Lexus is preparing for a world premiere next week in Detroit Motor Show and to keep everyone on its toes, they released this very short clip.
The audio is just six seconds long and features what sounds like an angry V8 waking up, so this new model might not be another hybrid crossover. Reports are suggesting that Lexus is going to unveil the production version of the LF-LC concept under the name LC 500.
The new model is expected to borrow the naturally aspirated 470hp 5.0-litre V8 engine from the RC F and GS F which sounds just like the engine on the clip, so we’ll bet our money on that option.
The production LF-LC will rival models like the BMW 6-Series and the Mercedes SL-Class when it reaches the market.
Lexus will reveal the mystery model in Detroit on Monday, 11 January.
