The Lexus LC 500 Racecar May Happen And It May Go Insane
You guessed it, this is yet another Lexus rendering that will leave you disappointed when you find out it is not real. We are disappointed too, but we feel there could be a tiny chance for this magnificent machine to happen. If nothing, Wald International or someone else could tune it. Ok, we get that it is an overkill in terms of aero pieces. Wings like this, massive diffusors and such a mean stance only certain racing cars still cherish are unnecessary. So, even if it came into existence, we cannot expect it to be as flamboyant as this.
Of course, this is just an amateur vision of the racing which could, looking like this, take part in any GT series. Actually, we cannot but wonder whether the designer – Jonsibal took inspiration from GT racing series cars. They are more or less the only machines with such incredibly large wings.
So, with the V8 engine rated at 467 hp, rear wheel drive and all new suspension system created specifically for the application, the LC 500 is for certain a car which could carry this burden on its back. Now, we have to wait for the F version first (it simply has to happen and move Lexus towards the 600hp mark) and then pray to car gods of all sorts for tuners to take on the job of tuning the thing to insanity.
Honestly, we do think the LC 500 simply cannot sell well enough to economically justify its development and production, however, it should do more in marketing terms for the brand than ten years of paying hefty prices for super bowl time and everything else really.
