Racer Lexus LC500 at 2017 SEMA?



Jonsibal, an automotive artist and consultant specializing in automotive design work, has recently posted a rendering on Facebook of what seems to be a racer Lexus LC500. It's part of a project he's working on with Lexustuned.

We probably won't see this rendering brought to life but one can dream and admire. What you see here is a LC500 with a wide body kit, massive wing to keep you glued to the track, custom paint job, and the exhaust vent seems to be have redirected to the middle of the body.

The Lexus LC500 may come out early 2017 and if it does indeed come out in the first quarter of that year, Lexustuned could get their hands on one and suit it up similar to the rendering before the 2017 SEMA show which usually takes place in November.

Not my style. There's too many extra performance parts that just takes away from the great lines that the LC500 originally comes with. Great paint concept since they seems to be lexustuned's signature swirl but that's pretty much it.

Considering Lexus brought a number of RC vehicles to SEMA, I think we can bet that they will be bringing the LC500 next time.

Although its just a rendering, I think it could have been better done, tastefully done, not all choppy like that.

Having seen the RC-F GT3, i'm sure lexus will get it right, after all look how amazing the LC is as we currently know it.

What do you think is so choppy about it? It doesn't look lifelike, but it doesn't look like it was spliced together to me. It looks whole.

Proportions aren't right, seems too wide and not long enough. Didn't have to go that wide. and the spoiler is too big. It's all just not right.

Personally, wouldn't buy it or modify one to look like that, But I do like the way it looks. Looks functional, Race ready. The only thing that really sets me off a bit is the spoiler, could have been designed a bit better imo.

I wouldn't mind spending the kind of money required to achieve that, just I rather spend it on something much cleaner looking, like what Wald International can do, that's if they'll even touch the LC.

Hmm I can't see why Wald wouldn't want to get their hands on one of these.

I don't see why not either, it's quite a 'natural' move for them especially with the LC being a big deal and slotting in a segment that gets a decent volume of tuners, just as long as the product is right... which the LC is already.

In the past they came out with kits for the Lexus SC430, low volume uninteresting vehicle, but they justified the move.
