'DELICATE, FUN AND FAST'
The LC Marks the beginning of a new phase for Lexus. Engineering expertise and expressive design unite in this flagship luxury coupe, setting new standards for performance, styling and craftsmanship.
Based on an entirely new rear-wheel drive layout and precisely engineered to deliver superior handling, The LC offers a driving experience like no other .
Taking hybrid performance to the next level - and demonstrating our lead in this technology - the new LC 500h luxury coupe is powered by the world’s first Multi Stage Hybrid.
Combining the power of a V6 engine with that of an advanced electric motor, the drivetrain amplifies output through a 4-speed transmission, delivering an incredibly direct 10-speed driving experience. Capable of accelerating from zero to 60 mph in just five seconds, the system’s immense torque makes this the first Lexus hybrid capable of spinning its driving wheels.
Yet despite this exhilarating performance, the LC 500h also delivers the fuel efficiency and low emissions that you’d associate with a Lexus hybrid.
The LC has the stiffest chassis of any Lexus car, setting a world-class benchmark, which will serve as the blueprint for future models. This results in sharper and more precise handling for a smoother performance. We’ve used the same carbon-fibre composite technology we developed for the LFA, shown in the compression-moulded sheets of Pre-impregnated carbon fibre in the LC’s inner door panels.
'THE LFA PROVED THERE WAS A MAD STREAK BURIED DEEP IN THE COMPANY. LC PROVES IT WASN’T A FLASH IN THE PAN'
