2019 Lexus RC F V8 / GS F V8 - Drive

    2019 Lexus RC F

    La RC F reprend le V8 5,0 litres atmo de l’ancienne IS-F, revu en profondeur pour délivrer 477 ch. Réactive dans l’absolu, sa boîte automatique à 8 vitesses reste un cran en dessous d’une boîte à double embrayage comme la DKG de BMW. Plus puissante que la BMW M4 (431 ch), la Lexus lui rend toutefois sept dixièmes sur le 1 000 m D.A. (23’’2) en raison d’un surpoids de 270 kg. La RC F se révèle malgré tout assez rigoureuse, précise et équilibrée.

    2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition

    Sometimes you don’t need a fancy name. Lexus cut the nonsense by naming the track edition of their RC F exactly that. Built using feedback from international Lexus GT race teams, the Track Edition is a limited-production version of the RC F with both styling and performance upgrades. Competitors in Super GT, Blancpain GT and IMSA decided what the RC F really needed was a serious diet. The Track Edition is over 70kg lighter than the standard car, with a new front splitter and fixed rear wing (both made from carbon-fibre), combining to produce substantially more downforce.
