Our long-term 2015 Lexus RC F is an all new design from Lexus, but the door panel seems a little bit busy. There are a lot of different materials used in one small space, but how many are there exactly?

    in my opinion, the carbon fiber is the only material out of place. it certainly brings more attention to the variety of materials. if that surface were piano black, for ex, that door panel would look classy and sporty at the same time; certainly what they were aiming for.
  • The red and gray "leather" are lexus's "NuLuxe", correct? Aka vinyl. As much as I like the red color, I couldn't go with the top trim level being fake leather, when the non-F RC gets real leather.
  • I think it is absolutely gorgeous!
  • In LA tysalpha we do not call it vinyl.
    We call it vegan leather.

    Someone went way too overboard to the point of tackiness. We all have our opinion of what "luxury" is and IMO this is the equivalent of shag carpet toilet tank covers. Really ghetto.

    It's kind of a Frankenstein car under the skin too with parts from various other Lexus models.
  • That mish-mash of materials looks like an interior designer barfed on the door panel. And I still hate carbon fiber as a trim material. When it's used as purely decorative it looks tacky. Save it for structural pieces, where its awesome physical properties actually add value.

    The RC F gets real leather interior instead of NuLuxe.

    Having one just like the picture, I like it. Very well fit together. It's a sports car, not a LS or ES.
