Lexus GS F, RC F Special Editions Celebrate 10 Years of the F Badge

Limited-production cars coming to Chicago

Lexus' "F" performance brand turns 10 this year, and the company is bringing two special anniversary edition 2019 GS F and RC F models to the Chicago auto show to mark the occasion.

These limited editions made their global debut at the Tokyo show last year and both are scheduled to arrive at dealerships in the summer—only 240 RC F and 100 GS F models are slated for the U.S.

The RC F coupe and GS F sedan both pack a 5.0-liter V-8 engine that delivers 467 hp and 389 lb-ft of torque. The pair sends power to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission and the GS F sedan features a standard torque vectoring rear differential.

Both sport a fresh coat of matte-finish Nebula Gray paint and roll on polished black multi-spoke 19-inch wheels with blue brake calipers, and Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires.

Like blue? You'd better, because the interior gets plenty of blue carbon-fiber trim with blue leather accents on the window panel and dashboard. Fancy engraved plaques alert passengers to the car's limited-edition status.

Lexus says the RC F coupe features blue leather front sport seats with white accents, a blue shift knob, steering wheel, instrument panel hood, and an embossed headliner.

The GS F sedan gets the same treatment, minus the headliner, and more blue leather on the side bolsters, blue suede dash trim, and blue seat belt straps.

Pricing hasn't been announced, but the 2018 Lexus RC F starts at $65,645 and the GSF starts at $85,345.
