Over the past several years, Lexus has been churning out some really cool concepts.
If I had to name a favorite, it would be a bit tough to pick a numero uno; however, I think I can definitively say that the LF-LC is the best.
It has a fantastic exterior AND interior. More importantly, it would fulfill an empty gap in the luxury automaker's product portfolio. Would it be a volume product? Not likely.
BUT it would give BMW and Mercedes-Benz's big, bad luxury GTs a run for their money. We like competition.
Now if the latest news about a prototype LF-LC running around Japan are true, we're excited. IF the rumors about a 600 horsepower variant are true, we're going to flip our wigs. Although we can't verify the reports, we wager that one of the buff books may be onto something. They typically don't print things that aren't exhaustively researched.

Word on the Tokyo street is that there’s a Lexus LF-LC Coupe mule running around Japan packing a 600-hp twin-turbo version of the upcoming RC F’s 5.0-liter V-8. That power rating may be on the conservative side. We heard back in March of 2013 that Lexus was overwhelmed by the positive response to the swoopy coupe and decided to go on and green-light it. Until now there has been little to no information on the striking concept, other than the fact that the production version will most likely be called SC. There still isn’t much, but our sources confirm the monstrous twin-turbo V-8 will be the SC F. There’s a potent hybrid LF-LC/SC H whose powertrain will probably be the fruits of the BMW joint project and make around 500 hp. There will be a third engine, a base naturally aspirated V-8, that will produce a bit less power than the hybrid (450 hp) but get worse fuel economy...
