MOTORSPORT

To get to grips with Lexus’s unique and intense commitment to sporting performance, just look to our supercars and those we race. You’ll discover incredibly powerful driving experiences, through painstaking development to testing on the track.

SUPERCAR INSPIRATION

Born from true passion, our decade-long mission to create the ultimate driver’s car led us to the iconic LFA supercar. A modern icon, it has set a new standard in the world of high performance. And it became our personal benchmark, inspiring the future of Lexus performance.

SUPERCAR INSPIRATION

LEGENDARY STATUS

The LFA supercar is the epitome of Lexus performance, and the root of our F Philosophy. Launched at the 41st Tokyo International Motor Show in 2010, it’s still hailed as a legendary supercar.

Exclusive and sought-after, only 500 were ever made. Few in number but mighty in impact, they were met with true acclaim by the automotive industry. An enduring beacon, the LFA has continued to inspire the LC and other F Models in the Lexus range.

RACE READY

The race track is one of the most competitive environments in existence, for which our supercars are primed. They’re engineered to help teams outstrip the competition when it comes to speed, or any other aspect of performance.

WINNING FORMULA

Lexus became the first ever Asian carmaker to win a VLN Endurance Championship race at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. An RC F GT3 prototype claimed overall victory at the VLN9 race on the 8th October 2016. This remarkable model is replete with advanced engineering features aimed at extracting the very best from its 540-plus horsepower engine.

It’s graced with purpose-built front fenders designed to minimise drag. A rear spoiler stands tall and wide to generate sufficient downforce to boost stability and speed around the tightest of bends. All this and more makes it an asset to – and a real pleasure for – any race team.

TRACK-TUNED LUXURY

When we’re on the track, all our senses are activated. Ever-vigilant, we notice and learn in every moment. We then take our insight and distil this into our F Models, and our F SPORT grades. The result? A refined, energising drive, matched with sportier styling.
