’ RC range, including the RC F model, was introduced for 2015. An update for the 2019 model year is thus looking likely as this represents the midpoint in the car’s life cycle.

There are also rumors Lexus might be in the early stages of developing a hotter version of the car, one possibly referencing the brand’s Gazoo Racing motorsport department.

The current RC F is a sporty cruiser with decent performance when you need it. It’s a bit on the heavy side, though, weighing in at 3,958 pounds, or more than the all-wheel-drive Audi RS 5. The only car in the class that’s heavier is Mercedes-AMG’s C63 Coupe, but the AMG benefits from much more torque.

The current RC F has a 5.0-liter V-8 with 467 horsepower and 389 pound-feet of torque. The C63 Coupe has 469 hp and 479 lb-ft in standard form and 503 hp and 516 lb-ft in C63 S form.

We’re expecting this updated RC F to go on sale in 2018, as a 2019 model. Stay tuned for updates in the meantime.
