An evolutionary version of the Lexus LF-LC supercar concept will makes its world debut at the 2012 Sydney motor show.

The LF-LC coupe (pictured below) was first displayed at the 2012 Detroit motor show at the start of the year. The second, related version in Sydney will provide further information about a car that’s still three to four years away from production.

A Lexus source says the Sydney show car will showcase “advanced materials and construction processes” that could be applied to the production LF-LC.

Expect those materials to include carbon fibre, which accounted for two-thirds of the $750,000 Lexus LFA supercar.

“It would be silly of us not to use what we learned from building the LFA for other models,” added our insider.

The two-plus-two-seater LF-LC will be a relatively affordable supercar compared to the LFA

The concept should prove to be one of main head-turners at the 2012 Sydney motor show,

The sporty two-door’s design takes plenty of cues from the LFA but also has an abundance of conceptual ideas, including its striking tail-lights that are said to be inspired by the afterburners of jet-fighters.

The concept’s performance should glow sufficiently red with a 370kW petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain that distributes its power to all four wheels, differentiating the Sydney show car from the Detroit LF-LC concept that was rear-wheel drive.

    Exciting news. Lexus is again stepping in the right direction. Is that an official teaser? Is the concept going to be blue? If so, I reckon it would look brilliant. 
    Would it also be a ‘supercar’? I wish Lexus would come up with an SC replacement rather than another supercar – something that is cool, good to drive and more affordable by the average luxury car buyer.
