A production version of the impressive Lexus LF-LC has been recently reconfirmed but it seems that the model in question will not become a successor of the LFA.
Rumors on the development of a production Lexus LF-LC have been around for quite a lot of few years now and every once in a while a report is indicating us that the carmaker hasn’t forgotten about the model in question. The newest one is coming from Auto Express, which has spoken to the company’s Europe vice president, Alain Uyttenhoven. According to our source, the vehicle will not be produced in quantities larger than 500 but he declined to say when such a model will arrive.
As you may recall, the Lexus LF-LC has been officially presented to the public almost three years ago, back in 2012, January, during the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), in Detroit. The model in question came with a stunning looking exterior design, complemented by an even more interesting interior. Power came from a 5.0 liter V8 engine, which was backed up by two electric motors and a Ni-MH battery pack. The total output produced by the assembly stood at 438 HP (327 kW). The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint took just 5.6 seconds.
