Lexus to Debut LC 500 and LC 500h Coupe at Detroit Auto Show?

Lexus LC 500 Detroit

According to Peter Lyon of Motoring Australia, Lexus will debut the LC coupe in Detroit with two powertrains — the LC 500 and the hybrid LC 500h:

[The LC 500 will use] The same 351kW/530Nm 5.0-litre V8 propelling the RC F and GS F will most likely be married to a world-first 10-speed automatic transmission supplied by Aisin, which will aid performance efficiency.

The LC 500h on the other hand, will employ an all-new 3.5-litre V6 ‘multi-hybrid’ for rear-drive models, that will also be offered on the next-generation LS.

Based on the rumor, the LC 500h would have a revised version of the GS 450h’s hybrid powertrain using a redesigned engine and hybrid system. Lyons reports the LC 500h could have a 3.5 V6 engine with 308hp and an electric motor with 217hp, producing a combined 470 horsepower.

There’s also a passing mention of the LC F:

As the all-new LC 500 and LC 500h will debut in production form at Detroit we can look forward to a hot ‘F’ version in 2018, a coupe rumoured to be fitted with a circa-450kW (603hp) 4.0-litre V8 boosted by twin electric turbochargers.
