Lexus has revealed the second in a series of teaser images for the BMW M4-rivalling RC-F coupe

Lexus has released yet another teaser image of a ‘new addition to the F portfolio’, believed to be the high-performance RC-F. The  coupe will debut at the Detroit motor show in January and will be tackling the BMW M4 head on.

Like the first teaser image, the second doesn’t give too much away. This time we can see the model will be fitted with a striking bonnet vent and the manufactures’ trademark spindle grille. Also noticeable is the two-part LED headlights, identical to the standard RC coupe.

Under the bonnet a a 5.0-litre V8 developing around 455bhp is expected, there’s also the possibility the engine could also use cylinder-deactivation to shut down four-cylinder on light throttle loads.

There's no word on price yet for the new performance flagship but expect to pay around £65,000 when the new model arrives in late 2014.
