New Lexus LC F Rendering Brings Possible Track Edition to Mind

Lexus LC F Track Edition

Best Car has new predictions for the eagerly-awaited Lexus LC F, with the Japanese magazine claiming the high-performance coupe will be released in 2021 with 660 horsepower.

Accompanying this rumor is the above rendering, which is said to be based on insider information. There are plenty of carbon fiber elements meant to reduce weight, but the overall look is ludicrous at first glance. How close could this be to an actual production model?

It all comes down to the newly released RC F Track Edition:

Put side-by-side, does the Best Car LC F rendering really look out of place? An even better question — what’s to stop the eventual LC F from getting a similar Track Edition?

Comments
My eyes fell off, but orange brake calipers with the F logo would have made it perfect.

Not for an F-badge. The LC is competing with near the best of the best. It dresses the part, but the F version is going to need that twin turbo v8 north of 600HP

Not for and F model. The LC F will be competing with cars like the M6 which nearly has 600hp and the S65 Coupe, with more than 600hp

its enough for the standard version but the F needs 600+hp
Shocking similarities! It's time for us to review the grand turismo vision LF-LC.

Wow, yes please!
This is a must.

Every F element looks fine on the LC500 but it doesn't need the side vents at all, they'll spoil the smooth surface of that part.

Given that the F-engine is the basic on the LC500, Lexus could have a secret weapon in its arsenal. I'm hoping for a twin-turbo V8 with at least 560hp.

The LC F will have 600hp minimum. Hopefully we get the convertible RC also.
The LF-CC was the concept of the RC.

Of course, the exception is the LFA, but to my eyes, since the LC is offered in "base" with the smooth front fenders, it's not an F without the signature fender vertical scoop on each side. Those are a must! :)

doesn't need one, theres already scoops in the rear
The vents are also functional for cooling the rear brakes, so I'm cool with them!

Is nobody thinking that maybe the engine in the LFA project X could be used in the LC F?
I think the LC F will probably have a V10, given it's proportions. But it might affect the price, so I'm not too sure.

The starting price would be at least $170,000 in that case.

LC-F with V10 And Lightweight Hybrid Technology like Mclaren P1, LaFerrari (Small Battery + Recovery System)

600 HP is Fast , i don't need stupid turbine , i need hi revving NA Engine for Sharp Engine Response , and F1 engine sound

not 9000 but 8500 rpm is enough , keep the cost of v10 down and make it in to the production

100,000 $ or lower for LC500 <same as 991> , 170,000$ for LC-F <same as a GT3 , 991 Turbo>

LFA Sound is ONE OF THE BEST ENGINE SOUND IN THE WORLD , Better than Maserati , better than the Ferrari , Better than the Lamborghini

LEXUS shound make it happen again

Turbo isn't everything , see the porsche GT3RS no turbo but it so fast , and sound so good too.

there is many wrong things in your comment...
first...using the same technology as the P1....you do know that the P1 costs more than 800,000$? you want that technology in a 170,000$?
and they can't use the LF-A engine...it won't work...the LC-F is too heavy....it's not built to be like the LF-A, it's not a super car.....
and the LC-F will never cost 170,000$ if the normal LC500 costs 100,000$....no one will pay 70,000$ more to get another 100 HP....the LC-F will cost about 120-130k $...no more....because then people will start complaining.....
you can't compare the LC-F with the GT3RS...the porsche is stripped down....there is nothing in the car....the LC-F is a luxury performance coupe...not to break records.....they have to develop a new engine for the LC-F...v8 with TURBO....or even use the 5.0L currently in the RC-F with that TURBO....this is the only way they can compete in the numbers game....
I am expecting a twin-turbo V8 with 600+hp for LC F, personally.

That rendering in molten pearl looks great! Hope to hear something concrete from Toyota/Lexus on this in the future

Is nobody thinking that maybe the engine in the LFA project X could be used in the LC F?
In theory, it should be the best engine possible for the LCF. 5.3 Liter stroked version of the LFA V10. It makes easily 645 - 650 HP while retaining the same HP/Liter as the LFA (116 HP/Liter for LFA and 118 HP/Liter for LFA NE). Revs up to 9500 rpm like the LFA 4.8 Liter V10.

Problem is, LCF might still be took heavy for LFA V10 since it is built for power at high revs. LCF is not supposed to be too expensive. The LFA V10 due to its exotic construction and F1 DNA (it was partly built in the Toyota F1 facility), it is too expensive to put in a car that will cost less than $150,000. Therefore, I think Lexus might be looking at putting a cheaper twin turbo V8 to get 600+ HP. That will give the low end torque a 4100 HP car needs and also the horsepower at the top end. Albeit, with much lower rev limit.

As much as I'd love to see the V10 in the LC-F I personally think the LFA V10 was a one time, exclusive "see what we can do" engineering masterpiece. I think Lexus will keep that exclusive to the LFA and develop the twin-turbo V8 we've all been hearing about. Additionally, with all the engine downsizing initiatives by automakers, I doubt Lexus will put such a large, thirsty engine into the LC-F, but considering Lexus likes to go against that mind-set (V8 in GS-F/RC-F vs TTV6 in most rivals) I may be proven wrong. Overall, I highly highly doubt we'll ever see the V10 again, even though I'd pay anything to get an LC with it or even the new LS whenever it comes out. Oh, I also have to say the only gasoline car luring me to test drive it (after getting my Tesla) is the LC, which is really saying something about what Lexus has done.
New render looks nice. I just personally hate those wheels and never want to see them again on anything :)
T
what "render"? thats just a p/s.
B
i think 1LR-GUE V10 is Exclusive for LFA , it is master piece , but i want to see that again

they already have know - how , why other company like Audi , BMW can make v10 to mass production (look at the price of the R8 v10)

Porsche has a track monster 911GT3 , Lexus Should have LC-F v10

or lexus do like the porsche do >>>> do it both

>> "Turbo" for the people who love to said about the number geek nerd or something , "NA Hi Revving" for People who love to drive , people who love something old school "Sound , Throttle Response , Cornering , Feeling and Fun" or something like AKIO said in Detroit autoshow

---------
if they put that V10 engine in the LC

the engine is more lower (Due to dry sump v10) and much lighter engine will make the LC-F lighter than the LC500

combo with weight reduction component (1.5 -1.6 ton) and great sound ( turn my face smile :) everytime i turn the key ) i think LC-F will be the great Track machine and great luxury car

but i not sure the 10 speed transmission can handle 9500 rpm engine

========
, i like some word in NSX Motortrend review

leave the over complexity to german , but do thing that (Honda) japan can do so well

SIMPLE and FUN

Lightweight , NA , Handling

NSX is disappoint for me , OK it fast , it corner well but lack of passion , lack of something to be a supercar like the LFA

Supercar is about FUN , make you smile , make you feel special every time you drive it , if AKIO (LEXUS) TOYODA want the LC to be a future classic car , the LC should be special. it should be a supercar

i think the "one lexus" now i am sure it will be the future classic supercar is the LFA , the LC500 the v8 is great but v10 is more Exotic , more special i think

i don't want to see "NO" they will not put V10 in LC, i want to see "Yes" :D
