Toyota’s luxury brand Lexus is believed to offer a production version of the impressive LF-LC Concept car as a replacement for the popular LFA.
The Lexus LFA has been in production for quite a few years now and after all units being delivered to customers all over the world, the Japanese based automaker is currently considering a successor for the impressive supercar. The replacement of the LFA is believed to come in the shape of a production LF-LC Concept car version. The announcement has been made by Haruhiko Tanahashi, when speaking to Autocar.
“I have the expectation that car will be launched. I personally hope the LF-LC will be built. I think most of Lexus’s concept cars have been turned into production cars”, said the man behind the LFA.
The Lexus LF-LC has been officially unveiled, almost two years ago, during the 2012 NAIAS in Detroit, and it was also brought to a lot of automotive events across the globe. The model in question was taking its power from a 5.0 liter V8 engine, helped by two electric motors and a Ni-MH battery pack. The total output stands at 438 HP (327 kW), enough for a 0 to 60 mph sprint made in 5.5 seconds and a 208 km/h top speed.
