High-performance coupe Lexus RC F GT seen at the Nurburgring

Lexus RC F GT is a special performance coupe designed to ride on a race track.

Remember the concept of the Japanese coupe Lexus RC F GT, which was introduced in June 2015? Under the hood of this car was an atmospheric 5.0-liter V8 engine.


Lexus RC F GT is a more high-performance version of the model, it will be 363 kg lighter than a regular, mass-produced version. The fact is that Lexus RC F GT was created primarily for driving on a racing track.

For the sake of losing weight, the engineers at the Japanese automaker decided to manufacture many of the carbon fiber car parts. According to official figures, the total weight of the Lexus RC F GT is only 1,420 kg.

A couple of hours ago, our editorial staff had “spy” photos of the Japanese news. It is reported that the car was spotted at the legendary Nürburgring (Germany). The car is partially covered with camouflage film, but its carbon hood can be seen in almost all details. Separately, we also note the rear wing of a fairly large size, modified headlights and lights. Huge air intakes also got a new look.

Well, what about the observed new items under the hood? What is the maximum power of the V8 engine – all the same 468 horsepower and 527 Nm of torque? Even if these figures remain intact, the coupe will be fairly fast due to lower weight. A standard RC F weighing 1,795 kg overcomes the first hundred in 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 270 km / h.

Not so long ago, our automobile edition wrote that Lexus showed LS, RC, LS and UX prepared for SEMA.
