According to a recent report, Lexus is developing a high-end model named the LC 600h.

Designed to be the successor to the SC 430, the luxury-oriented sports car - available as a coupe and convertible - will ride on a shortened version of the next-generation LS platform. It will be powered by a hybridized 5.0-liter V8 engine which will produce upwards of 500 hp (373 kW / 507 PS). This should enable the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than five seconds.

Scheduled for launch in 2015, the LC aims to be a legitimate competitor to the Mercedes SL-Class.
