The production version of the Lexus LF-LC Concept car might use the carbon fiber components from the LFA.
After the Lexus LFA has been sold out for quite a few months and with the supercar leaving the production line, the Japanese based automaker is planning to transfer some of the technology used on the model on a future production version of the LF-LC. Toyota’s luxury brand Lexus might use the same carbon fiber components for the production version of the LF-LC, which is expected to make its way in the new form to the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, on the 14th of January.
Unfortunately we don’t have any more details on this subject for the moment, but as a quick reminder, the Lexus LF-LC Concept was powered by a 5.0 liter V8 engine, which was helped on the way by two electric motors and a Ni-MH battery pack, producing a total output of 438 HP (444 PS / 327 kW). The model could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds and it could reach a top speed of 208 km/h. The production version of the LF-LC remains in the shadows for the moment.
