2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition Adds Bite to RC Lineup

The Lexus RC F is a worthy performance car, but it’s not a bona fide track rocket. The new Lexus RC F Track Edition unveiled today in Detroit, is.

The 2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition launched next to a refreshed Lexus RC F. Both feature more power and improved dynamics although Lexus makes a point of mentioning that both models are still intended for daily driving and performance driving. The Track Edition is no exception.

The RC F sticks with the normally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 that sends its power to the rear wheels through an 8-speed automatic gearbox that now has a higher final drive ratio for improved accelerations from a stop.

Power increases by a modest 5 hp to 472 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque. New Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires designed specifically for the 2020 RC F along with an improved suspension make sure you stay glued to the road.

The main thing about the RC F Track Edition is that its lighter by nearly 80 kg and its aero is improved over the “normal” RC F. A front splitter, and carbon fiber rear wing increase downforce by 58 pounds.

On the flip side, the RC F Track Edition boasts the best power-to-weight ratio of its competitors. Exclusive BBS wheels contribute to making the RC F Track Edition lighter, but overall weight is still a fairly heavy 3,782 pounds.

“The new RCF and the Track Edition, in particular, benefit from constant development since their original launch. With the latest improvements, these models help further distinguish the F brand by offering fast, durable, highly capable performance cars that rely on a range of technologies to help make their performance accessible to drivers of all skill levels,” said Koji Sato, Executive Vice President, Lexus International.
