For all the accomplishments Lexus has achieved since it broke into the luxury market scene in the mid 1980s, it still has trouble coming up with names for its paint colors. How else can you explain the company’s attempts to ask fans what to name the orange paint on the Lexus RC F Coupe ?
Ok, we’re busting Lexus’ chops here a little because if it really wanted to, it could come up with a name for this orange shade pretty quickly. But to its credit, the company wants to get its fans involved, sort of like giving them a say on company decisions.
Up until now, the RC F sports coupe has only worn a striking blue paint, but Lexus is adding this orange color into the mix. The bright shade is still unnamed, so that’s where we all come into the picture.
A quick look at Lexus’ Facebook page reveals a large number of impressive recommendations already posted. We especially liked Tangering Flame, Sunset Rage, and Fireburst, among other entries. But as far as what our suggestion is, how about Orange Symphony?
It’s not the catchiest of names, but it does reflect the fiery balance of an aggressive sports car with an aggressive color to match.

Lexus unveiled the RC F at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show — a few months after the standard RC sports coupe made its world debut. Set to take on the BMW M4, the RC F looks every bit the part of an aggressive sports car with mean intentions.
While it does bear the standard look of the RC coupe, the RC F distinguishes itself with the usual F elements, like new front and rear bumpers, larger air intakes and a sports exhaust system with stacked trapezoidal quad-outlet tailpipes.
Under its hood, the RC F gets an all-new, 5.0-liter, 32-valve, V-8 engine that delivers more than 450 horsepower and more than 383 pound-feet of torque. Lexus announced the new RC F will be faster than the IS F, meaning that the 0-to-60 mph sprint time should be made in less than 4.5 seconds. Top speed is limited to 168 mph.
