THE LEXUS RC F GT3 SIGNALS AN AMBITIOUS FORAY INTO THE WORLD OF SPORTS CAR RACING. ENGINEER YUKIHIKO YAGUCHI EXPLAINS HOW, AND WHY

Yukihiko Yaguchi has a lot to be proud of. A chief engineer at Lexus, Yaguchi is the man behind the RC F GT3, a heavily modified version of the RC F, Lexus’s new high-performance coupe. He’s proud of the car, which will soon sit at the pinnacle of Lexus’s performance-oriented range. He’s proud that Lexus has become one of the few Japanese manufacturers to develop a vehicle compliant with the strict parameters of GT3, a grand touring motor-sport category that abides by regulations set by the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile), the world’s governing body for auto racing events. And he’s proud that his car is being so widely acknowledged.

The range includes the widely lauded Lexus LFA, a two-seat coupe that has competed in various endurance races.
