LEXUS CELEBRATES A DECADE OF ‘F’ PERFORMANCE AT THE 2018 GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED
Lexus will mark the 10th anniversary of its mighty ‘F’ performance brand in style this summer, giving fans the chance to experience the speed and incredible sound of some of Lexus’s famous performance cars.
Starting with the 423 DIN hp, V8-powered, IS F, and taking in the legendary LFA supercar, the 477 DIN hp RC F coupe and the GS F saloon, Lexus F cars have always been at the heart of the performance and excitement of the Lexus brand.
The festivities will begin at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where five-time Daytona winner and former Lexus LFA development driver Scott Pruett will be taking to the hill in the Lexus RC F GT3 racing car – recently a winner in both the American IMSA Weathertech SportsCar Championship and the Blancpain GT Series in Europe.
Scott will be at the wheel of the American 3GT Racing car, which sports a distinctive blue chrome livery.
The American racing legend will be joined by Briton Jack Hawksworth, who currently races the 3GT Racing RC F GT3 in IMSA. Jack will be driving a race-prepared RC F Cup sporting a one-off Lexus ‘F’ livery. Abbie Eaton, test driver on television’s The Grand Tour, will also be driving up the hill at the wheel of the iconic Lexus LFA.
The new RC F 10th Anniversary, which features an exclusive Mercury Grey matt paint finish last used on the LFA and striking Blue Carbon interior upholstery, will make its dynamic debut in the First Glance paddock.
The 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed will be held from Thursday July 12 to Sunday July 15 on the grounds of Goodwood House, West Sussex, England. More information can be found on www.goodwood.com/flagship-events/festival-of-speed/.
