Wow.
3.5l V6 turbo + hybrid 350 hp
4.6l V8 turbo 500 hp.
And the starting price of $120k+.
I'd expect more power out of 3.5l V6 turbo + hybrid though.

Nice find, Ryan. You must have done some searching to find that.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was also the foundation for (maybe) a future Toyota Supra. In fact, it has an almost identical roofline/windows to the last one in the 1990s.

That looks more like an IS-coupe than the next gen SC (which should be designed similar to the LF-LC).

Still, it looks good.

Add production-worthy fog lights and rear bumper+diffuser with "normal" exhausts, and you're set.

Dang that looks bad azz! Looks like a BMW 6series fighter to me! Only 500hp though? For $120,000? By the time it comes out, most likey 5years from now, 500hp will be laughable by then. Euro lovers will still be skeptical and critical. Just like on the new GS and IS. Lexus needs to stop making mediocre-ish performance cars and blow the Ms, RSs, and AMG Black Series' out of the water already! I know they can build it. So Build it!

I agree. Not into the styling and the performance is lacking ESPECIALLY at that price.

I've been hearing more and more conformation that this "SC" will be in the $120-under $200K range. Really going up market with this

Lexus is a premium classy brand just like Audi, Mercedes, and BMW. All three of the euro brands have many models over 100k, especially for their upgraded special models. Just sayin'

I have to concur. In fact they should have more models and variations with plush amenities and bonkers power trains. If Lexus wants to move upmarket well then things need to get a little more pricey and a little more exclusive. Cheapy models do no good other than sustain a cash flow but what's so special about every little CT or el cheapo interior ES? That money needs to go towards fine products that make the auto industry aspire too.

Ironically you have the MBZ, BMW and Audi moving downmarket and plugging "holes" so to speak in their line-ups. A super decontented 320i can now be had for über cheap, but for something like that, it's only about the badge.
