The Sport car, Lexus LC-F is phenomenal. Reportedly, the most powerful car from the Lexus, will debut in 2019. Although still counting the year, Lexus LC-F is ready to challenge Nissan GT-R Nismo, Mercedes-AMG and BMW M Division.
In sportscar market, especially Japan, Nissan GT-R dominates, even above the German manufacturer level. Realizing that, Lexus must develop LC-F to be better in order to be head-to-head with the Nissan GT-R. According to the announcement of the Japanese website Best Car Web, written by Carscoops, the GT-R has been titled near a high performance racing car rather than a powerful GT car loaded with luxury. That’s where Lexus challenged.
Yes, cannot be denied when talking about Lexus, especially LC, means talking about luxury cars. By adding the ‘F’ alphabet on Lexus LC-F means there is a blend of luxury and high performance in it. As an illustration, the current LC model, the LC 500 offers two engines. The first naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine, the second 3.5-liter V6 hybrid engine. To be able to compete with the strongest in the market, most Lexus can not make the V8 supercharged engine to achieve the desired 600 PS power. With such power supplies, enough to challenge the monsters which occupy the top ranks in its segment.
Of course, there are many other species to be developed by Lexus, so Lexus LC-F has a higher competitiveness and selling value. In terms of performance, in particular, there is still an increase in torque. Lexus targets a peak torque of about 686 NM, the equivalent of an average torque in its segment, 672 NM. No less important, Lexus can provide weighting diet. That way, Lexus LC-F can challenge the ruler in the sports car segment with more confidence. Unfortunately, there is no information about tightening the weight of the Lexus. Though one of the biggest shortcomings of its brother namely Lexus RC-F is the excessive weight.
The latest news, Lexus LC-F equipped with a machine capable of spraying power up to 600 PS, planned to debut in 2019. In addition, Lexus also plans to pair the machine on the latest generation of Lexus GS-F.
