LC F spotted testing

There have been rumors floating about around a more powerful variant of the LC for months, but thanks to some spy photos, it looks like we finally have proof of it being tested. These pictures we're taken in Germany and showcase the high performance coupe with a new front bumper and large air intakes. It also looks like the front wheel arches have been extended, which could suggest a slightly wider track. From the rear there is a four tailpipe exhaust system with is similar to other F models we seen such as the RC F and GS F. Fingers crossed that there is a 600hp engine under the hood.

Glad to see that test mules are showing up already but I'm hearing that we might have to wait till 2020 to finally get out hands on one.
Often when car makers show test mules as production ready as this, it signals towards a release not far off.
Could we see it release late 2018 to early 2019?

Personally I don't think its something they need to rush to market, considering how new the LC500 is. They'll also probably have to look to current sales to determine where exactly they can realistically price this model. I'm assuming that it will retain a hybrid system of some kind, because the base model is already quite thirsty.

Looks like we might finally have a successor to the incredible LFA. And I doubt that anyone looking at the LC500 really cares about fuel economy. Lexus has already done what they could with the hybrid option.

LFA as a supercar, this is no more than a high performing GT car. Thankfully all we have to do is look at the new BMW M8 for a benchmark, its what Lexus has to base the LC-F around, or beat.
