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

    467 HP isn't enough?

    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

    Shocking similarities! It's time for us to review the grand turismo vision LF-LC.

    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! :)

    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.
