>A report coming from Lexus Enthusiast is claiming the Japanese automaker has just trademarked the LC 500 and LC 500h names, the clearest indication yet of the future halo model’s official designation. The names also indicate other details, such as the likely use of a 5.0-liter V8, the very same one found in the RC F, which produces nearly 470 hp. And it should go without saying that the LC 500h will be a hybrid. Like the GS 450h, which uses a 3.5-liter V6, the hybrid system will add one liter. With that in mind, there are two possible engine configurations here: either an all-new 4.0-liter V6 or V8, or the 5.0-liter V8 hybrid setup found in the LS 600h. We’ll know more in the coming months because a 2016 launch is being targeted.

idk I kinda like it. V8 hybrid sounds cool. also reminds me of the Toyota FT1

>Being this autistic
The RCF underperformed not the engine, it was too heavy, the transmission was focused on something other than sport, and the chassis was built from scrap parts.
You're just like those Honda Civic faggots who boast about their low end torque but don't know how large first gear and a bigger diff ratio play into the mix.
The engine is great, makes great power, and his reliable, if it were put into a better car, it would have been amazing. It seems it's you who's gotten memed friend
>>
I think it looks really good, actually - surprisingly close to the original LF-LC concept.

I wonder if anyone has ever actually seen these cars IRL - the polarizing design of the spindle grill is part of it's power. Every time I see one IRL I end up taking a second look because it's so stark and different from literally anything else. At first I wasn't sure whether I liked it (and to be fair there are a lot of little elements in the earlier "L-Finesse" cars I still find unattractive), but the end result is that it's grown on me.

The problem Lexus had before was that no one really noticed them - they looked more or less like any other Euro-inspired luxury vehicle.

No one can see this thing on the streets and not go "whoa wtf" and that's their goal.

yeah it'll add 1 liter to the name. so like if a car has a 3.0L engine, it could be called an SC300. but if it has a hybrid system as well as the 3.0L, it would be called a SC400h. I think.

This is the LC500 though..
Is there gonna be an LC-F with the V10?

I highly doubt that a V10 will be coming.

However, it's practically a safe bet that we're going to see a higher performance model since Lexus is in a state of adding hybrid drive and turbocharging everything. We might even see a cheaper version with the 4.6L (maybe even the 3.5L) to target the 640i.
>>
>>14219471
We'll see.

For 2016, though, Lexus says that they'll have a team racing the RC F in GT3. But have not announced if they'll be committed to a series or even what races they'll participate in.

There's also Paul Gentilozzi & Scott Pruett running a RCF GT3 in the Weathertech series's GTD class, but that effort isn't supposed to race until after the first two endurance races (Daytona & Sebring).

Equipping a car with a manual isn't hard for any big automaker really.

We can only assume that the Lexus market research team did their homework and discovered that the majority of potential buyers for this thing would prefer an automatic.

BMW does offer a 6MT on the 6-Series, but how many of those variants they actually sell? Probably a lot less than the automatic.
