Lexus is not going to let its Toyota sibling hog the entire sports-car spotlight with its much-anticipated new Supra next month in Detroit at the 2019 North American International Auto Show. The luxury brand has announced with a teaser photo that it will roll out a 2020 RC F Track Edition coupe that will be the hottest Lexus available.
No other details were offered, but the new version of the coupe will be more than an aggressive appearance package, a Toyota official said.
Carter added that, like the 500-copy LFA from 2012, the RC F Track Edition's production will be "very, very limited."
The LFA super-expensive supercar was powered by a 552-horsepower V-10. The current RC F has a 467-hp V-8, second in the Lexus power pecking order to the LC coupe's 471 hp. That makes 500-plus a good bet for the new Track Edition RC F, and the Track Edition name indicates that the go-fast upgrades will be more thorough than just the engine.

The teaser photo shows a matte-finish Track Edition's wing, a carbon-fiber jewel with the F logo embroidered in the fiber strands. Beyond being currently trendy, the carbon fiber may also be an homage to the LFA's carbon-fiber chassis and body construction.
