Lexus LF-LC Blue Concept Debuts Down Under

Lexus has revealed a LF-LC Blue concept at the Australian International Motor show. The only difference from the LF-LC shown at Detroit earlier, is that the new version swaps that the burning red exterior for a Opal Blue finish, inspired by the natural base colour of the Australian gemstone.

The concept features lightweight carbon fibre and the next generation of Lexus’s industry-leading full hybrid powertrain.

Dubbed Advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive, it features a new, smaller, more powerful high-energy battery pack than those used in Lexus’s current full hybrid model range.

Lexus does not say much about the numbers, only stating the full petrol-electric system in the LF-LC produces a maximum 500bhp, more power than any other Lexus hybrid.

The concept is not destined for production, but does hint at what is to come from Lexus in the near future.
