The Lexus LF-LC Blue Concept Debuts at 2012 Sydney Auto Show. It is a followup to the original LF-LC that debuted in Detroit earlier this year. As you might expect, the car is shod in a color called ‘Opal Blue,’ and is inspired by the semi-precious opal stone found in the Australian Outback. The Advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive system features an Atkinson-cycle gas engine, combined with an “advanced high-energy battery pack” and an electric motor. According to Lexus, the gas/electric hybrid setup conspires to produce 500 horsepower, though the power split between gas and electric it not specified. “Its good looks mask some very exciting design and engineering innovations that will influence Lexus vehicles in the future,” said Lexus Australia Chief Executive Tony Cramb in a statement. “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.” Show-goers Down Under can enjoy the LF-LC Blue at the Australian International Motor Show from October 19th to the 28th.
