2022 Lexus RC F Fuji Speedway Edition

A cool, Electric Surge exterior finish, improved performance, and extreme exclusivity

Lexus firstly introduced the RC F Fuji Edition for the first time in 2021 and now, for the 2022 model year, it is making a comeback. In 2021, Lexus built only 60 units, and production will be even more exclusive for the 2022 model year: only 50 units will be built.

In 2021, the RC F Fuji Edition was offered in an exclusive Arctic Blast Satin paint.

Now, for the 2022 model year Lexus opted for an Electric Surge finish - a unique blue paint with a semi-matte finish.

For the interior, Lexus opted for blue Alcantara-trimmed seats plus Alcantara accents on the shift knob and steering wheel. Lots of blue carbon fiber ornaments adorn the cabin, while F logo scuff plates and serialized badging will further help to identify the car.

The 2022 RC F Fuji Edition also features a titanium exhaust and Brembo Carbon Ceramic brakes. These, combined with the extensive use of carbon fiber, have improved the aerodynamics and reduced the car’s total weight.

As a result the 0 to 60 mph sprint is made in 3.96 seconds - down from the RC F's standard 4.2 seconds.

The engine remains unchanged: a 5.0-liter V-8 engine that delivers a total of 472 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque. Top speed also remains unchanged at 170 mph.

It will go on sale in the fall of 2021 and while Lexus said nothing about the prices yet, we expect it to be priced similar to the 2021 edition: $98,225.

About the author

The high-performance RC F races into the 2022 model year with its GT3-inspired looks and naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 producing 472 horsepower. RC F – celebrated for having the best power-to-weight ratio offered in its class – is the most powerful V8-powered Lexus to date and boasts stunning looks, cunning dynamics and a unique exhaust signature. With 395 pound-feet of torque at 4,800 rpm, the 5.0-liter V8 is a core ingredient in the RC F’s athletic recipe.

RC F FUJI SPEEDWAY EDITION

The stunning coupe welcomes back the Fuji Speedway Edition to the lineup. Paying homage to the track where Lexus F began, the RC F Fuji Speedway Edition will be limited to just 50 units. Named after the world-renowned “Temple of Speed” in the foothills of Mount Fuji – the birthplace of Lexus’ high performance and inspiration for the F in RC F – this unique edition embodies decades of development on the iconic Japanese track. Precisely engineered beyond the base RC F, this version of the performance coupe features master-crafted upgrades that seamlessly work together to push performance to a new level. Featuring Brembo Carbon Ceramic brakes, a titanium exhaust and extensive use of carbon fiber to improve aerodynamics and reduce weight, the RC F Fuji Speedway Edition is far more than an appearance package. The sum of the detailed enhancements can be experienced in the 3.96 seconds it takes to accelerate to 60 mph from a standstill (4.2 seconds for RC F).

The 2022 RC F Fuji Speedway Edition will only be available in an exclusive Electric Surge paint. Electric Surge – a Lexus-first – is a unique blue paint possessing a semi-matte finish. The paint expresses a beautiful satin luster like that of a true matte finish yet is durable enough go through an automatic car wash. Inside, every cockpit is decorated with black and blue Alcantara-trimmed seats and is invigorated by Alcantara accents on the shift knob and steering wheel. Blue Carbon Fiber ornamentation adorns the cabin for the ultimate distinction. F logo scuff plates and serialized badging add a finishing touch to this limited-edition RC F.
