Lexus LFA Replacement Will be Based on LF-LC Concept

According to Haruhiko Tanahashi, the man behind the Lexus LFA, a new halo model for the Japanese automaker is already in development.

Tanahashi expects that the LF-LC concept will get the green light for production and will be the replacement for the LFA as the brand’s new halo model. He also believes that a model sitting above the future RC F coupe but at a lower price point than the LFA makes sense for Lexus.

Mark Templin, executive vice president of Lexus International, also confirmed that a new halo model was in the works, but wouldn’t confirm that it was based on the LF-LC concept. Templin also elaborated that more mainstream F-models are on their way as Lexus hopes to build the sub-brand into the likes of BMW’s M and Mercedes-Benz’s AMG. The RC F is expected to make its debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show sporting a 5.0-liter V8.
