Listen up Lexus driving enthusiasts!
The Lexus RC F is turning 10 years old in 2019. To celebrate, Lexus introduced an exclusive anniversary edition of the RC F high-performance luxury coupe.
The new RC F is performance engineered, tested on some of the world’s most challenging race circuits to exceed expectations of even the most demanding driving enthusiasts.
We take a look at the Design & Styling, Performance & Handling, and Comfort, Technology, & Safety features of the 2019 RC F.
Design and Style
he RC F is celebrating 10 years with an aerodynamically sculpted design, paving the way for your best drive ever.
Beginning at the front, the RC F’s exterior is sculpted for optimum aerodynamics. The striking spindle grille dominates from the hood line to the lower lip while featuring the RC F’s exclusive mesh pattern.
From the trunk to the tires, the rear of the RC F is as impressive as the front! The rear spoiler is functional and cosmetic, deploying at higher speeds to smooth airflow over the roof and boost downforce for greater handling. The stacked trapezoidal quad-outlet tailpipes add to the impression of aggressive strength.
RC F 10th Anniversary Limited Edition Design
A decade of building performance-driven coupes that deliver a drive like no other is worth celebrating. That is why the 2019 Lexus RC F is made even more striking by its dynamic colour combinations.
Blue carbon ornamentation, a blue leather steering wheel, black wheels with blue brake calipers, and a unique matte exterior make the RC F stand out among the top sports cars for sale in Calgary.
Performance and Handling
While taking a look under the RC F’s hood, you’ll see that precise engineering produced a powerful engine. A 5.0 litre V8 engine delivers 467 peak horsepower and up to 389 lb.ft. torque.
The unique 8-speed Sports Direct Shift (SPDS) transmission offers manual control through steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. When not in Manual mode, the SPDS detects curves and automatically holds the lower gear to give optimal response when accelerating.
For even greater aerodynamic grip, choose the RC F’s Performance Package. At speeds of 80 km/h or higher, the wing automatically deploys to smooth airflow from the roof and ensure excellent downforce for greater handling stability. Now we know why Lexus boasts the RC F as “performance-driven”!
At speeds of 40 km/h and below, the spoiler is stowed in the RC F’s trunk lid, helping to enhance fuel efficiency.
