Will Lexus' Production LC 500 Look Like Its Stunning Concept?

Rumor

The final product is almost here.

It’s been a long time since we’ve heard any news on Lexus’incredible LF-LC concept. Ever since the vehicle was revealed at the 2015 DetroitMotor Show, we’ve been holding our breaths to see if Lexus would actually builda production variant of the vehicle. While the automaker announced that itwould create a production-spec vehicle based off of the LF-LC, there hasn’tbeen any recent news to make us excited. According to Australia’s Motoring,Lexus is planning on bringing a LC 500 coupe to the 2016 Detroit Motor Show.

It’s been a couple of years in the making for Lexus, but theLC 500 coupe is coming after the Porsche 911 with its naturally-aspirated 5.0-literV8 from the Lexus RC F and GS F. According to Motoring, the LC 500 might have an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission from Aisin. There’s no word onwhat will power the LC 500h, but Motoring believes that the vehicle will utilizea 3.5-liter V6 hybrid powertrain that could produce in the neighborhood of 470hp. An even more hardcore version of the LC F is already rumored to be in theworks and could make somewhere around 600 hp. Hopefully, Lexus won’t ruin thenew LC 500 coupe by watering down the concept’s gorgeous looks.
