Lexus has introduced the second iteration of the striking Lexus LF-LC concept at the 2012 Sydney Motor Show. On the outside, the most obvious difference from the original version shown at the Detroit Auto Show is the color. Instead of red; the concept is painted in blue.

According to Lexus, the new shade is inspired by the glossy base color found in naturally occurring semi-precious opal stone of outback Australia.The updates over the initial concept are more than skin deep though.

The blue LF-LC leverages on Lexus' extensive in-house experience in combining carbon fibre and aluminium alloy materials to achieve a light body mass. The result is an extremely taut body that responds quickly to driver’s inputs.

On the interior, Lexus has furnished the cabin with light beige suede leather on the seats and the door panels. The brushed metal trim and wood accents add a touch of class. The LCD display panels are lighted up in blue as well to complement the exterior colour.

The front-engined, rear-wheel drive concept is powered by Lexus’s next generation Hybrid Drive System. The 5.0L V8 petrol/electric powertrain generates 500 bhp, which is the most powerful of any Lexus hybrid setup. The Lexus LF-LC is able to record an acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in less than 5 seconds.

“LF-LC is part concept, part reality: the concept hints at what’s to come from Lexus, while the reality has us actively studying how we can engineer and build a vehicle like this in the future," commented Lexus Australia chief executive, Tony Cramb.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
