News Lexus To Take On All Super SUVs With One Of Their Own?

Lexus To Take On All Super SUVs With One Of Their Own?

What would make more sense, for Lexus, as a follow-up to the extraordinary LF-A supercar? An “LF-B” supercar or a take-no-prisoners super SUV? If you answered the latter, it seems as though you might be correct.

There are older rumours circulating about that Lexus will launch an LC F in the not too distant future. Its claim to power-fame might be a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 that will reportedly make in excess of 650-horsepower.

We’re thinking that should the LC F come, a super SUV, possibly inspired by the LF-1 Limitless concept that broke cover at last January’s Detroit Auto Show, could make sense. According to a Japanese publication, the base Limitless could be powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 with a possible hybrid electric motor upgrade. The V8 would feed the top-line truck.

When one considers that Mercedes has a GLE 63 and a GT R, that BMW has an X5 M and an M8, there’s no good reason as to why Lexus could not join the party.
