Spy Shots: Lexus LF-LC Prototype Spotted in Germany

Lexus LF-LC Prototype

A Lexus LF-LC prototype has been spotted in Germany near the Nürburgring — Autoblog has some very clear photos of the camouflaged coupe:

Despite the image quality, the camouflage makes it so that only the most basic details of the production design are visible. One notable aspect of the prototype — there’s some foam or cardboard being used to deform the shape of the hood:

(Perhaps the more important element of this story is the location — after an Lexus RC F prototype was seen in the same building in 2013, video of the vehicle on the Nürburgring soon followed.)

Looking forward to properly seeing the production version by early next year. In the meantime that 'Starlight Twirl' paint job is growing on me.

Looking forward to it. But I gotta feeling this will put a bit of a damper on LFA resale values.... Note 1: Wish this will be called the SC and not the LC... Note 2: That's some ugly sunken wheel offsets... Lexus needs to get with the times and get the wheels FLUSH in the production model.

Hello guys! I'm a new Member! !!! Lexus super fan for over 15 years now... all the way from Lagos, Nigeria!!! Shout out & Plenty of Respect to KREW for developing such a wonderful site... Thumbs up man! I'd like to comment on the LF-LC concept... I see so many comments with concerns over the engine, german competition with more powerful engines etc etc, to me that's not a problem, a retuned 5.0 Liter RCF engine would be perfect for the LC 500, and whatever configuration they plan for the F version should be just fine! Personally, I don't really care. MY MAIN CONCERN IS THE SIZE OF THE CAR!!! IT JUST LOOKS SO LITTLE!!!! I mean, look at how short that sloping hood is. To have an idea of just how small, compare it to the size of the greenhouse!!! Isn't the LC supposed to be Lexus' flagship coupe? Like a 2-door LS? It looks barely a few mm longer in profile to the RC! This is my only dissapointment! I would just LOVE to buy a sexy Lexus coupe with some serious road presence! When will Lexus have a large, intimidating 2 door such as the 6 series or S Class coupe??? With how tiny the RC is (3-Series, C-Class esque) , I was definitely hoping for something larger and more menacing for LC, but these production ready prototype images shows no such luck... No matter how excellently the LC is designed, it needs some size to give it the right amount of road presence. With RC already in the line-up, we could def do with something larger. My 2 cents.
