Default What do you think of this LC F rendering?


Like the post on the HP says, while the rumor mill thinks the LC F will get a 600-hp twin-turbo engine, there's been no official word yet. But that didn't stop CL for commissioning this exclusive render. What do you think?

Overall it looks pretty balanced to me, but that tall rear wing just doesn't quite fit what I think Lexus is trying to achieve with the LC. I think even the LC-F will be aimed more luxury GT than pure track car. I like the wheels a lot!

Kind of like the LFA Ring edition.

For the sake of rendering talk-
Hopefully they will have the hp to back it up with all the added down force accessories.

I'm not a fan of the side inlets on the front bumper. Hopefully they will look more like the current RCF's, with mesh instead of the vents.

The LCF will be a combination of the current RCF & LC500 styling, maybe a bit wider. Interested to see what Lexus does with it!

It looks awesome, I would opt for the retractable spoiler if they have it as an option. Also, this is a case of "be careful what you wish for", given the $180,000 price tag.

Exactly! Can't wait to hear from those that are currently whining the LC is under-powered at $100K. They'll be the same ones whining when it's $180k for 600hp. LOL

Yeah, I don't think anything a big as that wing would see production... But a retractable spoiler would be pretty cool.

. . . Mr. Sunshine . . . Nah, I think anything over 600 hp with a much needed forced induction torque curve would properly place this thing in Porsche turbo price range, but man-o-man is the new Porsche turbo s an absolute screamer at 2.5 0-60.

This car definitely looks the part and that all black with black aftermarket wheels in another thread is definitely the way to go with this car. This car's lines are much like the RC F as far as color choice which looks a bit awkward in most colors. The above, however, definitely looks the part even much more so than the the LFA which is pretty awkward looking as well.

Beauty is in the eye... I think the P-car looks dated as hell (some might call that "timeless;" not me). This, like the RC-F, doesn't look a whole lot like anything else on the road. And in the lighter colors, the lines really shine.

I don't disagree and I actually prefer the 997.2 over the 991s in terms of looks. 911s are an acquired taste. Some like them and some have liked them since childhood, some don't. My wife actually did not like 911s at all and thought they looked ugly. Her 997.2 cab is her favorite car now and it is the cheapest car we own.

The hood and front end area of the RCF is awkward. Lexus did a much better job in this area with the LC. I am going to grab an LC Saturday and spend a little more time with it.

Somebody needed more positive affirmations when they were young or just needs to get laid more often. Notice what's missing from that garage . . . a car for a hottie. Big surprise.
