This is the LC, Lexus' entry into the 2-door luxury grand touring segment. Traces of the limited run LFA can be seen in the LC's profile and dashboard styling. Unlike the LFA which was a more extreme all-out supercar, the new LC has a softer more elegant design and being a GT sports coupe and convertible, it offers comfort and luxury features one would expect from the brand.
Under the hood of the LC500 is a naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter Dual-VVTi V8 which pumps out 470hp and 540Nm of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 10-speed automatic transmission. It can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in only 4.7 seconds and has a top speed of 270km/h.
