New Lexus Race Car to Compete in Japanese Super GT Series

Lexus LF-CC Race Car

Lexus has announced a new race car that will compete in the Japanese Super GT Series GT500 class starting next season. The vehicle will replace the Lexus SC 430 currently used in the Super GT races.

Officially, this new race car is based off the LF-CC concept — however, it does bare a passing resemblance to the camouflaged coupe concept currently racing around the Nürburgring in Germany.

Testing of the new race car began today at the Suzuka Circuit — more details as they’re available.
