Rule The Road In A Lexus RC F Fuji Speedway Edition
The Lexus RC F is a racing legend.
Last year, a team of Lexus RC F GT3 race cars won in the GTD class at the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship for “sprint” races. These races usually last up to three hours on the most challenging race courses across the U.S.A.
The Lexus RC F has also conquered the finest tracks around the world. Including the famous Fuji Speedway – home of Formula One’s Japanese Grand Prix.
The closest you can get to a race car legend is the limited-edition Lexus RC F Fuji Speedway Edition.
With just 50 examples available in the exclusive Electric Surge matte blue exterior color, the RC F Fuji Speedway Edition is powered by the 472-horsepower naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine. It is wrapped around by a body that is partially done in carbon fiber.
In addition to the usual RC F track-bred looks, Lexus adds a series of carbon fiber components, including the roof panel, rear bumper, lip and air dam front spoiler, fin rocker, door lower molding and retractable wing rear spoiler. The Fuji Speedway edition wears a set of 19-inch matte black wheels with 255/35ZR19 front, 275/35ZR19 rear Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tires. Inside, you will also find additional blue Carbon Fiber interior trim.
Mechanically, you will find a set of Brembo Carbon Ceramic brakes, titanium exhaust tips, and the standard F-tuned Adaptive Variable Suspension system.
The RC F Fuji Speedway Edition is not all about mechanical geekery and weight reduction. Inside, the cockpit is decorated with black and blue Alcantara-trimmed seats. You will also find Alcantara accents on the shift knob and steering wheel. F logo scuff plates and serialized badging add a finishing touch to this limited-edition RC F.
You will also be connected to the world, while you are keeping your RC F Fuji Speedway Edition from hitting the top speed of 168 MPH. There is Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa compatibility, connected to a large 10.3-inch, high-resolution split-screen multimedia display with full-screen map view. For added convenience, drivers can start their engine remotely with a smartwatch. And, to help them unlock a deeper appreciation of sound, the available 17-speaker, 835-watt Mark Levinson Premium Surround Sound Audio System enables music listening in its purest, highest fidelity.
