The Lexus LC is already a vision of excellence, the most badass Lexus since the LFA, the car we willed into existence, a Japanese Aston Martin.
As it sits, the Lexus LC comes with either a hybridized V6 or a naturally-aspirated V8, all revs and induction noise.
We should, however, expect a new version to come with twin turbos for an LC F, according to Car and Driver’s scoop: According to our source at Lexus, this high-performance powerplant is in essence two 8AR-type 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engines joined together at 90 degrees.
The twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 also will find its way into the GS F—making 550 horsepower—but for the LC F it will be turned up to 600 horsepower, with 470 lb-ft of torque.
As with the LC500, the F will use the company’s 10-speed automatic transmission.
