The all new Lexus RC Coupe will launch in 2014, and will be available in red paint that brings in more brightness and contrast thanks to a new painting process.
The process uses a two color base of both silver and red and the red paint is achieved through a process of using four base coats of paint which are then baked twice.
To prepare the color, the factory starts with a base coat of silver and then applies a clear coat that is covered by a translucent red coat, which is topped with another clear coat. The four coats of paint are then baked twice to set the color.
