First Lexus LF-LC Concept in blue color for 2012 Australian Motor Show


The Lexus LF-LC Concept is getting close to the production phase as the company refining the concept model according to its announcement back in August, and today the company has released the latest iteration of the Lexus LF-LC Concept in blue color since its last inception at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year.

The new Lexus LF-LC Blue Concept is bestowed with a new hue that is inspired by the glossy color found in the semi-precious opal stone indigenous to Australia. Whatever the case, the blue glossy color provides a realization of a production model to come. To contrast with the glossy blue theme, Lexus also combined it with very light beige leather seats and door panels. Other than that, everything is much the same as the Detroit version.

According to Lexus of Australia, Tony Cramb, “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.”

The super luxury sports coupe is constructed with a carbon fiber and aluminum body to help reduce the curb weight. The supercar features Lexus’ Advanced Hybrid Drive system that consists of a powerful, efficient Atkinson cycle engine paired with an electric motor. The combined power is said to be around 499 horsepower (372 KW or 507 PS) for the rear wheels. Power for the electric motor is provided by an advanced high-energy battery pack.
