The Lexus LF-LC concept made a cannonball splash in Detroit last January for a car that didn’t even have a powertrain, but the first details and a teaser photo are creeping onto the internet offering new information.
As seen above, the teaser image shows that the car in its current form, which will be fully unveiled during the Sydney Auto Show this fall, keeps some of the concept’s styling. While the car bound for the Australian show won’t be a production version, it will be the result of Lexus’ engineer’s year of work after the original car generated a typhoon of positive responses.
Unfortunately, Lexus didn’t drop a silhouette photo or darkened teaser image to offer any clues as to whether or not the rest of the concept will remain intact, but it’s at least clear that the “afterburner” tail lights will stay.
Lexus also let on that the car will have 496 hp distributed to all four wheels via some sort of hybrid drivetrain. Specifics on which system the car will use are still unclear, but it could be a more powerful version of the LS600hL’s hybrid-electric V8 system.
