Lexus LC 500 is Making First Debut Soon — Right before the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed event in the UK, Lexus LC 500 has been officially announced by the automaker, and it is making its first debut during the event. This premium coupe was built based on LF-LC concept, and it is reported to offer great things inside and out. Here is the news.
Lexus LC 500 Specifications
This Lexus LC 500 coupe is offered with two engines as an option for buyers. The first one will be Lexus’s F performance naturally aspirated V8 5.0 liter engine that generates around 467 bhp of power output with 527 lb-ft of torque performance. This engine is paired with ten speed of single clutch manual transmission.
The second one will be 500h hybrid powertrain that features V6 3.5 liter of petrol engine and electric motor. This combination can generate around 354 hp. The second engine is paired with four-speed automatic transmission. Along with improved traction control system and six pistons brakes, this car is estimated to reach 62 mph within 4.5 seconds. Even though it is not the best performance in its class, it is significant enough for a serious rivalry.
Exterior and Interior
The original Lexus LC500 concept is pretty dramatic, and this production level is toned down a bit. The coupe receives brand’s signature angular grille at the front end, and sharp designs and shapes throughout the body. With one of the world’s thinnest projectors, its LED lights are in better shape.
Instead of relying only on the diffuser and active rear spoiler, this Lexus LC 500 car gets redesigned angles on the outside to improve the aerodynamic efficiency as well as engine cooling.
