Lexus’s Flagship Coupe

The global debut of the 2017 Lexus LC 500 heralds the beginning of a new era for the luxury automaker. The concept is an embodiment of styling, performance, and craftsmanship rolled into one. LC 500 utilizes the brand’s new architecture that promises enhanced dynamic capability and performance symbolic of an evolving vehicle development culture that embraces heightened collaboration between the design and engineering teams ultimately leading to innovation.

The look and feel of the automobile is provocative and sporty and is by far the strongest made by Lexus thus far. The luxury coupe’s proportions, stunning design and performance are bound to enhance Lexus’s luxury appeal globally. LC 500 is visually dynamic defined by an athletic aerodynamic shape, with sensual curves, flowing carbon-fiber roof, creating a low, wide imposing stance.

At the heart of the LC 500 is the high-revving 5.0-liter V8 that is found in the RC F and GS F. The naturally aspirated V8 was selected for its smooth, linear throttle response and emotional engine sound. The all-aluminum, 32-valve V8’s output targets 467 HP and 389 lb.-ft. of torque. The new engine is built for durability with lightweight, high-strength forged connecting rods and titanium valves that allow the engine to flourish at high rpm.

All of the platform and drivetrain engineering helped endow the LC 500 with performance and agility uncommon for a four-person coupe; the vehicle targets a 0 to 60 mph time of less than 4.5 seconds. Packed with high-tech features and interiors to match the exterior appeal of the car – the FC 500 is bound to be the flagship coupe from Lexus.
