Lexus LF-LC concept headed to production

By Deeq on 21 Jul 2014 in New model, Concept cars

Attached Image Lexus' new RC coupe range will soon be joined by another shapely two-door - the luxury brand has officially confirmed that the LF-LC concept will enter into production in 2016.
 
Intended to slot above the RC as a niche-selling flagship, the production LF-LC will retain at least 90 percent of the concept's sleek styling, Lexus Europe vice president Alain Uyttenhoven said.

"The production LF-LC will not be a huge volume [car] for Lexus, but it will bring huge emotion," said Uyttenhoven.
Technical details for the range-topping 2+2 coupe aren't available, but rumors have suggested it will ride on a shortened version of the LS sedan's rear-wheel-drive architecture. Speculative reports have suggested that anything from the RC F's naturally-aspirated V8 to hybridized V6 or V8 engines could make their way under the hood.

It's unknown whether the LF-LC name will make to production, or whether a shortened LC moniker will be applied.
The LF-LC will be part of a Lexus growth plan that calls for a new model every year until 2020. After this year's debut of the NX compact crossover, the RC will follow in 2015, with the LF-LC set to launch in 2016.

The side profile oozes sexiness but we can scrap the front grill. It is as ugly as it can possibly get. 

 

Saw a comment elsewhere saying the front grill resembles the Predator.

I might have to agree!

Love the car and I'm glad it will be put into production, but I honestly died a bit inside after reading the title of this article. Toyota already has an unaffordable sports car and now they are adding another, where is my Supra?!!

I think the spindle grille looks pretty ok in this model.

 

It works for some models and looks ridiculous for others, like the new NX

So is this a competitor to the new S-Class Coupe? Time for BMW to relaunch the 8 Series!

The more I look at it, the more it shouts PREDATOR. Hahaha.

It's almost as if that is exactly what their intention was for. Shakes head.
