Although we've been more than happy to bring you a slew of photos of the all-new Lexus RC and RC F live from the 2014 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS), we always look forward to seeing the cars on the street.
As I've written before, it makes a BIG difference to see a product out of the harsh lighting and relative to other vehicles on the road.
Well, we've gotten lucky with the all-new Lexus RC350, which was spotted in SoCal. That makes sense as Toyota's operations are based in Torrance.
This particular car was finished in a bright blue and was posted by our friends at Kaizen Factor. Although they seem to think it's an RC F in disguise, I actually think it looks precisely like the dark red car seen in Detroit and making its way around the auto show circuit.
The boys and girls over at Kaizen Factor point out the wheels and the foglights embedded into the spindle grille. Well, wheels aren't a big deal and if you look at our shots from Detroit, the car has the same foglight treatment.
What they DIDN'T spot was the F Sport badge that appears to be taped up on the front fenders. Likely this is just a production RC350 F Sport, which shouldn't be out of the question as there is an IS350 F Sport for sale right now.

Some photos of a new 2015 Lexus RC 350 surfaces from an unknown source in Ultrasonic Blue Mica. At first glance it looks like the 2015 RC F which recently debuted in Detroit last month, but that particular car and the RC 350 in red are currently on display at the Chicago Auto Show. This mystery RC 350 which was spotted in Southern California yesterday sporting Michigan manufacturer plates. The car is a bit confusing as it has the qualities of an F SPORT model because of the color, but it has some quirky features highlighted below. Is this a test mule of the RC F disguised as a regular RC 350? Perhaps this is a preview of a future RC 350 F SPORT? Lexus has not announced an F SPORT model for the RC, but it’s probable we may hear something at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.
