Performance

There’s more to performance than speed alone. It’s about feeling truly connected to your vehicle, the road, and your senses. At Lexus, we make it our mission to take you there.

ENGINEERED FOR EXHILARATION

Passion makes us human. It also drives us to create amazing cars. Though our engineering is highly technical and fuelled by innovation, when we’re designing, building and testing a model, we put sensory experience and pleasure first. Is the vehicle moving you, in every sense? Does it ignite emotion? Figures and technical specifications matter, but ultimately what really counts for Lexus is how each vehicle feels.

BORN ON THE RACE TRACK

How do you create cars that privilege unique and exhilarating driving experiences? You conceive and refine them on the race track.

Many of our finest models were born on the world’s most famous race tracks. That’s where we dream, test, and perfect, so you can indulge in thrilling levels of speed and performance.

FUJI SPEEDWAY & NÜRBURGRING

The majority of our testing work is carried out on Japan’s legendary Fuji Speedway. One of the world’s most challenging race tracks, it’s where the ‘F’ in F Philosophy is drawn from.

Testing also takes place in Europe, on the famous Nürburgring in Germany. A Nürburgring Edition of the LFA paid stunning tribute to the location. It's exceptional, and exceptionally rare. Just 50 vehicles were ever produced.

The Lexus LC luxury coupé made its high-profile debut at the annual 24 hours of Nürburgring race, too. It was unveiled in the pre-race Prologue parade.

SUPERCHARGED HERITAGE

The Lexus LFA is a supercar in every sense. It continues and intensifies our heritage of race-led innovation. A pure example of ambitious vision expertly realised, it reflects a slight ‘mad streak’ in our passion which pushes us forward to new limits.

The LFA is where you’ll experience the fullest expression of our desire to create the ultimate connection between car and driver. But its revolutionary spirit and features also deeply influence the other vehicles in our range, including our F models. What begins with the LFA soon finds its way elsewhere. We chase the finest, most exhilarating performance across the entire Lexus range. To do so, we’ve made the race track our innovation lab for F models.

LC SPORTS COUPÉ

Revealed in Detroit in 2016, at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), the LC instantly drew industry attention and accolades. Diverse teams from across Lexus united to produce a car which fuses elevated design with unmatched performance.

Lexus engineers and designers worked tirelessly to bring the LC to life. Just like our world famous LFA supercar, the LC is built by Takumi master craftspeople. Car-making is their vocation, and decades of experience mean they know precision and beauty intimately, raising standards to new heights.

F Models

Inspired by our F Philosophy, our F Models showcase our love for passion and performance. Sit behind the wheel, and you’ll be transported to new heights of sensation.

The RC F has been described by some as one of the most amazing high performance 2+2 ever created. Others go further in an attempt to capture the exhilaration; an unprecedented feat of performance engineering forged from the asphalt up. However you choose to describe the RC F, no words will prepare you for the emotional and enthralling driving experience that awaits.

F SPORT

Take your favourite Lexus model and lend it a sportier edge. Our F SPORT cars are elevated with design upgrades both inside and out, alongside subtle suspension tuning, to exhilarating effect.

LEXUS F VEHICLES ARE DESIGNED FROM THE GROUND UP TO AMPLIFY THE DRIVER'S SKILL, RATHER THAN DEMAND AN ADVANCED LEVEL OF DRIVING EXPERTISE. BEHIND THE WHEEL OF A LEXUS F PERFORMANCE VEHICLE YOU'LL DISCOVER PURE DRIVING JOY.
