Lexus is hitting the hybrid track with the launch of the LF-LC recently in Australia. By the looks of this car, they are springing forward on the heels of the Lexus LFA supercar. Referred to as the Lexus LF-LC Blue Hybrid concept, it is certainly a dazzling sight. But it is what is on the inside that counts, so let’s get down to specs.
Lurking under the sleek hood is an advanced Lexus hybrid drive system pushing out 500 horses. That is quite a bang from a battery pack! The svelte hybrid goes way heavy on lightweight carbon fiber, yet the overall appearance is aggressive and agile. A high-energy battery pack paired with an efficient Atkinson cycle combustion engine create the guts for this model, which is the most powerful Lexus hybrid to date.
