But they both carry a premium price tag.
Believe it or not, it’s been ten years since Lexus launched its high-performance F division, which first made its mark in the US with the IS F in 2008. To celebrate, the automaker has launched two – but they carry some hefty premium price tags. Available now in US dealerships, the GS F 10th Anniversary Edition is priced at $89,350, representing a $5,000 premium over the standard model.
The RC F 10th Anniversary Edition, on the other hand, is priced at $80,810, representing a whopping $16,160 premium over the standard model. In fairness, though, both models come with the 10th Anniversary Package worth $9,000 and an optional Performance Package, Triple-Beam headlights, and Intuitive Park Assist systems. Production of the RC F 10th Anniversary Edition models will be limited to only 250 examples in the US, while the GS F 10th Anniversary Edition will be even rarer, with only 100 planned for production. As standard, both the GS F and RC F 10th Anniversary Edition are coated in matte finish Nebula Gray paint.
Both models also ride on contrasting 19-inch black polished wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sports with blue Brembo brake calipers, and inside they feature blue leather upholstery with white accents. An embossed headliner and blue-accented trim further enhances the RC F’s cabin, while the GS F’s gets additional blue carbon trim in the center console along with blue suede dash trim and blue seatbelt straps. Based on the R performance models, power comes from a 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine that produces 467 horsepower and 389 lb-ft of torque mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
