The Lexus LC isn’t even on sale yet but it’s already spawned a motorsport variant. The new LC race car has been designed for Japanese touring car series Super GT and will be going up against similar race cars based on the Acura NSX and Nissan GT-R when it starts running next year.

Up until about a year ago Caterham was planning to launch a mid-engine sports car to take on the Porsche Cayman and its ilk. The car was axed before Caterham had even shown it but today we have some images from the company hired to design it.

It was one of the stars of this month’s Monterey Car Week and now you can actually own it. We’re talking about Ferrari [NYSE:RACE] Enzo designer Ken Okuyama’s Kode57, a coachbuilt supercar based on Ferrari running gear and currently available for order.

You'll find all these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.
