Lexus LF-LC Coupe to Have Twin-Turbo 600+ Horsepower V8 Engine?

Lexus LF-LC SC 600 Horsepower

Automobile Magazine has an article on potential powertrains for the upcoming Lexus production model based on the LF-LC concept:

Based on the next-generation Lexus LS, the new two-door will offer three potent powertrains: a high-output version of the brand’s 5.0-liter V-8, a hybrid setup making around 500 hp, and a range-topping F with a twin-turbo V-8 that could top 600 hp. Lexus hopes the revival of the SC name will evoke memories of the elegant SC coupe from the 1990s.

The Lexus LS hasn’t really filled its flagship shoes since the 1990s, and the sensational LFA was a hypercar with little real-world appeal. A high-style, high-performance coupe that’s more accessible could bring cachet to Lexus. That’s “accessible” in reference to the LFA, of course. The SC should push past the $100,000 mark, relatively unfamiliar territory for Lexus.

This information is identical to a Motor Trend from last year, right down to the idea that Lexus will resurrect the SC nameplate despite trademarks for LC 500 & LC 500h.

No matter, I can’t mention this article without highlighting this passage:

The Lexus LS hasn’t really filled its flagship shoes since the 1990s, and the sensational LFA was a hypercar with little real-world appeal.

There’s so many levels of wrong in this sentence, I’m embarrassed for whoever wrote it.
