The 2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition is $31,900 more expensive than the standard car. Lexus has announced the US prices for both.
It’s not the car from the upcoming Men in Black: International. For some odd reason, we find ourselves repeating that line, in every post we put up about the Lexus RC F. Now that the customary opening line has been delivered, let’s move to the pricing news. The 2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition will set you back by $96,650 and the standard LC F will leave a hole in your pocket at $64,750.
That’s a neat $31,900 price difference that we’re talking about here. So what do you get for the premium paid? Well, lots of carbon-fiber is a good place to start with. The roof, hood, rear spoiler, front splitter and even the partition behind the rear seats come in the lightweight material.
The Lexus RC F Track Edition is obsessed with weight reduction that there are more measures in place to shave off a good number of pounds. The brakes on the limited edition model are Brembo carbon ceramic brake rotors and six-piston Brembo calipers. They are lighter than the units employed in the regular Lexus RC F. Does the weight-reduction drill stop there? Not really, as a titanium muffler and exhaust pipes, 19-inch BBS forged-alloy wheels and lighter suspension components take off a few more pounds.
Both cars share the same engine with the exact same level of tuning. 472 hp and 395 lb-ft channeled through an 8-speed automatic transmission aren’t bad numbers at all and as the Track Edition is lighter by 176 pounds, these figures will make it a BMW M4 challenger to watch out for.
As for the BMW M4, t coupe retails in the $67k-72k price bracket. It churns out 425 hp of power in the standard model and 444 hp with the Competition package. It’d be interesting to see the RC F and M4 in a comparison test.
