Lexus dumps RC F Super GT in favor of stunning LC 500 racer

Japan’s Wonderful GT series remains a favorite at the Autoblog company, because like British Touring Cars and Germany’s DTM, the cars look inexplicably like the ones you can actually buy, and the racing is sign and intense. And next year, Japan’s wildest racing intent include the Lexus LC 500.

Toyota and Gazoo Racing are phasing out the old RC F – which thinks continue racing here in the US GT3 ranks since it’s only just a year old – in favor of Lexus’ bigger, cushier two-door coupe. The racer depends on a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder – well-founde like every other car in the GT500 ranks – but distinguishable from the 5.0-liter V8 or a 3.5-liter half-breed V6 in the LC 500s folks could actually buy.

But let’s by the mechanicals, because look at this hideous racer. The LC is already the best looking car to drag Lexus’ polarizing design language, but the belligerent cuts, angles, and oddly shaped headlights look tremendous when paired with a Super GT car’s aerodynamic appendages. Barbarous, flared wheel arches, a mammoth rump wing, and side skirts big enough to attend to drinks on are just a few of the aero improvements for the LC 500 racer. Then, there’s the absolutely cool stuff, like the exhaust withdraw in the passenger side door. All cars should possess side-exit exhausts in the door.

According to Toyota and Gazoo’s Google Translated website, the new LC 500 Wonderful GT500 will campaign in the 2017 available. We can’t wait to see it hit the track.
