The limited-edition Lexus RC F and GS F looks as sinful as they’re evocative


Meet Lexus’ new limited-edition models – the RC F coupe and GS F sedan – introduced to mark  the 10th anniversary of the luxury brand’s iconic F Line.

The two V8 performance cars stand out with a matte grey paint finish, a “Competition Blue” interior with carbon-fibre highlights, 19-inch black polished alloy 20-spoke wheels with visible blue callipers beneath and front performance dampers.

Lexus chief executive Scott Thompson said the 10th anniversary limited-edition models captured the sporting spirit of the F performance marque – cars honed on the track but designed for accessible road-going performance.

“The letter F symbolises a series of Lexus cars that are designed and engineered to deliver a higher level of sporting style and driving reward,” Mr Thompson said.

The powerful lines and sculpted surfaces of the limited-edition models are accentuated by a matte paint finish known as Fuji Graphite that is also applied to the door handles, mirror housings, side skirts and shark fin antenna.

Exclusive to the anniversary models, the new paint treatment provides a striking contrast with the polished black finish of the 19-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the highly supportive front sports seats are finished in vivid blue semi-aniline leather with white accents and a “F symbol” embossed in the integrated head restraints.

Matching blue leather can be found on the steering wheel, gear-shift knob, instrument panel, centre console and seatbelts.

Each model is fitted with a discreet metal plaque recording the car’s Limited status.

The surrounds for the window controls on the door armrests incorporate carbon-fibre weave finish in blue, black and silver. The rear seats are wrapped in black leather, also embossed with the F symbol to add to the sense of sportiness and focus.

The 10th anniversary RC F is based on the RC F Carbon Pack, equipping the car with a carbon fibre roof and active rear wing. It is priced from $151,929 (approx. RM450k).

The GS F limited-edition sedan, which features carbon-fibre lower grille surround and rear lip spoiler, is priced from $155,940 (approx RM462k).

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
