Lexus Celebrates 10 Years Of ‘F’ With Special RC F And GS F

Lexus is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the IS F bringing the firm’s ‘F’ sports models to the market with the launch of limited-edition versions of the both the RC F and GS F.

Both the special models have been equipped with performance shock absorbers that provide better handling, and lightweight titanium mufflers. Additionally, the RC F and GS F adopt select carbon fiber reinforced plastic parts as well as matte grey paint finishes.

Sticking with its more sports-oriented persona, the special-edition RC F has exposed carbon on the roof, hood, front splitter, side skirts, rear bumper and rear diffuser, making it look significantly more aggressive than a typical RC F. Additional exterior modifications include black wheels and blue brake calipers.

Inside, the two-door has been equipped with blue leather on the seats, steering wheel, transmission tunnel and gear selector. These parts are nicely complemented by blue contrast stitching and blue carbon fiber.

Like the 10th anniversary RC F, the GS F includes blue accents throughout its interior.

Sales of the two models will commence in Japan from the spring of 2018.

    A GS-F? whats the point if they are going to axed it soon?

    • WTF

      axe…..and alot of vehicles are given a special edition prior to be redesigned or discontinued….not sure how your comment makes any sense…..I would venture to say there are more models that fit that description than not

      • Bash

        Not sure if you understands my point tbh, the way i see; it is that car makers usually release a special edition for a successful model where -you know- they are sure it will sell. but the GS , regardless of how good it actually is, it doesn’t sell well and that is why they are going to axe it. i understand what you said, but it doesn’t make sense to me 🙂

    F = Failure!

      LFA is hardly a failure in terms of driving experience.

      • PK

        meh….

  • SteersUright

    Both cars outdated. RCF way too heavy for a proper sporting coupe, especially given the high-revving low-torque nature of that lovely V8.

  • Ary Wisesa

    In the era of superchargers and turbochargers, the existence of pretty capable normally aspirated engines feels good. Yeah, these cars don’t offer crazy HP and torques, but essentially they are very enjoyable and easy to live with. And as a bonus, their reliability will ensure their existence long after their rivals go to junkyards.

  • WTF

    The GS looks good the RC looks horrendous

  • Infinite1

    Under powered and heavy, hopefully Lexus learns

  • Mill0048

    Those interior treatments are great and a refreshing take on sporting luxury. I especially love the headliners.

  • Trackhacker

    F for F*** You lol….honestly the design language at Lexus is horrible lately.

  • KidRed

    They made it even uglier. Wow, WTF is wrong with the design department over in Japan?
