The 2015 RC F has its design shared with the Lexus LFA supercar

Lexus Manila will be launching the 2015 Lexus RC F, the brand's high performance F coupe, very soon at an event at their dealership.

The 2015 RC F will be formally introduced by Lexus Manila, Inc. (LMI) on November 18, 2014, and will herald the arrival of the most powerful V8 engine that Lexus has ever produced.

Originally launched during the 2014 North American International Auto Show, the RC F coupe features a very aggressive design with elements like the sporty front, an active rear spoiler and a quad pipe exhaust system.

UPDATE: Local specifications and price

After we posted the original version of this story, we contacted Lexus Manila's Sales and Marketing Director, Spencer Yu, regarding the details about this all new high performance Lexus and what the Philippine-spec models will have.

He shared with us that the 2015 RC F was specced out by Lexus Manila, Inc. to have LED lights, aniline leather, the polished 19 inch allow wheels and other high end features. Also standard is a top of the line Mark Levinson audio system.

Powering the Philippine spec 2015 RC F is the 5.0-liter 32-valve V8. Unlike foreign examples which get 456 PS from the V8, the Philippine models will have a more powerful version of engine that makes 477 PS.

The gearbox will also be an 8-speed automaticm, though Yu also shared with AutoIndustriya.com that LMI's official units will not be getting the Torque Vectoring Differential (TVD), but will instead be fitted with a limited slip differential (LSD). LMI also specified local units to have the Brembo brake package.

As for the price, no more speculation is necessary:
