The Lexus LC
The LC-LF Concept received rave reviews for being forward-thinking while taking what Lexus learned about the LFA and putting it into a more attainable scale.
When a concept debuts, there is always the hope that it will become a reality. In this case, the LC-LF Concept became a production vehicle without compromising one inch of it.
That concept is now the Lexus LC Coupe.
The LC is a thoroughly modern interpretation of the classic grand touring coupes from our past. It was designed and engineered from the onset to offer superb performance, adaptive dynamics, and a driver-focused cabin. The result is a 2+2 grand touring coupe designed with the discriminating enthusiast in mind.
From Concept to Production, Without Compromise
The grand tourer’s long hood design starts with Lexus’ signature spindle grille. This is luxuriously crafted onto a low and sleek body that stands above any coupe in its class. The LC embodies a taut design that incorporates two full doors with hidden outside latches for inside access; a trunk big enough for luggage; condensed, three-bulb, daytime/nighttime LED lighting units; and a stance that is ready for action anytime.
Step inside a cabin made for four people. Seats range from sport seating with perforated leather to supple aniline leather. The dashboard is crafted with accents coordinated with the color of the upholstery. In addition, several trims – including wood and carbon fiber trims – are available in the LC.
The driver has an F Performance-inspired TFT instrument cluster that is designed to quicken the pulse by looking at it. An available touchpad-controlled screen is a hub for audio functions, a navigation system, and connection to Lexus Enform for directions and the use of smartphone apps – all projected on a 12.3-inch widescreen.
Choose Your Power Wisely
You have a choice between two LCs. The LC 500 is powered by 5.0-liter, naturally aspirated V8. With 471 horsepower, it offers no compromise concerning performance. The LC 500 is timed at 4.4 seconds from 0-60MPH with a top speed of 168MPH. Channeling this power is a new ten-speed Sport Direct-Shift transmission, designed to work this power through the torque curve.
The LC is also available in a hybrid version – the LC 500h. It starts with a 3.5-liter Atkinson-Cycle V6 connected to the new Lexus Multistage Hybrid system. The system has two electric motors connected to a 10-speed automatic transmission in a series with an electronic continuously variable transmission – a parallel system designed explicitly for hybrid drivelines. In all, the system puts out 354 total system horsepower, while achieving a 0-60 MPG time of 4.7 seconds.
The Driving Experience
To enhance your driving experience, a drive mode selector knob can switch the LC from Eco to Sport, depending which on the kind of driving is preferred. This is available in the Sport S+ setting, where engine, transmission, steering and suspension dampening are dialed in for a canyon-carving driving experience.
A Lexus is built to be safe, with active safety features designed to keep everyone in the vehicle safe. Features include a Pre-Collision System with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, lane departure alert, a backup camera, Intuitive Parking Assist, blind spot monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Smart Stop Technology.
To further enhance these technologies, Lexus Enform Safety Connect is available to connect with Lexus if an issue arises with the LC. Enform can also be monitored through a smartphone with its own app.
Make Your Choice
Pricing for the LC lineup starts at $92,200 for the LC 500, $96,710 for the LC 500h. Comprehensive packages are available with a level of equipment to turn an LC into an individual’s delight.
