2017 Lexus SC

When Lexus LF-LC concept car was presented on 2012 Detroit Auto Show, it made a huge impact both on crowd and critics. Everyone was absolutely delighted with this car and started impatiently to wait its serial production. However, it didn’t happen in next two years and many of us thought that it will end only on concept. Fortunately, it seems that production of this concept will be materialized through new 2017 Lexus SC, which will come as third-generation model after six or seven years of brake. This model was discontinued in 2010 so expect comeback in great style.

2017 Lexus SC specs

Like its predecessors, 2017 Lexus SC will be a grand tourer. According to the reports, it will be heavily influenced by LF-LC concept, which means that it will get new lightweight platform. The most of the car’s body will be made of extra lightweight materials such as aluminum and carbon fiber, so 2017 SC will definitely have excellent performances, probably even better than RC-F Coupe. When it is about cars look, it will definitely keep aggressive, aerodynamic and muscular appearance of LF-LC, but it will implement some newer solutions from models such as RC-F and it will also feature many unique details. Headlights and taillights will be slightly modified (in RC-style), while the same spindle grille will remain on 2017 SC.
