To describe the all-new Lexus LC500 as anything short of a masterpiece would be a sizeable disservice to the vehicle. This car is simply stunning, both in terms of looks and underneath the hood.

Speaking of what’s underneath, we're thankful that Lexus brought in the burlier of the two variants--the one with a 5.0-liter V8 capable of 478hp and 540Nm. What's more, it goes from 0-100kph in 4.7 seconds and is the first car in its segment to have shifting duties handled by a 10-speed automatic transmission. Sweet.

Other things to note? Carbon fiber roof, beautiful 21-inch alloy wheels, and an all-new rear-wheel-drive platform. As Paulo Subido, who drove the vehicle in Spain, puts it: "It's about having the sharpness of a performance car with the refinement expected of Lexus."
