Lexus Unveils Limited-Run 2021 RC F Fuji Speedway Edition

Special RC F named after the iconic Toyota-owned circuit replaces last year's Lexus RC F Track Edition.

The Lexus RC F is a fine sports car with a solid ride and handling chops, but traditionally, its extra weight has made it slower than rivals. For 2020, Lexus introduced the lighter, quicker RC F Track Edition, but production was limited to just 50 units for the United States. Now, Lexus is recreating some of this performance magic with another limited-production RC F: the Fuji Speedway Edition. Along with the outgoing Track Edition's weight reductions, the new model adds a handful of unique design details to the Lexus performance coupe.

The 2021 Lexus RC F Fuji Speedway Edition is limited to just 60 units and packs on the carbon fiber to improve performance. It also benefits from a titanium exhaust and Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes. Lexus claims the special edition takes 4.0 seconds to hit 60 mph, matching its estimate for the Track Edition. For comparison, the standard RC F is estimated to reach 60 mph from a standstill in 4.2 seconds. Like the rest of the RC F lineup, the Fuji Speedway Edition features a 5.0-liter V-8 engine good for 472 hp and 395 lb-ft of torque.

Buyers can choose between two exterior colors: Cloudburst Gray and Arctic Blast Satin. The latter selection is a Lexus-first and consists of white paint with a satin luster. Inside the cabin, you'll find red carbon-fiber accents and red leather-trimmed seats with faux-suede accents. Purchasing this special edition also gets the owner a limited-production MSTR watch with red accents, as well as Fuji Speedway and F logos.

Lexus has also added a few goodies to the regular RC F, too. For 2021, the V-8 coupe gets a standard blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert, heated electrochromic exterior mirrors, driver's side memory seat, and Android Auto compatibility. A new satin trim can be found inside the cabin.

From the Editors of Super Street: Lexus's parent Toyota has owned Fuji Speedway since 2000 (indeed, the "F" in Lexus F is supposed to be a reference to the track) and the naming of the special-edition RC F might be tangentially part of a larger campaign to bring some acclaim back to the almost 60-year-old circuit. We've heard the facility will soon be undergoing some big improvements in order to transform it into a world-class racing destination, plans that include a motorsports village with luxury hotel, museum, and facilities for both teams and privateers.

Inspiration in car building can come from just about any direction and, more often than not, thrives when influence from outside the norm works its way into a builder’s final product, and this 1991 Honda Civic is a prime example of that notion. Borrowing from multiple styles helped create a one-of-a-kind ED chassis Civic that

Fourteen years is an eternity for a chassis to remain in production without a complete redesign. We rarely see cars, even special interest or sportscars eclipsing the 10-year mark in the Japanese vehicle realm with a single chassis. Sure, it happens, but it’s not a common occurrence though Nissan seems to push those limits as

Alright, you know the drill: new car is introduced and immediately it’s regarded as the worst design of all time, a product of car X and car Y creating an unwanted baby, and, of course, the always popular, “they should have asked me to design it.” It’s expected in modern times, especially with social media’s

If there’s a Bentley Continental hovering around your neighborhood, chances are it accelerates only rapidly enough to jump in front of the next guy on its way to Starbucks for that $8 latte. It probably doesn’t have any intention of attacking the clock at a weekend track day, and certainly doesn’t aspire to climb a

Nothing makes Super Street fans angrier than a prototype or rendering and up until now, that’s all we could offer regarding the 11th gen. Honda Civic.
