After first appearing at the Detroit Motor Show earlier this year, for this week’s Sydney Motor Show, Lexus has swapped the LF-LC’s burning red exterior for a lustrous Opal Blue finish, inspired by the natural base colour of the Australian gemstone.
You may have spotted Lexus’ LF-LC in the photo gallery we published from The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este at the weekend. Lexus went one step further than its static Concorso display, by actually driving the LF-LC on the roads around Lake Como in Italy.
After a successful premiere at the Detroit NAIAS Auto Show in January, Lexus’ hybrid 2+2 sport coupe makes its first European appearance at next week’s Geneva motor show.
This feels like a good-news story to me as we near the end of 2011. Toyota/Lexus who seemingly abandoned the sports car segment, first with the Supra in 2002 followed by the MR2 in 2007, are back and to use an old cliché, “this time they’re serious.”
