Hear the 2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition Growl - VIDEO

Model coming to the Detroit auto show

Lexus has released a new teaser video previewing the RC F Track Edition before its debut later this month.

The automaker did a good job of not revealing too much, but we do catch a glimpse of the rear end. It features an L-shaped taillight signature that builds off the standard RC F. The model also has one mean rear spoiler. Probably the best part of the video is that we can hear the car's wild engine note.

Lexus says this is not an accessory package but a full purpose-built vehicle. The video, which takes place on a track, reinforces this message. The 2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition is the second most powerful model ever built by the automaker. It is bested only by the LFA that makes 562 hp when paired with the Nurburgring package. The Track Edition will join the lineup in "very, very limited production," says Robert Carter, executive vice president of sales for Toyota Motor North America. As we saw in a prior teaser, it will have carbon-fiber end plates.

The model has to be quite quick if it can beat the standard RC F. Packing a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8 engine with 467 hp, the regular RC F can hit 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, according to our tests. We'll learn more information about the Track Edition when it debuts January 14 at the Detroit auto show.
