TORONTO, ON – The “F” is 10 this year, and to celebrate, Lexus introduces an exclusive anniversary edition of the RC F high-performance luxury coupe as part of its 2019 model line-up. “The RC F is performance engineered – from the track, up – to exceed the desires of even the most demanding driving enthusiast,” said Jennifer Barron, Director of Lexus in Canada. “Its powerful and sophisticated V8 combines with chassis and handling dynamics honed to deliver pulse-pounding excitement at every turn.”
Under the hood, relentless, no compromise engineering produced the heart of a lion: A naturally aspirated 5.0 litre V8 that delivers 467 peak horsepower, up to 389 lb-ft of torque, and a heartfelt tone that ranges from a throaty growl to a mighty roar. This performance-driven engine switches between Atkinson and Otto cycles to maximize power, torque and efficiency. To drive the rear wheels, it’s mated to an equally motivated transmission: a uniquely tuned eight-speed Sport Direct Shift transmission. Curbside, the 2019 RC F is instantly recognizable as an F model. The signature Lexus spindle grille with distinctive F series mesh pattern dominates from hood line to lower lip. Large air scoops flank the grille, while the aerodynamically sculpted form includes carefully tuned underbody and aero stabilizing fins. The RC F is offered in one, fully-equipped model with a choice of trim levels:
The 2019 Lexus RC F (starting MSRP: $87,350) features a power tilt/slide moon roof, the smart key system, push button start, water repellent door glass, power windows, electrochromatic rear view mirror, a driver’s seat memory system linked to the dual exterior mirrors, intuitive parking assist, and more. This model may be enhanced as follows: The 2019 Lexus RC F with Performance Package (starting MSRP: $95,050) adds a Torque Vectoring Differential, unique alloy wheels, painted brake calipers, a carbon fibre roof and active rear spoiler. This package does not include a moon roof.
The 2019 Lexus RC F 10th Anniversary Edition (starting MSRP: $98,800) is an exclusive, limited run model built on the Performance Package, adding an embossed roof and sport-tuned performance dampers. This edition is offered in a unique matte grey exterior with black wheels and blue brake calipers, blue carbon ornamentation, and blue leather on the steering wheel and seats.
