Lexus has unveiled a LF-LC GT concept for the Gran Turismo 6 PS3 game. It's
planned for distribution in a free update due to be released this spring.
The Lexus LF-LC GT Vision Gran Turismo was developed to answer fans who "want to race world competitions in their dream car". Design and development was undertaken targeting entry in races such as the Super GT and the Nurburgring 24 hour race.
The Luxury coupe concept LF-LC base model was a future study model by Lexus announced at the 2012 Detroit Motor Show. Details of this car includes many features that are designed to evoke emotion, such as the shape of the tail lamps inspired by afterburners of a jet aircraft.
The concept car could also preview the racing version of the LF-LC, a future production model. According to rumors published by the EVO magazine, the LF-LC road car is very close to being production ready. It's expected to feature a hybrid V8 powertrain capable of producing 500 hp. The Lexus LF-LC could be revealed in 2016 as a 2017 model and it would compete with luxury sports cars like the Maserati GranTurismo or Mercedes-AMG GT.
