While there's not much info to go on here, Lexus says that testing of the new car will begin today at the Suzuka Circuit. The good news for us is that if you toss out the crazy aero front end, the wide fender extensions and the massive wing, what we're essentially looking at is the production version of the concept, which will be called the Lexus RC.

TOKYO – Aug. 16, 2013 – Lexus Racing announced a new race car based on the Lexus "LF-CC" that will compete in the Super GT Series GT500 class starting next season. The vehicle will replace the Lexus SC 430 currently used in Super GT races.
The Lexus LF-CC is a two-door coupe concept that debuted at the Paris Motor Show in September 2012. It features a dynamic exterior with an emphasis on aerodynamics and cooling performance.
Vehicle shakedown will begin at the Suzuka Circuit this afternoon.
