2019 Lexus RC F Touches Down In The UK From £62,900

As of this week, the revised Lexus RC F can be purchased in the United Kingdom in one of four different specs, including the highly-appreciated Track Edition.

The entry-level RC F has a £62,900 ($81,730/€72,946) starting price, whereas the Carbon and Plus Pack models can be had from £69,900 ($90,825/€81,064) and £72,650 ($94,398/€84,253), respectively. Meanwhile, the Track Edition comes with a £79,900 ($103,819/€92,661) sticker price.

Power continues to come from the 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine, which retains its 464 PS (457 hp / 341 kW) and 520 Nm (384 lb-ft) of torque output. The intake has been revised, however, and the eight-speed automatic gearbox now features a higher final drive ratio, from 2.93 to 3.13.

The 2019 RC F features a new electronic launch control system as standard, which allows the car to accelerate to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.3 seconds. The Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, which have been designed specifically for this car from a special rubber compound with a unique profile and tread pattern, improve lateral grip and help reduce understeer in track conditions.

Elsewhere, the updated RC F has a small weight reduction and some stylistic changes on the outside, including the revised grille, new headlight design and different taillights.

Reflecting the model’s motorsport career is the RC F Track Edition, which has improved aerodynamics and performance, as well as additional weight saving. Standard gear includes the red leather interior with Alcantara accents, red carbon trim and two exterior color choices called Ultra White and Nebula Grey, with the latter being exclusive to this grade.
