Lexus LC Shooting Brake Rendered As Tribute To Ferrari Daytona SB

The only station wagon ever produced by Lexus was the first generation IS, which was available in a long-roof version in some markets. It seems that the future could hold electric wagons from the Japanese firm, as a recent teaser image suggested, and we are already excited about thеse new products. One thing we know Lexus won’t launch for sure, however, is a shooting brake version of the LC.

This may seem just like a weird and not very creative idea, but the designer says his rendering is actually inspired by the Ferrari Dayton shooting brake. For the uninitiated, the 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona was commissioned by someone who wanted to add more practicality to the supercar and retain its performance coming from a 4.4-liter V12 engine. And it’s currently super expensive.

If you’ve ever seen the car in question – photos of it can be seen here – you’ll instantly recognize its shape in this Lexus rendering. The rear fascia has a similar basic form, highlighted by the LED strip running from coast to coast. It’s really difficult to describe the design as it flows into unusual, smooth, and rounded lines. We wonder if the glass cover opens up in the same way as the Ferrari Daytona shooting brake.
