All Lexus models are built to exacting standards for luxury and capability, but the F-Performance vehicles represent the most power that the brand has to offer. Named after the Fuji Speedway in Japan where Lexus tests performance developments, the F-Performance lineup is composed of track-ready cars that can also double as daily drivers.
This high-performance version of Lexus compact premium coupe, the RC F is equipped with a powerful V8 engine that yields 467 horsepower. The car can race from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds, which led Road & Track reviewers to praise it as very good on a track and simply brilliant away from it.
Equipped with the same 467-horsepower V8 engine found in the RC F, the GS F is the most powerful sedan that Lexus has ever offered. It also has a similar 0-to-60 mph acceleration time of 4.5 seconds, but distinguishes itself with its roomy, plush interior and sophisticated design. The price tag of $83,940* represents an excellent value for a vehicle of this quality, as well.
Though it does not share the F letter in its title, the Lexus LC does have the same 2UR-GSE V8 engine as the RC F and GS F. However, thanks to improved intake and exhaust, the LCs powertrain manages an even more impressive 471 ponies. The two-door fastback coupe is also paired with a new 10-speed transmission, which contributes to an overall thrilling driving experience. The starting price of $92,000* is not too shabby, either.
The LC Hybrid represents a profound advancement in hybrid performance. The innovative Lexus Multistage Hybrid Drive produces a total system horsepower of 354 hp, and a shockingly fast 4.7-second 0-to-60 mph time. Somehow, it accomplishes all of this while still managing a 35-mpg** highway rating. Like every product the brand creates, the high-performance hybrid from Lexus raises the bar for every other vehicle in the category. And it does so for under $100,000, carrying a starting MSRP of $96,510*.
