The introduction of highly praised Toyota Supra at Detroit Auto Show would have been enough to quench the thirst if fans. However, we are learning that Lexus has another huge surprise for us. They are set to introduce a new high performance model at this marquee event. This news was disclosed by Executive Vice President of sales at Toyota Motor North America, Bob Carter today during media luncheon. Dubbed as Lexus RC F Track Edition, it will make its debut at Detroit. Lexus RC F Track Edition will go on sale from spring.
Only a single and only teaser image of Lexus RC F Track Edition has been released for now. It showcases that it will flaunt a huge carbon fiber wing on top of the trunklid. Bob Carter also confirmed that Lexus RC F Track Edition will be street legal car and standard RC F would also be refreshed for 2020 model year. Till now, we have no information regarding Lexus RC F Track Edition or 2020 Lexus RC F. Nonetheless, Carter claimed that it would be fastest most powerful vehicle they have ever built with the exception of LF-A.
This gives us huge excitement considering current model was powered with 5.0 liter V8 engine that is rated at 467 horsepower and 389 pound-feet of torque. Incidentally, this model was introduced at 2014 Detroit Auto Show. Hence, there is a good chance Lexus RC F Track Edition will be more powerful.
