Lexus plans to unveil a new superfast coupe at the Detroit auto show in January, just months before it hits the market.
The RC F Track Edition, which goes on sale in spring, reflects the brand’s “Experience Amazing” evolution, said Cooper Erickson, vice president of marketing for the Lexus Division of Toyota Motor North America.
“It’s about adding fun driving dynamics, styling, excitement, passion, emotion on to our traditional brand strengths,” he said in an interview Thursday in Detroit.
Bob Carter, Toyota’s executive vice president for North America sales, told Automotive News: “There’s still some of us that like to drive fast, and there’s some of us that like to drive really fast. And for those customers, we have something they’ll enjoy.”
Production will be “very very limited,” Carter said.
“With the exception of LF-A, this is the fastest most powerful vehicle that we’ve ever built,” he said.
