Lexus has released a new video that gives us a better look at the electrified sport concept, which debuted late last year.
Designed to preview an electric sports car that “inherits the driving taste, or secret sauce, of…the LFA,” the concept is an aggressive luxury coupe with a long, vented hood with quick releases.
The car’s intentions are immediately apparent thanks to a sporty front end that is vaguely reminiscent of the LFA. It is joined by a T-shaped plug and a prominent splitter.

Designers also gave the concept a curvaceous body and a contrasting black double-bubble roof. Other notable highlights include minimalist mirrors, vented front fenders and lightweight wheels backed by a high-performance braking system with red calipers.
The rear looks a bit like a bug, but the concept includes distinctive taillights and a vented bumper. We can also see a black central insert with a vertical style element.
Lexus hasn’t said much about the car, but officials have previously suggested the production model will be able to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in the “low 2-second range.” “. They also noted that the coupe will have a range of over 435 miles (700 km) and could be equipped with solid-state batteries.
While a number of questions remain, the EV will have some big shoes to fill as the LFA is still celebrated nearly a decade after its production release. It’s not hard to see why, as the model featured a 4.8-liter V10 engine that screeched at 9,000 rpm while producing 553 hp (412 kW / 560 hp) and 354 lb-ft. (480 Nm) of torque.
