The incredible new Lexus LC will be arriving at Lexus Teesside in Spring 2017.
This new luxury sports coupé has an athletic and aerodynamic silhouette boasting sensual curves and standard 20-inch alloy wheels.This beautiful feat of engineering is the perfect marriage of performance and design, placing it firmly among the most desirable in the luxury segment. It promises to be as exciting to drive as it is stunning to look at, with a weight-balanced rear wheel-drive setup and the LC500’s sculpted bonnet hosting a ferocious 5.0-litre V8 generating 467bhp.
Stunning concept-like looks
It carries over a number of key design elements from the original concept to make an instant impression on the road. The aerodynamic roof and flowing curves are two examples, while the front end features Lexus’ signature ‘spindle’ grille. Jagged headlamps with hook-like daytime running lights add to the car’s aggression, and the angular rear section is quite unforgettable.
There will also be version using a next-generation Multi-Stage Hybrid System. Dubbed the LC500h, this blends a 3.5-litre V6 engine with a powerful electric motor and lightweight lithium-ion battery. The resulting drivetrain is rated at 354bhp, catapulting the LC towards the horizon and reaching 60mph in less than five seconds – while being unexpectedly kind to the environment.
Lexus has also innovated in the LC’s transmissions, developing a new 10-speed automatic – the first ever in a luxury car – for the LC500, with gearshift times rivaling dual-clutch equivalents.
The cabin promises to be a sumptuous place to spend time, with the seats placed as low and as centrally as possible to lower the centre of gravity and improve the driving dynamics. Details from the lauded LF-A hypercar are faithfully replicated, and the cabin is flooded with light courtesy of the standard glass roof.
