Say Hello To The 532bhp Lexus RC-F GT3 Race Car

Lexus has unveiled its new racing car ahead of Geneva. We like

Remind me later
Lexus RC F GT3 7 If, for whatever reason, the BMW M4-rivalling RC-F Lexus is a little tame for you, this might well be the solution. It's the RC-F GT3 racing car concept, and it's probably the most extreme Lexus this side of an LFA. Lexus RC F GT3 3 The naturally-aspirated 5.0-litre V8 from the road-going car is under the bonnet, with the power raised from 450bhp to 532bhp. With the car weighing only 1249kg, this thing should be quick. Lexus RC F GT3 2 It'll be delivered to racing teams next year, and is expected to compete in events such as the 24 Hours Of Nurburgring endurance race, and Japan's Super GT series. Lexus RC F GT3 4 The concept will be publicly unveiled next week at the Geneva motor show, alongside the new RC Sport (above). That car will be available as either the RC300h with a 217bhp hybrid powertrain, or the RC350 with a 306bhp 3.5-litre V6. For reasons outlined in our recent IS300h review, we'd recommend you avoid the hybrid.
