The original car’s burning red exterior is replaced by an Opal Blue finish, inspired by the natural base color of the Australian gemstone.
The LF-LC combines advanced technologies and materials – derived from the development of the LFA supercar – with an organic design that points to styling cues that will influence future Lexus sports models.
The concept makes use of lightweight carbon fiber elements combined with aluminum alloy materials, as well as an advanced full hybrid powertrain.
Dubbed Advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive, it features a new, high-energy battery pack designed to deliver to greater power from a unit that is smaller than those used in Lexus’s current full hybrid model range.
The full gasoline-electric system in the LF-LC produces a maximum 500bhp (372kW).
Lexus has announced that it “is now actively studying how it can engineer and build a vehicle like this in the future.”
