Presenting The Lexus RC F And GS F 10th Anniversary Editions

If you want limited editions vehicles, there will be a price to pay. If you want the anniversary editions of the Lexus RC F and GS F, the brand’s sport-tuned and performance vehicles, you might have to sell a kidney… or two. Kidding aside, the F sub-brand is celebrating its 10th year anniversary since the debut of the IS F in 2008.

When the IS F debuted a decade ago, it was a direct competition to the tried and tested BMW M3. That was packing a V8 engine, but it was soon followed by the LFA, RC F coupe, and GS F sedan that are all powered by a V-10 machine.

The two anniversary editions are called the RC F and the GS F and there will only be 240 RC Fs in America and 100 GS Fs. That’s how exclusive these two editions are going to be.

Both cars will be finished off with matte Nebula Grey paint, 19-inch black BBS wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, and Brembo brakes with blue calipers. The RC F has blue leather seating with white accents up front and blue accents on the shift knob, steering wheel, and instrument panel cover.

On the other hand, the GS F also gets blue leather seating both for the front and rear passengers and driver. There are also blue carbon-fiber accents, blue suede on the dashboard, and blue seat belts. It will also have blue leather on the steering wheel, console, and shift knob.

Overall, the two cars will get that elegant black-and-blue combination that’s a favorite for most sports and performance vehicles.

These two vehicles are still going to be powered by a naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine that can produce 467 horsepower. That power is sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, and both cars will come with a torque vectoring differential.

These special edition models should arrive later this year.

2016 Lexus GS F Is All About Power and Aggressive Styling

Lexus coming out with its list of F-Sport, F cars and the RC coupe are proof enough that it wants to distant itself from merely being dolled-up Toyotas. The introduction of the 2016 Lexus GS F brings more evidence that it wants a luxurious sedan with an aggressive appearance that is far beyond anything Lexus has created in the past.

According to Top Speed, the GS F is Lexus’ answer to the BMW M5 and the Cadillac CTS-V—cars in the segment with loads of horsepower and elegant styling. The GS F is based on the standard Lexus GSsedan—the same on that came with a V-6 engine and hybrid option.

On the outside the Lexus GS F has a massive front grille, which it calls the Spindle Grille. With the F Sport or F-branded Lexus, you’ll get an even larger grille than the standard one. The grille stretches from the hood to the pavement, with no breaks between the upper and lower sections. There are two smaller inlets below the headlights, providing air to the front Brembo brakes.

The car packs LED daytime running lights that give off a dramatic white light at night. To finish off this aggressive styling, the GS F rides on 19-inch wheels with seemingly endless number of spokes. There are different colors within the wheel that add detail, making it one of the most unique wheels in the industry.

It comes in Molten Pear color—one that screams for attention. It may not be something everyone can learn to love easily, but it will certainly pique your interest.

Inside, the GS F is an iteration on the standard GS cabin. There’s the 12.3-inch Enform infotainment system and track pad, as well as the sport seats with contrast stitching that features heavy bolsters for extra support during hard corners. These seats also have limitless adjustments, making it the most comfortable of Lexus’ cabin.

The gauge cluster takes after the IS F. The cluster houses a large digital tachometer, analog speedometer and a large info screen that displays coolant temperature, oil pressure, to gear position, G-forces, traction graphs and infotainment information.

Under the hood, you’ll find a 5.0-liter V-8, all-aluminum engine that screams 7,300-rpm redline and produces 467 horsepower. This engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission with driving modes—Eco and Sport+.

The GS F will have a starting price of $84,440 with an option for the Mark Levinson audio system for an additional $1,380.
