Any ideas what this new vehicle might be?

Many are expecting the launch of the production version of the LF-LC, i.e. The LC series. But, with the tyre track teaser, are we really expecting just a LC 500 and LC 500h? LC F perhaps?

Or is it another concept (note the URL)?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I wonder what it will be.

 

The black lines on the road must be a hint.

Not that I'm answering your question, but one news outlet noted that the tyre marks indicate the car is fitted with LSD.

Lance you've sat in the prototype for this model.

 

Remember we had the blue one at a function you and Chris attended?

Do you still have photos of that?

 

Lexus have kept the production version fairly close to the concept car in my opinion.

 

Now what about guessing the price for it here in Oz?

I thought I would share these photos I took of the LF-LC prototype at that function. (taken with my mobile phone)

it looks pretty close.

Ah, here's the photos and our write-up ...

On pricing ... It's hard to pick a starting point for setting the price.

My usual rule of thumb is to have a look at the Audi equivalent (base model, without all the optional items that Lexus throw in as standard), then take away a few thousand.  But there isn't an Audi equivalent for this.

The media are pointing to the BMW 6-series as the competitor.  But it's hard to tell how Lexus sets its prices against BMWs.  What's the direct competitor to the GS F?  The GS F is priced significantly lower than the M5 and, in fact, its driveaway price is less than the BMW 550i M Sport before on-roads.  Let's assume the 550i is the logical competitor to the GS F; if we apply the same pricing strategy to the LC 500, then the LC 500 would be a compelling buy against the 650i even if it is priced at $230K driveaway (650i is $231,900 before on-roads).  But a $230K price tag would make it similar in price to the flagship LS 600h F Sport!

In conclusion, my guess won't be any better than anyone else's, and my gut feel is to agree with others' predictions of between $180K and $200K, driveaway.
