Previously available only in the guise of the V-6 powered RC 350 or a V-8-powered RC F, the Luxus RC Coupe will soon be offered in the four-cylinder RC 200t and RC 300 AWD. The former is powered by 2.0-liter turbo-four, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and good for 241 hp and 258 lb-ft. At 7.3 seconds, the 0-60 mph sprint time is slower than the RC 350 but makes up for it with better fuel economy, rated at 22/32 mpg city/highway. Its RC 300 AWD counterpart features a detuned version of the 3.5-liter V-6 from the RC 350, connected to a six-speed automatic transmission and good for 255 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. Look for the vehicles to hit showrooms this fall.
