Toyota still thinking at the production of Lexus LF-LC Concept

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 23, 2012

Toyota officials are getting close to making a decision on whether to give the green signal to starting production on its highly praised Lexus LF-LC Concept car. According to Toyota production planner Karl Schlicht, “it’s looking better that we could possibly make it.” Schlicht said earlier this year that the LF-LC’s chances of entering production were 50/50.

Last January at the Detroit Motor Show, there was a zero chance of it getting produced. But at the Australian International Motor Show, Lexus displayed the new Lexus LF-LC Blue and it seemed likely that the concept car would get the green light. The LF-LC Blue is based on the model seen in Detroit.

It is equipped with the most powerful Lexus hybrid drive system the firm has created, with an output of up to 500bhp. The LF-LC Blue borrows technology from the LFA supercar and utilizes a mixture of carbonfibre and aluminium alloy materials.

Lexus said that the concept offers an ideal platform for the next-generation Advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive system. Lexus is currently looking into how it could engineer a vehicle similar to it in the future.
