Lexus RC F, GS F 10th Anniversary Editions Arrive With Hefty Premiums

It’s been ten years now since Lexus started offering its F-branded performance models. So it’s celebrating with two special editions, and they each carry a rather hefty premium.

The 10th Anniversary Editions are being offered in the US on both the RC F coupe and the GS F sedan, featuring matte gray paint, 19-inch black polished wheels, blue Brembo brake calipers, and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.

Inside they both feature blue leather upholstery with white accents. The special RC F’s cabin is further enhanced with an embossed headliner and blue-accented trim. And the GS F’s interior features carbon-fiber trim, leather, and suede trim all done up in the sub-brand’s signature blue.

Based as they are on the performance models, both pack 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 engines rated at 467 horsepower and 389 lb-ft of torque and mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. They also feature torque-vectoring rear differentials, Vehicle Integrated Dynamics Management system, and more to help get all that power down to the tarmac through the rear wheels alone.

Interested? You had better act fast, because Lexus will only offer 250 examples of the special-edition RC F, and 100 of the GS F in the US market. The coupe carries a sticker price of $80,810 (representing a whopping $16,160 premium over the standard model), while the sedan sells for $89,350 (or a relatively more reasonable $5,000 premium). For that extra dough, they come with the 10th Anniversary Package which would otherwise cost $9,000 on its own, and they also come with the optional Performance Package, Triple-Beam headlights, and Intuitive Park Assist systems.

    It seems the car has a matt paint, which you did not mention and can partially explain the price to pay.

    These cars couldn’t command a premium to begin with, and won’t fetch one for an anniversary edition either. Lexus has done poorly with its F cars, but I hope they continue the program even just for the sake of choice; though that is not good business.

    Wait 1 or 2 months and then get the $15k discount they all come with since Lexus cant sell any. Awesome cars, that are overpriced and easily out-closed by competitors.
