2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition


We have always known Lexus to be a car maker which has believed in offering comfortable and soft vehicles and it is has a rich track record in this. The Lexus has quite a few makes to its credit including the RX crossover and ES Sedan. However, they perhaps want to change that perception and the first steps might have started with the launch of LFA supercar. It gave a feeling that Lexus was trying to break into the sports-luxury brand market. The 2020 Lexus RC F track edition could be a step in this direction. However, it is still not clear as to what exactly Lexus has in its mind. Nonetheless, there are quite a few car lovers who are excited about this launch.

The 2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition Exterior And Design

This vehicle is basically designed for those rich people who would like to engage in some car-wars during the weekends. Though it was supposed to be the luxury-sports variant, Lexus might have preferred to go in for a back-to-basics approach. The main objective perhaps has been to ensure that it offers the best of driving pleasure and therefore the fundamentals have been taken care of.

It might come with 19-inch forged BBS wheels with a size of 19 inches. Furthermore, the tires will be Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, which have better durability, lateral grip in extreme condition than regular tires. The engine mounts might be stiffer. Further, it might also come with improved rear suspension and special steering bushings. This might improve turn-in feel apart from reducing under-steer fatigue.
There are two only color options for Track Edition: Ultra White and Matte Nebula Gray.

The Lexus RC F Track Edition 2020 Interiors

There is nothing much known about the interiors as of now. However, Lexus according to some inside reports is working hard to give this track edition an exclusive and different look from the inside. Furthermore, the coupe will most likely have a leather interior and it will also most probably be accompanied with Alcantara seat accents. It comes with red carbon trim on the dashboard and also the doors. Other than that, it is expected to have attractive infotainment and other facilities.

The dashboard according to many with digital features could be a big takeaway when this track edition eventually is available to customers. The vehicle should comfortably seat four and still have some decent space for cargo and luggage. The leg space both in the front and the rear seats are also likely to be quite comfortable.

Engine And Other Specifications

As far as the engine and other specifications are concerned, this car is likely to come with a normally aspirated V-8 engine of 5.0 liter. It most probably will have a revised intake box. This should add another 5 horsepower to the base engine. Totally it should be able to generate 472 horsepower and around 395 lb-ft of torque. It will most probably have an eight-speed automatic transmission with improved response.

However, there are some who believe that the final drive could be shorter when compared other such makes and models. With the help of an electronic launch control system, the vehicle is capable of reaching from 0 to 60 mph in 3.96 seconds and that is quite impressive according to car experts. It should be able to give reasonably good mileage in highway road conditions.

Launch Date

Though it is not very clear as to when this limited track edition will be launched, there are many who think that it should be in the market during the first quarter of 2020. The price is also not very clearly known but it should not be less than $65000 even for the basic model.
