It is hard to believe it has been 10 years since Lexus launched their F division. Their high-performance lineup debuted at the 2008 Chicago auto show, so in a press release yesterday they announced a special lineup for this year’s show in a press release yesterday. The 2019 GS F and RC F 10th anniversary special editions will be unveiled at the show.
They will be finished in Nebula Gray, the first matte paint since the wild LFA supercar. Multiple coats were applied to make sure it stands the test of time. Matte finishes can actually be polished to shine by automatic car washes and ill-fitting car covers. Blue brake calipers are seen behind 19″ black wheels. They are wearing Michelin PS2 tires for the ultimate in grip.
Only 240 examples of the RC F will be built, this represents the number of Lexus dealers in the US. They will have carbon fiber interior accents, and blue leather throughout. An embossed headliner and special edition badges round out the package. Under the hood is the familiar 5.0 liter V8 making 467 horsepower and 389 lb-ft of torque.
The GS F is limited to 100 cars, but it has blue leather on the back seats also. It does without the embossed headliner, but the blue trim remains in all the soft spots. The same V8 and automatic transmission are shared between both cars. The GS F arrives with a torque-vectoring differential while the RC F gets a traditional Torsen locker. Additional options will need to be purchased to unlock the anniversary editions, and pricing has yet to be determined. As soon as it is, you will see it here first on Autofluence.
