Lexus LC to participate in the 24 Hours Nürburgring
Visitors to the Tokyo Auto Salon 2018 could see Lexus LC, a racing coupe created by Toyota Gazoo Racing especially for the 46th 24 Hours Nürburgring endurance race held on May 12th this year.
This will be the 13th time Toyota Gazoo Racing enters the race with various Toyota and Lexus modifications. However, the current contender is a bit of a dark horse. To be precise, all we know about it right now is that it gets the all-new “2UR-GSE 5.0 V8” engine whose performance has been improved to racing-grade – no exact numbers being revealed.
Toyota claims that participating in endurance races allows the manufacturer to test a number of experimental developments which could later make their way into mass production market.
