The “F” doesn’t stand for “fast,” but that’s sure how it feels. This year, 10 years after Lexus launched its performance sub-brand with the Lexus IS F, the automaker is celebrating the anniversary of the F brand, named after the Fuji Speedway in Japan, where much of the development takes place.

Lexus announced Monday that it will offer 10th anniversary editions of the RC F and GS F this summer to commemorate the event, complete with special edition paint and number plates.

The RC F and GS F will wear matte gray paint on the outside, the first time the color has adorned Lexus F cars from the factory since the LFA—the zenith of the brand so far. The sedan and coupe will also sport blue-painted brake calipers housed in 19-inch wheels wrapped with sticky Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires.

Inside, the RC F and GS F are festooned with blue leather seats and blue carbon fiber trim along with a serialized production plate inside. Lexus said they will produce 240 anniversary RC F coupes and 100 anniversary GS F sedans for the occasion.

The RC F gets an embossed headliner, blue steering wheel and shift knob, while the GS F adds to that blue leather bolsters, and a blue suede dash, and blue seatbelts. The GS F skips the embossed headliner.

Both are powered by a 5.0-liter V-8 that makes 467 horsepower and is teamed to an 8-speed automatic.
