Lexus LF-LC Rumored To Get 600-HP Twin Turbo V-8

Follow Nelson

The upcoming production sport coupe based on the Lexus LF-LC concept may be even more powerful than we’d previously thought. Expected to wear the SC name badge, the new coupe was previously reported to offer two powertrain options: A 475-horsepower 5.0-liter V-8 engine based on the RC F’s unit; and a hybrid 3.5-liter V-6 with up to 500 horsepower.

But the latest report from Motor Trend indicates the top model could produce as much as 600 horsepower—and be a twin-turbocharged version of the 5.0-liter V-8. This model would wear the SC F badge.

That new 600-horsepower model would sit atop the other two offerings previously reported, making the standard SC a powerhouse in its own right. All told, according to Motor Trend, the SC range will consist of three models: the naturally aspirated V-8 SC, the hybrid SC H, and the peak performance SC F.

Whether any or all of this will pan out in the actual production reality remains to be seen, as the car isn’t expected to reach U.S. dealers until sometime in 2016 as a 2017 model.
