The Car's the Noir: 2018 Lexus RC F Sport Black Line Bound for NYC

2018 Lexus RC F Sport coupe Black Line Special Edition

CARS.COM — Lexus is bringing a blacked-out limited edition of its 2018 RC F Sport coupe to the 2018 New York International Auto Show later this month, along with its headliner for the show, the 2019 Lexus UX small crossover unveiled recently at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. The Black Line Special Edition appearance package will be available on F Sport versions of the 2018 RC 300 and RC 350. The F Sport package already adds sportier trim and interiors than the regular RC coupes, along with a sport-tuned suspension. Lexus will build 650 Black Lines in all, and they'll go on sale in the spring.

The Black Line cars will be painted Caviar black or Atomic Silver, and sport black chrome trim and matte-black wheels with orange or black brake calipers. Inside, there's orange contrast stitching on the seats, dashboard and doors. And a special wood-trimmed steering wheel features shades of black that Lexus says were created by the ink artisans of a two-century-old Japanese calligraphy shop.

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.

The Black Line Special Edition versions are available for all four RC F Sport rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models, with prices starting at $52,725 for the base turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder RC 300 F Sport. 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.
