The First-Ever 2018 Lexus LC
Experience A New World of Performance
Presenting the first-ever Lexus LC 500 and LC 500h; Powerful in performance, daring in conception, and faithful to the character of the LF-LC Concept that sparked it. Lexus LC is a new phase of amazing, and the next step in Lexus’ design and performance revolution. The LC 500 represents much more than a cutting-edge, high-performance coupe. It is a powerful expression of everything that is possible when you combine a utopian dream with a unique philosophy and an unforgiving standard. That’s why the LC 500 epitomizes everything Lexus stands for. It reflects our past but, most importantly, it will define our future.
2018 Lexus LC Design
The battle between beautiful form and spectacular function is a never-ending struggle. The LC 500 is a shining example of a luxury performance coupe that achieves both. Its distinctive low stance is a direct result of the need to lower the centre of gravity to reduce body-roll in corners. An ingenious use of alloy and carbon fibre means the breathtaking body shape also achieves a nearperfect 50-50 weight distribution necessary for optimal cornering. Unique forged 20" aluminum wheels wear tires made specifically for the LC 500 because standard wheels would compromise either aesthetic or capability. Guided by our L-Finesse design philosophy, triple-layered headlight and tail light configurations provide superior illumination with definitive Lexus style.
2018 Lexus LC Performance
The LC 500 evokes a driving experience so visceral it's almost beyond words. Engineered to awe, the LC 500 is powered by a 471 hp naturally-aspirated, all-aluminum, 5.0-litre V8 engine mated to the first-ever 10-speed, direct-shift automatic transmission capable of accelerating to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds flat. The LC 500h doesn't fall short of its V8 powered sibiling. Powered by a 3.5-litre V6 engine with total system output of 354 hp, the LC500h is capable accelerating to 100 km/h in under five seconds. From a standing start the electric motor instantly provides an abundance of torque and acceleration then seamlessly switches to the naturally-aspirated engine when more horsepower is commanded. Hybrid or gasoline, prepare to be electrified.
