LEXUS will show two versions of its new RC concept at the Tokyo motor show later this month.

And it will reveal its European powertrains for the 2dr coupe next year.

At Tokyo it will show the RC 350 (3.5-litre V6) and the RC 300h hybrid which combines an electric motor with a 2.5-litre engine.

The four-seat cabin has wood trim and a 7in central console screen for sat nav and infotainment.

The RC is 4,695mm long, 1,840mm wide, 1,395mm tall and its wheelbase is 2,730mm.

The seats are made using the same technique for moulding racing seats.

Meanwhile, Lexus will also show a new 2-litre turbocharged version of its LF-NX luxury compact crossover concept at Tokyo.

The concept was first shown at Frankfurt in September but the new turbo model will have a lower centre of gravity and a front spoiler to give it a sportier look.
