I think what he meant was does anyone in MCF currently owns a LFA or RC350 or at least tested them before.

Test drove the RC 350 F Sport. Good balance of comfort and performance. Drive feel very much like the GS 350 F Sport, but being more compact the RC is more agile. The price difference between the F Sport and non F Sport is marginal .. better to choose the former.

 

On a separate note, i recall a used LFA was on sale many moons back on sgcarmart. So, it may still be possible to get one.

2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition debuts in Detroit

The track-focused version joins the facelifted RC F for 2020.

Debuting today alongside the facelifted 2020 Lexus RC F is a new track-focused, limited-run edition of the car called the RC F Track Edition. Following the RC coupe's facelift unveil a few months ago at the Paris Motor Show, Lexus pulled the cover off the new Track Edition model today in Detroit.

At first glance, there are several positives to report. Most important is the subject of weight, which is often referenced as the current RC F’s Achilles' heel. The new Track Edition sheds 80 kilograms compared to the 2018 car. While it is still heavier than a comparable BMW M4 CS, Lexus still managed to remove an average size adult male from the car's mass, which they promise makes it a worthy track star.

Lexus fed the RC F Track Edition a steady diet of carbon fibre to help lighten it. Major panels like the roof and bonnet are now carbon fibre, as well as a carbon fibre partition behind the front seats replacing the back row. Other notable pieces include 19-inch BBS forged-alloy wheels with Brembo carbon ceramic brake rotors. These lighter pieces reduce The Track Edition’s unsprung weight by 25 kg from the current RC F.

To help motivate the now lighter car around the track, Lexus spent time tinkering with the engine, resulting in slightly more power from its 5.0-litre V8. One of the few remaining naturally aspirated performance cars on the market, the RC now packs an extra 5 bhp and 6 pound-feet of torque for a grand total of 472 bhp and 395 lb-ft. Power is still delivered to the rear wheels via the same eight-speed automatic transmission, but the engineers have implemented a higher final drive ratio to improve overall response.

Though the Track Edition is expected to be produced in very limited numbers, it represents an exciting way for the RC F to (presumably) fade into the light over the next year or two. And with its lightweight performance pieces and near 500 bhp output, it has the potential to be a real threat around a racetrack, too.
