While the Lexus RC F GT500 has already been racing, its counterpart, the GT3, is still under testing as it prepares to begin competing in 2015. Japanese publication Auto Sport spied one of its first track versions being shipped somewhere.

The differences between the RC F GT3 and the GT500 include the shape with the GT3 having a wide-bodykit, and the GT500 being more based on the Lexus LF-CC concept car. The LF-CC has a less bulged hood and has two big air vents in it.

The RC F GT3 runs on a upgraded version of its road-going V8, making over 540 hp and mated to an 8-speed gearbox controlled via steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.

They seem almost identical when it comes to width, but we really need to see specs to see what exactly the dimensions are. I love how both kits look, i bet someone or some company will come out with some widebody kit inspired by it.

I can't believe the size of that rear spoiler. It must actually do something good for the aerodynamics of the car though since it is actually racing and all. Would be so much fun to get a chance to drive this one day.

It would be cool to see that happen but how many would actually have the money to buy it? Unless you slpit it 20-30 ways...

tecnically the GT3 car is sold to consumers. They have a customer race program, so you could theoretically walk in and drop serious skrills on this thing. You wouldn't be able to drive it ANYWHERE but, technically you could buy it ;)

That is true, it's basically for "off-road" use only. Good for some serious track car build if you have a lot of money, but thats not the case for many, only in these professional series.

Its the kind of car you could add to your collection if you are one of those rich people that has a collection of cars. Then you could transport it down to the track to drive it around on the weekends.

I'd like to know who the people are who do buy this car, and when do they find the opportunity to drive it?
