Lexus GS F And RC F 10th Anniversary Editions Sport Car Wash-Durable Matte Paint

Chicago Auto Show, Lexus, Lexus GS F, Lexus RC F
Lexus will use the Chicago Auto Show to introduce the GS F and RC F 10th anniversary editions.

Designed to pay tribute to a decade of high-performance models, the cars will be equipped with a Nebula Gray matte exterior which has been designed to “withstand the average mechanized car wash without degrading the quality of the finish.” The cars will also be equipped with blue brake calipers and 19-inch wheels featuring a polished black finish.

The unique styling continues in the cabin as the RC F has blue leather front sport seats with white accents. Designers also installed an embossed headliner and blue accents on the steering wheel, shifter, and instrument panel hood.

The two-tone styling carries over to the GS F as the sedan is largely identical to its coupe counterpart. However, the model eschews the embossed headliner and gains blue seat belts and blue suede accents on the dashboard.

Both models will also come equipped with blue carbon fiber trim and a limited edition plaque.

The RC F is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces 467 hp (348 kW) and 389 lb-ft (526 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels via a limited slip differential. This setup allows the coupe to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds.

The GS F uses the same engine as the RC F but the additional weight means the sedan is slightly slower as the dash from 0-60 mph takes 4.5 seconds.

Lexus hasn’t released pricing but the company says production will be limited to 340 units. 240 of them will be RC Fs, while the remaining 100 will be GS F sedans.
