Lexus is going to be bringing something new to Detroit, the Lexus LF-LC production version.

In case you have forgotten, here is what the LF-LC concept looked like when it was shown in early 2012.



There will be 2 versions available upon release: the LC 500 and LC 500h. The first uses a V8 5.0-liter naturally aspirated engine with 477 PS and 530 Nm and mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The second one is a 3.5-liter V6 producing 313 PS combined with an electric motor that produces 220 PS. Combined output sits at 476 PS.

Seems to be lacking in those aggressive bumper angles I like and what looks to be a piece of plastic breaking up the front grille into two parts.

Having owned 2 Lexus SC coupes in the past, I really can't wait to see this in full. I just hope they release it under the SC name plate and don't use 'LC' although I can see good reasons for 'LC' over SC. At the end of the day tho, it IS the SC's successor.

Automotive News has put out a summation of all the debuts that will be happening at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Lexus could have one of the hits of Detroit, or at least some of the biggest news. The brand is expected to show a new model called the LC, a full-size, rear-wheel-drive grand touring coupe targeting the Mercedes-Benz SL.

The LC will use a new rwd modular platform that will go on to underpin future versions of all Lexus rwd cars, including the IS, GS, RC and LS. It also will also use the 5.0-liter V-8 from the RC F and GS F and will be paired with a new Aisin 10-speed automatic transmission. It'll be a low-volume seller, probably starting in the $100,000 range.
Other vehicles that will be debuting in Detroit include the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the next Chrysler Town & Country, the Honda Ridgeline, the Lincoln Continental and the Chevrolet Cruze hatchback.

Hopefully it actually is going to be the LF-LC since I have yet to see confirmation from anywhere else, although timing is right. Plus that teaser image sure seems to suggest something fun and sporty.
