Lexus unveils new RC F and RC F Track Edition

This post was originally published on this site

Changes to the RC F’s exterior styling include redesigned headlight clusters with integrated daytime running lights, while a new vent at the bottom of the front grille, reshaped bumper and new tail-lights most clearly differentiate this from the old model.

The RC F range now features the RC F Track Edition, a lighter, stiffer version of the standard car that offers driving enthusiasts “the ability to impress on the track and off”.

Developed in conjunction with Lexus’s Super GT and IMSA race teams, the Track Edition features a number of modifications aimed at maximising aerodynamic efficiency and enhancing handling performance. 

A redesigned carbonfibre front splitter and spoiler are said to offer improved steering response and up to 26kg additional downforce over the standard model, while weight savings of between 70kg and 80kg have been achieved with carbon-ceramic brake discs, carbonfibre body panels, titanium exhaust components and lightweight BBS alloy wheels. 

The Track Edition will be available in white or a bespoke matt grey exclusive to the model. A red leather interior with carbon trim and Alcantara seat accents is fitted as standard. 

Production of the RC F and RC F Track Edition will begin in March, with prices and specifications set to be announced nearer the time. The current RC F is available from £61,310.
