Lexus will introduce a concept version of the RC F GT3 race car at the next
week's Geneva Motor Show with which it will attack race tracks around the world
The RC F GT3 concept, based on the recently revealed RC F performance coupe, was developed to meet Group GT3 international racing standards. It weighs 2,7556 lbs and comes with a modified version of the base RC F's V8 engine, producing a maximum output exceeding 540 horsepower.
Lexus will supply GT3-compliant vehicles to racing teams starting in 2015, with vehicle testing to start this year. GT3 cars can enter many races globally, such as the 24 Hours of Nurburgring endurance race in Germany and the Super Taikyu Endurance and Super GT series in Japan.
