2020 Lexus Rc F Track Edition Exterior – 2020 Lexus Rc F Track Edition
Maybe our expectations were too high. We saw its blah specs at the Detroit Auto Show in January, but you aloof never apperceive until you get abaft the wheel. And while there’s a lot to like actuality — this is the best able and track-capable Lexus aback the LFA supercar was launched in 2011 — it’s bound credible that Lexus’ engineers were captivated aback from authoritative the RC F Clue Edition what they capital to make.
The RC F Clue Edition uses the aforementioned artlessly aspirated 5.0-liter V8 (2UR-GSE) that powered the IS F auto in 2008 and the accepted RC F aback 2015. It’s the agent Lexus additionally uses in the LC 500 auto and the GS F sedan. The company’s austere warrantability standards beggarly this agent is bound to 500 hp, said Yuuichi Tsurumoto, the arch architect on the RC F Clue Edition and the man amenable for all Lexus F models. So supercharging the agent was out of the question. Increasing the V8’s displacement to 5.5-liters or added was explored, but again the RC F Clue Edition would accept been accountable to a gas auto tax, and that too was accounted unacceptable. The annoyance in Tsurumoto’s articulation was clear.
And while the 5.0-liter’s achievement has been added hardly for 2020, up to 472 application ( 5) at 7,100 rpm and 395 pound-feet of torque ( 6) at 4,800 rpm, the RC F Clue Edition doesn’t get any added ability than the accepted RC F. Both versions of the auto additionally abide to use an Aisin-supplied eight-speed automatic, which is about unchanged.
Lexus is alone activity to body “around 400” RC F Clue Editions, and it will acceptation aloof 50 into the United States. That’s all. Aloof 50 cars. And they’re activity to amount $97,675 including a $1,025 destination fee. Who cares about a gas auto tax on such an acute bound run of a $100,000 branch hot rod?
In the age of 797-hp Redeyes and 640-hp Cadillacs, the 472-hp RC F Clue Edition may not complete like it would be quick, but it is. With its new barrage ascendancy and beneath 3.13:1 rear-end ratio, Lexus says it can dart to 60 mph in 3.97 seconds. That’s aloof a tenth or two off the achievement of the LFA. Unfortunately, it’s additionally alone two tenths quicker than the accepted RC F, which Lexus says now hits 60 mph in 4.2 seconds.
Launch ascendancy is accessible alone in Sport mode. The arrangement is activated with a button apparent “Launch” on the coupe’s console, and it allows you to rev the agent to aloof 1,800 rpm, which is lower than abounding agnate systems out there. Tsurumoto says that’s area the V8 makes 150 lb-ft of torque, which is all the rear tires can handle after activity up in smoke.
Honestly, it’s added fun to balloon about the barrage control, shut off the absorption ascendancy and bonfire the coupe’s 19-inch Michelins through aboriginal and some of added gear. Although that will get actual big-ticket actual quickly. Lexus formed with Michelin for a appropriate adaptation of its Pilot Sport 4 S tire. They’re sized 255/35R19 in advanced and 275/35R19 in the rear, and the accepted RC F get them too.
Michelin’s stickier Sport Cup 2 would absolutely add grip, but those tires don’t accomplish able-bodied in wet weather, and Tsurumoto was asked to body the ultimate circadian disciplinarian than can be tracked on the weekends. He recommends buyers get a stickier set of elastic army on an added set of auto for clue days.
Lexus uses actual little aluminum in the RC F’s anatomy and structure, and as a result, it has continued been criticized for actuality adipose compared to its German competition. For 2020, the accepted RC F drops about 55 pounds, and the Clue Edition, which gets a carbon cilia roof and hood, drops addition 122 pounds. On the track, it does feel lighter and added tossable, but don’t get too excited: At 3,781 pounds, the Clue Edition is still a porker.
The majority of the weight accumulation are from the Clue Edition’s Brembo carbon bowl anchor rotors. They barber 48.5 pounds from the car and assignment with six-piston Brembo calipers in the front. They additionally accomplish appreciably bigger and with added bendability on the clue than the animate units on the accepted RC F. Pedal feel and accentuation are excellent, and calefaction absorb isn’t a botheration on the Thermal Club’s 1.8-mile circuit, which is awfully adamantine on brakes.
Other weight accumulation are beneath significant. The carbon cilia roof and awning save about 20 pounds. Replacing the RC F’s retractable rear addle-brain with a anchored carbon cilia rear addition increases downforce and saves 6.4 pounds. The Clue Edition’s artificial BBS auto are anniversary 1.5 pounds lighter than the accepted car’s wheels. A lighter rear bonanza saves 1.1 pounds, and alveolate half-shafts save 4 pounds after sacrificing strength. Under the hood, the Clue Edition uses a abate air conditioning compressor, new aluminum bounce abutment brackets, and shaves 1.5 pounds of antithesis aluminum from the base of the assimilation manifold.
A added 15 pounds is adored by the Clue Edition’s titanium mufflers and adapter pipes, from which the V8 thunders a actual acceptable roar. The bankrupt tips are stainless animate and coated in a dejected accomplishment for a altered look. In Sport mode, Lexus uses the audio arrangement to dispense and enhance that barrage central the cabin. Despite the weight reduction, the engineers affirm the car’s weight antithesis is absolutely the same, with about 54 percent of the coupe’s weight over its advanced tires.
When we ask Ysurumoto why he didn’t advance that antithesis by affective the array to the trunk, he action and says, “Very acceptable question.” Like acutely abounding added elements in the RC F Clue Edition, it seems his administration wouldn’t let him go far abundant with that either.
It’s additionally hasty how little the abeyance has been afflicted on the Clue Edition. The RC F’s springs and amplitude confined were agitated over untouched. The dampers were stiffened, some in the Normal setting, added in Sport , but it isn’t a abolitionist access in either compression or rebound. That said, on the track, the Lexus does feel angry bottomward and secure. Mid-corner bumps and annoyance don’t agitated its chassis. It’s accessible to aces your band and authority it. Although we didn’t drive the car on the street, it feels like it would be a adequate circadian for an enthusiast driver.
Some added baby changes were fabricated to access acknowledgment and abate understeer. The council arbor is army with 150-percent stiffer bushings that abide bend in adamantine cornering, which can affect the toe of the advanced tires. Stiffer rear subframe bushings abate camber bend changes of the rear wheels. The rear agent arise bushing is additionally stiffer.
Throttle acknowledgment is bluff than afore acknowledgment to a redesigned airbox with added breeze and a abate but beneath akin air filter. A accessory in the system, which increases aggregate and sound, now opens at 2,800 rpm. That’s 800 rpm eventually than before, although we’re not abiding this is accordant as abounding RC F owners adapt the accessory to break accessible all of the time.
More important, the engineers accept additionally remapped the burke acknowledgment ambit to be added beeline throughout the pedal stroke. It’s beneath brusque than before, which gives you bigger adequation and added absolute control.
“Controlling the agent with the burke was the goal,” says Tsurumoto. “We capital to accomplish it easier to use the burke to ascendancy the car. It’s the appearance of active I prefer.”
These changes accept bargain understeer. The advanced end still pushes if you overcook a bend entry, but it’s balmy and should prove to be a acceptable assurance net on a bound abundance road. Once the advanced end bites and you get aback to the throttle, the Clue Edition can be steered with its throttle. And actual precisely, acknowledgment to a added aggressively acquainted Torsen differential. Big drifts appear easily. Shut off its adherence control, and there’s abundant ability to backpack long, smoky, full-lock powerslides.
Overall the new RC F Clue Edition is an absorbing high-performance car. It’s accessible to drive quickly, it can handle a assault at the racetrack, and it’ll accomplish any disciplinarian smile. It’s aloof not abolitionist enough. It’s aloof not the car it can be, or should be. It isn’t altered abundant from the accepted RC F to absolve its Clue Edition name or its ample added cost.
If accumulated would aloof alleviate the reigns, Tsurumoto and his aggregation of engineers could accept congenital article absolutely exclusive, article absolutely special. A absolute ultra-performance limited-edition RC F archetypal for a baddest few hardcore enthusiasts, one with a appropriate powertrain, acute tires and alike added advancing weight savings. Instead, the RC F Clue Edition comes off as a adored $32,000 Sport Package.
It’s unfortunate. Lexus can do better.
