    Both the Red and Blue LC look really good.

    What's ironic is that I was visioning this car today in USB and here it is. Love it!

    Hmmm..... as far as I know Ultrasonic Blue 2.0 is suppose to be Fsport or F car only?? So does this means there is a LC500 Fsport along the "Luxury" edition of LC500?

    Shouldn't the color be called Opal Blue, because the LF-LC concept was shown in blue at the Australian Auto Show with the color based on the Opal Stone? Would be cool if it will.

    Looks good in my favorite Lexus color! Maybe they're testing the F version in mule form...? Maybe, because USB is associated with F/FSport. Anyways, fantastic! Can't wait to see it in orange, white, black, and grey!

    LC is special car so it doesnt need a sport trim to use USB color

    Talk around the Detroit Auto Show was that there would be no F SPORT variant of the LC. I was told that everyone buying this car would expect it to have the best possible performance, and that an F SPORT appearance package is off-putting.

    Remains to be seen if this is true, but I have no reason to doubt it.

    From the article, it appears that a promotional video was being filmed. This is not a test mule.

    I am a HUGE ambassador of USB - heck I own one and wouldn't have it any other color on the IS, BUT, for some reason it "lessens" the panache of the LC. o_O So I agree with you and for the first time ever, not liking USB, at least from this pic.

    Exactly mine and a couple other members' thoughts that we posted a while back. ;) The only other (future) variant will be the all out twin-turbo V8 "F"ire-breather :D

    I am hoping an entirely new and exclusive color will be created for the LC to accentuate it as flagship! I wonder how such a color would be characterized? bold, elegant, and premium ...

    Like you, I really hope that they realise the Opal Blue colour - that colour looked amazing on the LF-LC. It would no doubt look brilliant on the LC as well. The thing is though, the colour of the spotted LC does appear to be the Ultrasonic Blue/Ultrasonic Blue 2.0
    Opal Blue has a cooler tone, whilst being darker, stronger and more complex. USB is warmer and more emotional.

    I agree. But who says this is an LC 500? ;)

    Wonder why they taped over the Lexus logo on the grill?
