Updated Lexus LF-LC Concept going to Sydney Motor Show image

The Japanese based automaker Lexus has announced its plans to introduce an updated version of the LF-LC Concept at the upcoming 2012 Australian International Motor Show in Sydney.

According to the carmaker, the Lexus LF-LC Concept, which was officially presented to the public in Detroit earlier this year, will get an updated version and it will make its public debut at the 2012 Australian International Motor Show in Sydney. The model will be named the LF-LC Blue Concept and its new color is inspired by the glossy base found on the naturally occurring opal stone in the outback.

An updated version of the Lexus LF-LC Concept might seem like something drastic but the only differences between the red one and this “new” one will be the colors. The blue shade will be combined with beige leather on the door panels and on the seats. More details on the updated Lexus LF-LC Concept will be announced at the Australian International Motor Show later on this month.

As a quick reminder, the “classic” Lexus LF-LC has a 5.8 liter V8 engine under its hood, backed up by two electric motors and a Ni-MH battery pack, which is allowing the model to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds before reaching a top speed of 208 km/h. The total output produced is 438 HP (444 PS / 327 kW).
