After BMW recently debuted their BMW M4 coupe, it only seems fitting that their Japanese rival would release its class contending model. Equipped with a 5.0 liter V8 engine, the exact power output is still unknown at this point, but there are some things we do know. A 8-speed paddle shift automatic transmission sends roughly 500 horsepower (some early reports say 460 hp) to the wheels, which should provide an impressive 0-60 mph time.

Lexus LF-LC Hybrid Concept


Lexus has unveiled an updated version of its Lexus LF-LC hybrid concept. The biggest change to the design is the new Opal Blue exterior color – according to Lexus, the new shade is inspired by the lustrous color found in semi-precious opal stones in the Australian Outback. The hybrid concept system named Advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive, features an Atkinson cycle engine which is mated to an advanced high-energy battery pack that is designed to deliver greater power from a smaller battery than those currently used in Lexus’ range of hybrid vehicles. Combined, the LF-LC Blue concept’s hybrid powertrain packs 500 horsepower, which is more than any other Lexus hybrid. LF-LC Blue is a preview of what the future may hold for sports cars.
