Lexus LC Prototype Nürburgring

A prototype of the upcoming Lexus flagship coupe has been spotted on the Nurburgring during a high-speed performance test — here are some photos from Japanese website Response:

It’s hard to see much more than the overall shape and size with this level of camouflage, though I have to say that this angle reminds me of an LFA crossed with an RC:

Response also has some new information on the upcoming coupe — let’s paraphrase based on the Japanese to English machine translation:

Powertrain will surpass the 478ps of RC F, the LC boasts the 490ps [481 horsepower] and is equipped with a hybrid that combines the five liter V8 engine and an electric motor. The Porsche “911 Turbo” is the benchmark, and Lexus hopes to match the acceleration and cornering performance of the masterpiece.

According to the spy photographer, the interior has an auto control touch screen systems and a twin 12.3 inch LCD infotainment system.
