Lexus RC F Sport Black Line Bringing Stealthy Looks To New York

Adjust Comment Print

One of the sharpest-looking cars in Lexus's lineup, the 2018 Lexus RC coupe adds a touch more elegance with the limited production Black Line special edition.

Lexus will use the 2018 New York Auto Show to debut its new F Sport Black Line Special Edition. A limited run of 650 units will be available this spring at dealerships nationwide.

The gloss exterior paint color will be matched by a set of matte black wheels and orange or black brake calipers.

Inside, orange stitching is found on the seats, dashboard, and doors. In addition, the Black Line has a unique wood-trimmed steering wheel featuring a shade of black handcrafted by a 200-year-old Japanese calligraphy shop.

However, some state officials have pointed out that it could save taxpayers $3.2 billion over the next two decades. The raises would go back to 1.5 percent once the system is at least 90 percent funded, under the proposal.

All of the Black Line coupes also will be equipped with such upgrades as a moonroof, parking assist system, LED headlights, navigation and a Mark Levinson premium audio system. As its name suggests, the RC Black Line features black accents on the grill and windows, foregoing the standard chrome trim.

The Black Line special edition is available on all four versions of the RC coupe. The 3.5-liter V-6 F Sport models will start at $54,750 for the RC 300 with all-wheel drive; $55,655 for the RC 350; and $57,115 for the RC 350 with all-wheel drive. The base RC 300 comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine.

Though the V8-powered, performance-ready RC F will not get the Black Line edition treatment, the special edition auto is available for all versions of the 2018 Lexus RC F Sport.
