Lexus RC F Track Edition Proves That Second Best Can Be Just as Impressive

The most anticipated vehicle debut at the 2019 North American International Auto Show is definitely the 2020 Toyota Supra, but Toyota Motor North America has something even sportier planned for Detroit: the Lexus RC F Track Edition. This souped-up version of the standard RC F will go into limited production for the 2020 model year, and after the LFA supercar, the Lexus RC F Track Edition promises to be the fastest, most powerful Lexus ever built.

Although details are slim, such a claim puts the hardcore Lexus RC F Track Edition in good company with the LFA rated 562 horsepower and the current runner-up performer, the Lexus LC 500. Chances are, the RC F Track Edition will get a retuned version of the 5.0-liter V8 engine shared by both the LC 500 and the regular RC F. It should be about as close to a street legal Lexus RC F GT racecar as you can buy.

Before we get to see the Toyota/Lexus one-two punch of high-performing sports cars at the Detroit Auto Show, Lexus has given us a teaser image of the RC F Track Edition revealing the carbon fiber wing with the "F" logo patched into the design. Recent spy shots also suggest that this new RC F model will get retuned styling elements for both aerodynamics and cooling, a carbon fiber hood, and a larger wheel/tire/brake combination.
