    Official: Lexus to race LF-CC in Japanese Super GT

    Filed under: Concept Cars, Motorsports, Coupe, Lexus, Racing


    Dealers have long forgotten the discontinued Lexus SC, but the automaker still uses this car as the basis for its entrant in the Japanese Super GT racing series. Beginning with the 2014 season, Lexus will start running a new coupe based on the 2012 LF-CC concept car in the GT500 class, which limits cars to a maximum of 500 horsepower. The 2014 season will feature 10 races, and it starts on the weekend of April 5, 2014.

    While there's not much info to go on here, Lexus says that testing of the new car will begin today at the Suzuka Circuit. The good news for us is that if you toss out the crazy aero front end, the wide fender extensions and the massive wing, what we're essentially looking at is the production version of the concept, which will be called the Lexus RC.
