Lexus LF-LC Blue concept unveiled in Australia
Lexus has unveiled a new take on the LF-LC concept — dubbed the LF-LC Blue — at the Australian motor show.
The LF-LC Blue builds on the LF-LC coupe concept that debuted at the 2012 Detroit auto show, featuring the same wildly sculpted aluminum and carbon-fiber body. Lexus is calling concept's color Opal blue, a reference to the iridescent gemstones found in Australia.
A hybrid-drive system sits beneath all that stunning bodywork. Total system output is 500 hp, which Lexus says is the highest output of any of its hybrids.
Lexus suggests that elements of LF-LC, which incorporates technology seen on the LFA supercar, preview future vehicles. The popularity of the sporty concept has even spurred rumors that it will enter production down the road.
