Lexus has released images and preliminary details with the RC F GT3 concept confirmed to be officially unveiled at the 84th Geneva Motor Show next week.
Aside from showcasing the road-going RC 350 F SPORT at the Swiss show, Lexus is also going to introduce the track-only RC F GT3 concept which will arrive at racing teams next year. Under the hood it gets the same V8 engine from the RC F but modified to deliver more than 540 HP (397 kW) whereas the regular RC F offers 455 HP (335 kW).
Designed to tackle the BMW M4, the RC F has been equipped with an aggressive body kit that includes a new front bumper, revised side skirts and ventilated front fenders. The model also has a bulging hood, an "F-mesh" grille and 19-inch forged aluminum wheels. If that's not aggressive enough, the car can be equipped with a carbon fiber package that adds a carbon fiber roof and an active rear spoiler that deploys at 50 mph (80 km/h) and retracts at speeds less than 25 mph (40 km/h).
The interior echoes the standard RC but has been equipped with sport seats, revised instrumentation, alloy pedals and an "elliptical cross-section thick grip steering wheel."
The vehicle tips the scales at 2,755 lbs (1,249 kg) and has the following dimensions: 4705mm length, 2000mm width and 1270mm height, with a 2730mm wheelbase. Lexus has announced vehicle testing will commence in the following months ahead of next year's plans to participate in races all over the world, including the Super GT series in Japan and 24 Hours of Nürburgring endurance race in Germany.
