We've been hearing rumors about a production version of the Lexus LF-LC concept for years but it appears Matt Farah has snapped the first pictures of a road-going prototype.

Dressed in swirly black and white camouflage, the coupe appears to retain similar proportions to the well-received concept as well as uniquely shaped boomerang taillights.  The car also has a rakish windscreen, a sporty roof and dual exhaust system.

We haven't heard much about the model lately but previous reports have suggested the car will be based on the next-generation LS and be offered with a high-output 5.0-liter V8 as well as a hybrid engine that produces approximately 500 bhp (372 kW).  More interestingly, there have been rumors about a range-topping F variant with a twin-turbo V8 that develops more than 600 bhp (447 kW).
