Hear the 2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition Growl - VIDEO

Model coming to the Detroit auto show

Lexus has released a new teaser video previewing the RC F Track Edition before its debut later this month.

The automaker did a good job of not revealing too much, but we do catch a glimpse of the rear end. It features an L-shaped taillight signature that builds off the standard RC F. The model also has one mean rear spoiler. Probably the best part of the video is that we can hear the car's wild engine note.

Lexus says this is not an accessory package but a full purpose-built vehicle. The video, which takes place on a track, reinforces this message. The 2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition is the second most powerful model ever built by the automaker. It is bested only by the LFA that makes 562 hp when paired with the Nurburgring package. The Track Edition will join the lineup in "very, very limited production," says Robert Carter, executive vice president of sales for Toyota Motor North America. As we saw in a prior teaser, it will have carbon-fiber end plates.

The model has to be quite quick if it can beat the standard RC F. Packing a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8 engine with 467 hp, the regular RC F can hit 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, according to our tests. We'll learn more information about the Track Edition when it debuts January 14 at the Detroit auto show.

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. The burnt orange Civic sedan prototype that we talked about in November of last year signified a new direction for Honda who, at least in the enthusiast market, spent
