2017 Lexus LF-LC Review & Changes – A two-plus-two sports coupe concept from Toyota’s California design studio which could be Lexus’s solution to the Aston Martin DB9 if, of course, it gets to production. Higher priced and much more motorist-driven than the defunct SC430 convertible, this “inadequate man’s LFA” (it’ll cost about half as significantly) will press at the very least 500 horsepower from its hybrid powertrain.
With the LFA out of the picture, the LF-LC would come to be the brand’s regular-bearer-and a much more noticeable one in that. Unknown. A new front-engine, rear-drive architecture or a heavily modified Lexus GS platform are logical possibilities. A gasoline-electric hybrid with a V-8 engine as well as at least 500 horsepower. Aston Martin DB9, Bentley Continental GT, Ferrari California, Mercedes-Benz S-class coupe, Porsche 911 Turbo, Rolls-Royce Wraith.
Revealed as a concept at last year’s Detroit show, the LF-LC transferred towards creation following passionate receptions at seller conferences. That green light can speedily transform red, although, for a hold of politics and economic factors. At the earliest, in 2016 as a 2017 model with a price just beneath $200,000.
