A genuine racer fit for the GT3 class needs to come with advanced aerodynamics, the latest mechanics and a worthy engine under the hood, key elements which the newly-presented Lexus RC F GT3 has plenty to offer.
Recently released in details by Toyota`s luxury brand, the all-new Lexus RC F GT3 impresses with the carbon fiber elements around the body and sheer performance under the hood. We will get the chance of seeing it race in the US, Japan as well as at the Nurburgring 24 Hours.
Thanks to the hefty use of carbon fiber elements around the body, this lad here has complied with the FIA regulations, weighing exactly 1,300 kg.
As aforementioned, the Lexus RC F GT3 is extremely aerodynamically advanced, coming with foot-wide flared arches, as well as custom front grille with red tow rope and huge carbon fiber rear wing for increased downforce.
As for the equipment under the hood, this lad here is extremely nervous. It packs a 5.4-liter V8 which replaces the ongoing 5.0-liter mill, with more output than the ongoing model. Unfortunately, the carmaker would not reveal the official power and torque at this time. The engine will come however with high-performance six-speed sequential race transmission which replaces the eight-speed gearbox.
The GT3 race championship will begin later on this year, with the carmaker hoping that the new Lexus RC F GT3 will be driven by the same team that won the GT series in Japan last year. We hopefully get to see Team SARD and drivers Heikki Kovalainen and Kohei Hirate guiding the model toward winning a new championship title.
