Officially name the new orange Lexus RC F colour in the UK

The eagerly-anticipated Lexus RC F is poised to set the performance car market alight when it arrives in the UK, and it’ll be offered in a dazzling orange metallic exterior paint option, which we need your help naming.

We’re inviting you to submit suggestions for what the unique shade should be called on our Facebook page. All you need to do is leave your name idea as a comment below, or on this Facebook post and we’ll then choose our favourite and officially name the colour after it in the UK.

Unveiled at this year’s Detroit motor show, RC F will tear up the tarmac with the most powerful V8 engine ever engineered for a Lexus production model under the skin. The 5.0-litre 32-valve unit, developed specifically for the RC F, is expected to produce more than 450bhp and 520Nm of torque.

In a similar vein to the hallowed LFA supercar, RC F will make use of lightweight carbon fibre parts, while an eight speed direct-shift transmission, an active rear wing and a torque vectoring differential feature, to ensure RC F is technically advanced.

The RC F will go on sale in the UK in 2015, but is already making a big impact on the racetrack, securing podium finishes in this year’s Japanese Super GT series. You can find out more about  RC F here.

  1. on Dartmoor, Britain smallest bird builds a nest the size of a grapefruit, have 12 to 14 young and fly’s so fast that its almost red color, when flying looks like a shooting flame that goes past you with a quite hum and looks orange to red, and it is called the fire crest. And that is the color it reminds me of and as Lexus are known for their build quality, large capacity and smooth engine that generates same smooth hum as it goes past. I think with these qualities of both bird and machine will give you the name of the bird FIRE CREST for the color, perhaps the car itself. Lexus Fire Crest
