Lexus has thrown a host of updates to the RC F for 2020, and here is our take on their latest F-Series sports coupe. If you are curious as to what’s under the sheet metal, build your Lexus RC F here. First off, you will need to choose between the standard model and the RC F Track Edition. The difference of $31,900 includes carbon fiber hood, roof & rear spoiler, along with titanium exhaust. This all adds up to 176 lbs less than the base model.
Only 100 examples of the RC F Track Edition will be produced, and your color choices are Ultra White, or Matte Nebula Gray. The latter adds $3,100 to push the MSRP into six digits. Clicking on the other colors reverts the build back to the normal RC F.
Moving inside, the only interior offered on the RC F Track Edition is Circuit Red Alcantara with Red Carbon Fiber trim. And once again, picking any of the “available” colors below reverts your build to the base model car. This forces you to start over, so just play along with it.
On to the infotainment system, the Mark Levinson surround sound system spreads 835 watts across 17 speakers. In case you never heard of Mr. Levinson, his patents on sound became part of Harmon/Kardon in the early 90s. Needless to say, the system is reference quality. It is the only way your car will have navigation or a 10.3″ (non touchscreen) display.
The all-weather package adds headlight washers along with warmers for the windshield wipers for $130, no thanks. We’re getting close! A final set of options includes the triple-beam LED headlights for $1,160, and parking assist for $500. Having the best headlights always helps, and we can park ourselves.
In summary, our window sticker is $104,660 plus a delivery fee of $1,025. For that, we will receive a 472 horsepower V8 that is rated at 3.96 seconds to 60 mph. The 5.0L design has a 12.3 compression ratio. This delivers 395 lb-ft of torque at 4,800 rpm. It is EPA rated at 16 mpg city and 24 mpg highway for a combined 19 mpg. It is needless to say that each one is built to order, and it has the quality and attention to detail that Lexus is known for.
