2018 Lexus LF-Lc Fuel economy, Redesign

2018 Lexus LF-Lc front

The new 2018 Lexus LF-Lc has widespread hips, flaring front fenders, and small production-friendly wheels. The rear end of the concept is likely to remain fairly unchanged, apart from for the ornamental taillights and the conspicuous bumper.

2018 Lexus LF-Lc Exterior, Interior

Though we expect the production model to have a close resemblance to the concept, just like with most concept cars it might not roll into showrooms with the exact resemblance of the concept form. Its basic exterior profile of an elongated hood, shallow-raked windshield and a swooping roof line is most likely to remain the same for the production model. The greatest change on the front end of the concept, will most likely be the bringing forward of the headlights. The sunken headlights on the concept appear cool, but they are likely to cause a lot of additional aerodynamic drag. The front brake cooling inlet is likely to be reduced and further closed off than can be seen on the concept.

The interior 2018 Lexus LF-Lc is a complete wild card. The amazing effect of the concept’s interior might make it to the production model, except for the futuristic pedals, steering wheel, and the ultramodern instrument cluster. In case this 2018 Lexus LF-Lc becomes a stand-alone model, it might actually be revamped with top-class materials since it could compete with the likes of BMW i8 or even Audi R8. This would mean distinctive leather seats, leather covers on the dash and in door panels, as well as authentic wood veneers.

However, at the moment it is expected that the 2018 Lexus LF-Lc will have a standard array of features, which include automatic climate control, navigation, CD player with iPod and Bluetooth connectivity. It is also anticipated that the retractable glass roof on the concept form will make it to the production model.

It is believed to have an advanced version of the 5.0-liter V-8 found in the Lexus RC-F, along with a pair of electric motors. The prototype is aiming to achieve a 500-horsepower output since it was benchmarked against a BMW 6 Series, Porsche 911, and a Maserati GranTurismo. The V-8 will most likely combine with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

The 2018 Lexus LF-Lc is likely to be equipped with the 5.0-liter V-8 found in the Lexus RC-F that produces 467 HP at 7,100 RPM. This engine consumes highway fuel at approximately 25 Miles per Gallon (MPG) and 16 MPG on city fuel. The top speed is approximately 168 MPH and acceleration is 0-60 MPH in 4.4 seconds.

This final model is likely to be a sporty Lexus coupe with 2+2 seating. The car is expected to be presented with 2 powertrain possibilities: an updated version of the 467-HP 5.0-liter V-8 powering and a new hybrid system combining Lexus’ newest 3.5-liter V-6 with an electric motor for a total output of over 500 HP.

2018 Lexus LF-Lc Release date and price

The new Lexus LF-Lc is anticipated to go on sale in 2018, which means we are most likely to see it land as a 2019 model. The LF-Lc will range somewhere between $100,000 and $150,000, given that it is almost ready for production and has an awesome styling and stalwart drivetrain. Hybrid options seem inevitable in order to attain both fuel efficiency and great performance.
