Lexus LF-LC Debuts in Blue at the 2012 Australian International Motor Show

Lexus has unveiled the second version of the LF-LC concept, which is now covered in a unique Opal Blue and is debuting at the 2012 Australian International Motor Show. According to Lexus, the Opal Blue exterior is inspired by the lustrous base color found in the naturally occurring semi-precious opal stone of outback Australia.

The LF-LC is powered by a new high-energy battery pack that provides greater power from a smaller battery than those currently used in Lexus' range of hybrid vehicles. Combined, the LF-LC Blue concept's gas/electric hybrid powertrain develops 500hp - the most of any Lexus hybrid.

"For decades, Lexus has been synonymous with hybrid drivetrains, superior build quality, comfort and reliability," Lexus Australia's Tony Cramb said. "With the LF-LC we now reinforce our design and technology credentials. The LF-LC is absolutely stunning. Its good looks mask some very exciting design and engineering innovations that will influence Lexus vehicles in the future.


"LF-LC is part concept, part reality: the concept hints at what's to come from Lexus, while the reality has us actively studying how we can engineer and build a vehicle like this in the future."
