2020 Lexus RC F goes lighter with new Track Edition | Detroit 2019

[MUSIC] Lexus's RCF gets the mid cycle refresh treatment here at 2019 Detroit Auto Show. No I've always been a fan of Lexus's sport coupe, maybe not as much as the German competition, but it's always had it's charm. So, for 2020, we're looking at a horsepower of about 472 pony from its 5 litre v8. It's not a whole lot, but with revived gearing, it should be a little bit more responsive, thanks to a lower final drive. Now, if that's not responsive for you, there's also this, the new RCF track edition. Now this bad boys shaves about 176 pounds from its curb weight in the pursuit of performance. Now 55 of those pounds come from new 19 inch forged BBS wheels and carbon ceramic Brembo brakes. The rest of it comes from go faster goodies like a carbon fiber hood, a carbon fiber roof and more. In addition, there is a new carbon fiber wing out back that adds about 56 pounds of downforce, which is gonna help this bad boy stick it in the corners just a little bit more firmly. Now, the light weighting and the revised gearing and new launch control tuning make sure this thing hits 0 to 60 in under 4 seconds. Pretty impressive, and by the way, I'm also a huge fan of the new front end design and particularly, those new lights. You can expect the 2020 Lexus RCF and the RCF Track Edition to hit dealership somewhere in Spring of 2019 with price be announced sometime closer to that window. Be sure to check out the rest of our coverage of the 2019 Detroit Auto Show for even more cool debuts like this and be sure to check us out over on the roadshow.com for even more details about the new Lexus RCF
