This Track Edition Has a Name
The Lexus RC F is a beautiful sports car with a solid ride and handling, but traditionally its extra weight has made it slower than its rivals. For 2020, Lexus released the lighter and faster RC F Track Edition, but production was limited to just 50 units for the United States. Now Lexus is recreating some of that performance magic with another limited production RC F: the Fuji Speedway Edition. In addition to the weight reductions of the Track Edition, the new model adds a handful of design details unique to the Lexus performance coupe.
The 2021 Lexus RC F Fuji Speedway Edition is limited to just 60 units and incorporates carbon fiber to improve performance. It also benefits from a titanium exhaust and carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes. Lexus claims that the Special Edition takes 4.0 seconds to reach 100 km / h, which matches its estimate for the Track Edition. For comparison, the standard RC F is estimated to hit 60 mph from a stop in 4.2 seconds. Like the rest of the RC F lineup, the Fuji Speedway Edition comes equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces 472 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque.
Buyers can choose between two exterior colors: Cloudburst Gray and Arctic Blast Satin. This latest selection is a Lexus first and consists of white paint with a satin luster. Inside the cabin you’ll find red carbon fiber trim and red leather-trimmed seats with faux suede trim. Purchasing this special edition also entitles the owner of a limited production MSTR watch with red accents, as well as the Fuji Speedway and F logos.
Lexus also added some goodies to the regular RC F. For 2021, the V-8 Coupe benefits from a standard blind spot monitoring system with rear cross traffic alert, heated electrochromic exterior mirrors, driver’s side memory seat and Android Auto compatibility. A new satin trim is found inside the cabin.
