LEXUS CELEBRATES A DECADE OF ‘F’ PERFORMANCE THIS SUMMER

Lexus will mark the 10th anniversary of its mighty ‘F’ performance brand in style this summer, giving fans the chance to experience the speed and incredible sound of some of Lexus’s famous performance cars.

Starting with the 417bhp, V8-powered, IS F, and taking in the legendary LFA supercar, the 470bhp RC F coupe and the GS F saloon, Lexus F cars have always been at the heart of the performance and excitement of the Lexus brand.

The festivities will begin at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where five-time Daytona winner and former Lexus LFA development driver Scott Pruett will be taking to the hill in the Lexus RC F GT3 racing car – recently a winner in both the American IMSA Weathertech SportsCar Championship and the Blancpain GT Series in Europe.

Scott will be at the wheel of the American 3GT Racing car, which sports a distinctive blue chrome livery.

The American racing legend will be joined by Briton Jack Hawksworth, who currently races the 3GT Racing RC F GT3 in IMSA. Jack will be driving a race-prepared RC F Cup sporting a one-off Lexus ‘F’ livery. Abbie Eaton, test driver on television’s The Grand Tour, will also be driving up the hill at the wheel of the iconic Lexus LFA.

The new RC F 10th Anniversary, which features an exclusive Mercury Grey matt paint finish last used on the LFA and striking Blue Carbon interior upholstery, will make its dynamic debut in the First Glance paddock.

Later in the month, that special edition RC F coupe will also be on static display at the Silverstone Classic, and both CarFest North and CarFest South. It will be joined at the former by the RC F GT3 and the race-prepared RC F Cup cars.

Additionally, there will be a campaign across Lexus UK’s social media channels, charting the story of ‘F’ from the 2008 IS F right through to the latest RC F 10th Anniversary Edition.
