2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition: Everyday is Track Day
You probably watched the Rolex 24 Hour race from Daytona a few weeks ago. You’re probably thinking that the Lexus RC F would be great to take to a track day at Las Vegas Motor Speedway or out to Willow Springs.
Coming soon is a track-ready RC F that is influenced by our RC F GT3 race car – but would look awesome on the street.
Coming later this year is the 2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition. It is the stuff made for track day heroes.
Track Developed for Street Credibility
This is no ordinary RC F. It does get a horsepower bump for 2020 to 472, with a 5 pound-foot increase in torque in the 5.0-liter naturally-aspired V8. But there is much more.
There is a new front aerodynamic splitter made of carbon fiber, designed to increase front-end downforce for better grip and more precise steering. The hood is carbon fiber, as are the side aerodynamic aids and the fixed rear spoiler. The latter replaces the active spoiler with its fixed position on top of the trunk to reduce drag and adding downforce in the rear.
With the addition of these carbon fiber elements, the Track Edition weighs 176 pounds less than the normal RC F model.
The RC F Track Edition is not just about carbon fiber aerodynamics and weight savings. The brakes receive an upgrade with Brembo carbon ceramic rotors, designed for weight reduction, as well as to withstand extreme heat cycling during performance driving. BBS supplies a set of 19-inch forged alloy wheels, inspired by the racing wheels on the RC F GT3 race cars.
The result is a possible 0-60 MPH spring time in under four seconds -– 3.96 seconds, to be exact.
Which 2020 RC F Would You Choose?
If the carbon fiber aerodynamics aids and fixed spoiler aren’t your bag, you can still get the normal 2020 RC F with the increased horsepower and torque as in the Track Edition. There will also be more colors available on the normal RC F than the Track Edition.
Lexus of Las Vegas Vegas will see the arrival of the 2020 RC F and the Track Edition later this year. If you are looking for that adrenaline rush from a track-inspired Lexus, contact us to become one of the first in Las Vegas to get one. The track awaits!
