Will the Stunning Lexus LF-LC Make 600HP?

Sources say the top-of-the-line version could be a beast.

Lexus' upcoming halo car, the production - and reportedly nearly identical - version of what was the stunning 2012 Detroit Auto Show LF-LC Concept, could also turn out to be quite the performance monster. According to unspecified sources at the company speaking to Motor Trend, the next Japanese GT car could come with three engines, with the line-topping 5.0-liter V8 tuned to produce a staggering 600 horsepower, similar to its brewing RC F brother.

Lower down the rung, a hybrid version should pump out approximately 500 hp from a powerplant jointly developed with BMW. Even the base version of this stunner promises to be quite fulfilling, given its naturally-aspirated V8 should offer 450 horsepower. With promising rumors such as these, we can't wait to see the LF-LC unveiled.
