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.
