Exclusive paint and interior and exterior trim mark out the anniversary edition from standard cars

Lexus has revealed its RC F 10th Anniversary edition, which celebrates ten years of the brand producing F performance models

Marked out by grey matt paint, gloss black exterior details and a blue carbon interior. It’s also fitted with the highest-spec audio and infotainment set-up available on the RC.

Lexus has left the car’s 5.0-litre V8 well alone, so performance is unchanged, with 470bhp and 384lb ft.

The RC F 10th Anniversary edition will go on sale in July at £69,995 - £10,305 more than the entry-level RC F. 

Lexus’s F-badged models began with the IS F in 2008 - a 5.0-litre V8-engined BMW M3 rival with over 400bhp. The 552bhp 4.8-litre V10-engined LFA was its second, and in its current line-up is the 470bhp GS F and the RC F.

It's not yet been revealed how many examples of the RC F 10th Anniversary will be produced.

Lexus’s UK market share fell to 0.5% last year, with 12,670 cars sold across the country compared with almost 14,000 last year. New model introductions, such as the UX and RX L, are expected to boost this, given the dominance of the growing SUV segments. The brand isn’t expected to launch F-badged versions of its growing range of SUVs in the near future, however.
