The new 2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition has been unveiled as the automaker’s best toy to take on a circuit. It features a revamped 5.0-liter V8 engine that now produces 472 horsepower (an increase of 5 hp) and 395 lb-ft of torque. Lexus notes that their new RC F Track Edition will complete a 0 to 60 mph sprint in just 3.96 seconds and have a top speed of 168 mph.

To make it track-ready, Lexus went above and beyond to make it formidable on any circuit. One of the most important aspects of any race car is that it’s as light as can be. For that, Lexus dropped the weight by 176 lbs when compared to the previous RC F, coming in with a total weight of 3,781 lbs.

Track cars need more than just a light weight, however. Brembo carbon ceramic brake rotors, six-piston Brembo calipers, 19-inch BBS forged alloy wheels, titanium muffler and connector pipes, carbon fiber roof, and a new aero package complete the track setup.

The 2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition price is set at $96,650 (dest. not included). Only two paints will be available: Ultra White and Matte Nebula Gray. Expect them to hit dealers soon.
