Lexus LF-LC turns BlueThu, 18 Oct 2012 00:00:00 -0700
Lexus are taking the LF-LC Concept to the Australian Motor Show to show what they’ve done since Detroit. Painted it Blue seems to be the answer.
But it seems all Lexus has actually managed to do to the LF-LC Concept since the Detroit Motor Show in January is paint it a fetching shade of blue. Which feels a bit of a let down, even if it is a pretty shade of Opal Blue.
Perhaps we had expectations of something even more dramatic, or perhaps even a production version of the very appealing L:F-LC? But no, it’s just a new coat of paint.
But we should probably be pleased that Lexus are so pleased with the reception the LF-LC got at Detroit that they’ve felt the need to do nothing more than give it a coat of paint, which points firmly to the LF-LC heading for production as the Lexus LS Coupe.
About the only bit of new news on the LF-LC is that it’s powered by a 5.0 litre hybrid powertrain which Lexus says is the most powerful hybrid they’ve made with 500bhp from its 5.0 litre V8, electric motor and batteries.
Let’s hope the next time we see the Lexus LF-LC Concept it’s looking ready for production.
