It was the ongoing eight-hour LAN outage today that spurred a moment of creativity in photoshop. With whom?
Our new favorite subject: the 2017 Lexus LC500!
After many hours and nearly 150 shades of future super-Lexus… we are thrilled by the idea of a possible BMW collaboration under these delicious panels. The cabio also seems only a snip and slice away! The floating roof and minimal pillars all around the back glass of the LC500 make clear this machine was designed. HARD!
The tumblehome — or that area between the edges of the fenders and the glasshouse — is deeper than ANYTHING ever out of Lexus’ F skunkworks. It promises outrageous performance…. with the rigid lightness of the BMW paired to the insane power of the new 5.0-liter V8 from the RCF!? Add in a bespoke new 10-speed automatic and custom LSD…….. and the color will be the least of your concerns!
Even so, we have two angles here in a variety of wild color renders. There are two quality levels shown here: the actuals and the drafts. The actuals are easily double the sharpness of the screencapped stages along the way. The drafts are in the multi-column gallery format.
Also particularly promising? The dramatic change of mood and face via a darker grille and/or cheek fangs. Or both! And dark wheels…? End product? Found an emerald green/black pack look that makes me weak in the knees! The car also looks terrific in every shade of blue.
