Lexus unveils LC500-based race car

Toyota Lexus LC500

Lexus has unveiled its LC500-based race automobile, which is slated to rival in the 2017 Japan Super GT500 series.

The racer is part of the hype train for the brand name’s new LC500 cars which is due to hit Australia in 2017.

The Japanese brand-new halo car has been flaunted in 2 guises in the past, the 348kW/530Nm 5.0-litre V8 LC500 Coupe from the 2016 Detroit Show and the more mellow 3.5-litre V6 hybrid LC500h revealed at the 2016 Geneva motor program, all of which followed on from the brand’s LF-LC idea unveiled back at the 2012 Detroit motor show.

The LC500 is improving the Japanese brand name’s back to the future sports car renaissance, which initially began by Lexus’ LFA supercar and then parent business Toyota’s everyman’s 86 sports car.

The racing variation will weigh somewhat more than one tonne and will be functioned by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine.

Lexus assume that while the LC500 was created as a grand tourer of sorts it is quickly adaptable for racing.

The LC500 race automobile is kitted out with broadened fenders, muscular skirts, big spoiler and rear diffuser and several vents for downforce and heat extraction.
