New Lexus LF-CC Race Car For 2014 Japanese Super GT Series

By -

The LF-CC concept car has wowed us since its official debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. Today Lexus Racing has unveiled a new race car based on the LF-CC concept which will compete in the 2014 Japanese Super GT Series. The new LF-CC race car will replace the trusty SC 430 which has run in the GT 500 class for nearly 7 years.

Lexus says that this new race car is based off the LF-CC Concept and will be competing in the GT 500 class of the Super GT Series. A shakedown of this LF-CC race car is scheduled today at the Suzuka Circuit in Japan. Not much other information has been divulged but hope to share more info as it comes. 

Since the LF-CC is just a concept car and not a production car, we strongly feel that this is going to be a race car based on the rumored RC F that has surfaced recently. With the orange and black paint scheme we have a strong feeling this is something that evolved from the IS F CCS-R project. The bold new spindle grille from the LF-CC concept is a sure giveaway that this race car is going to be mean. We expect those blacked out headlights to change once the Lexus RC is officially unveiled later this year. 

For now you can drool at this fine Lexus Racing artwork clad with carbon fiber aero, TRD Japan goods, sticky Bridgestone Potenzas and hopefully an expanded racing program for Lexus in the future!
