New Lexus LF-LC Concept at Australian Motor Show with 500bhp Hybrid powertrain

Lexus are teasing a new version of the LF-LC Concept with 4WD and a 500bhp hybrid powertrain for the Australian Motor Show.

When Lexus revealed the LF-LC Concept at the Detroit Motor Show at the start of 2012 our collective jaws dropped. It was a stunning two door coupe with the nose from the GS, a profile that had hints of the LFA, a stunning interior and the hope Lexus were brave enough to put it in to production.

By July it looked like Lexus were planning to put the LF-LC in to production, and that now seems almost certain with the release by Lexus of a teaser photo (above) of a new version of the LF-LC that’s heading for the Australian Motor Show in Sydney in October.

This time, Lexus are being a bit more¬†forthcoming¬†about what will propel the LF-LC, and we’re told it will be a hybrid powertrain developing more than 370kW (496bhp) and will have four wheel drive.

So far the teaser photo of the LF-LC and the brief information about what will underpin it are all we’ve got, but Lexus are promising more before the LF-LC shows in Sydney.

So it looks like we are on course for a the LF-LC to turn in to the Lexus LS Coupe (Lexus LC?) in the not too distant future.
