2021 Lexus RC F Track Edition Review // The Wrong Way To Spend $100,000

13 000 Shikime 362 mijë

The 2021 Lexus RC F Track Edition ($122,671 CAD, ~$100,000 USD) aims to be a carbon fibre track weapon. Aggressive aero, weight reductions, a 472 horsepower V8, and rear wheel drive. But does the track edition live up to its name when pushed to the limit? And will it be able to take down its similarly priced competition? Watch to find out! SUBSCRIBE!!!

    To be fair the editing on this video is good. Not sure about the hosts. As far as the low track lap time, this a result of driver capabilities (slow cornering speed, slow out corner to straight). Any one can drive a turbo fast on straights. I’d suggest get a driver that has at least an Int. D class (equivalent) licence or higher.

    I bought a 2020 RCF and got it for around $68k. For what it is, it's awesome! I never looked at a car like an m3/4 or anything of that nature. I don't want something that is fast in a straight line or take to a track... I want a comfortable cruiser that is typical lexus/toyota reliability and when I put my foot down I hear the 8 cylinder. As cool as the Track edition or Fuji edition is, it's to my not worth $100k... or at least I would not spend that much for this vehicle. I'd look at a Porsche no questions. IF however they would have bumped up the power by 100hp for the track edition and done some other stuff it might be more worth it... I love the CF even though it looks boy ricer to me in certain areas, but you can't get past the fact it's the same engine, same body style and overall same infotainment..etc, and or actually LESS options for the car, and paying more. I LOVE the CCB but that can be changed for two piece rotors at a later time. The all red interior is way too much for me. It's typical lexus styling gone too far. It looks tacky and when I sat in one at the dealer when I was buying mine it was overwhelming the amount of red inside. I LOVE my rcf though. But I would never buy the track edition... just way too expensive for what you are getting.

    This is what you buy when you want something badass that you can drive to the track, have a track day, and then drive it back home over and over again without having to worry about it too much. It is certainly not the best on paper but if you're looking for something more than capable to have a fun time with at the track that will also not be a nightmare to own long-term, this is what you want to buy. I ain't a Cayman, but doesn't have the running costs of a Cayman either.

    Why is Lexus not using the 10A in more cars? Any why oh why do they have that terrific 3.5L TT (or 3.4L depending on which publication you read) and refuse to put it in anything that can exploit it's potential? Every Lexus car is so Meh....The LFA was a banger, but everything else, although well built, just boring compared to what else is out there. NA engines are great if they can get the same performance as forced induction cars in the same class (new Vette for example, Mustang GT, Camaro SS, 392SRT, etc) but Lexus's are sloooow compared to any of the direct competitors from the USA. I used to be a huge Lexus fan until they abandoned the original formula and got ugly and the competition left them behind. I'm always hoping they'll come out with something great again. The new IS500F looks promising but it'll still be slower than an M340i, probably more on par with an S4.

    It's probably very reliable but it's just not a track car especially when it comes to handling and overall quickness. It's too expensive, not comfortable, and there's 20 cars that are cheaper that smash it in almost every category. Let's see the new twin turbo V8 in a much better version of this and I'll think about buying one.

      If this is already well over 100k+ we all know how stupid they'll get with the price once they add in the TTV8 and this is just them throwing a carbon bodykit and some small tuning and calling it a day while adding a extra 30-50k to its price tag alone.

    Crazy pp2 Mustang GT can make it around the track faster than a completely track focused lexus that costs this much. Both 5.0L around the same power. But you get the insane capability and reliability of the coyote in the ford. People make 1200whp with factory sealed coyote and run 7s in the 1/4 mile. I'm taking that capability anyday over a confused Lexus. Build that coyote and you can do 6s.

    I really liked the original RCF when it came out around 2015, the performance numbers at the time were good and it was kind of like a modern Supra (at least in purpose) and the price wasn't too bad. Alas time has gone on and it didn't receive any meaningful updates to the base trim. Off topic that outro was hilarious. XD

    His description of the on-track handling gives me flashbacks. Years ago, I owned an E36 M3, and I got to instruct a student on a track in a 1st gen IS300. You know, the one that was gonna put the BMW 3-series (including the M3) in its place. It was almost exactly like this RC F: Up to about 8/10, it felt very good. Lovely engine, good seats, good build quality. Nice compromise between ride and handling. Typical Lexus. But once you started approaching its limits, it got squirrely. Like, you could go around the same corner at the same speed three times in a row, and it would be like three different cars: one time it would plow, next time the back end would step out, and the third time it would do both. The M3, OTOH, you could drive right up to (or even slightly beyond) its limits, and know exactly what it was going to do next.

    hmm.... a 2 door, sports car with a roaring v8... i wonder who does that better.... ehem ( corvette ) ehem... ( GT350 ) ehem... im no american car fanboy, in fact i own 3 JDM cars, and that includes a DC5 integra type R, but i mean come on. america has come such a long way with their chassis design. and i can probably safely quote Jeremy clarkson directy here " why buy a saloon car, modified to be a training shoe, when you can get a car thats design to be a training shoe to begin with" - he was talking about the Jaguar vs the nissan GTR. theC8 is cheaper, well sorted out and designed with the pursuit of being a v8 track car. im sorry lexus but, for that price, i wish you guys repurposed the old Lexus LFA godlike chassis and made another vehicle from that chassis. this is pathetic.
