Lexus hopes to pump a little high-powered adrenaline and glamour into its lineup with the LC 500, which was recently unveiled at the North American International Auto Show. The sport coupe, with four seats, is expected to be priced at around $100,000. It is powered by a 5.0-liter, V-8 engine borrowed from the high-performance GS F sedan and RC F coupe that generates 467 hp and 389 pounds-feet of torque.


It was meticulously crafted with a variety of materials that enhance structural rigidity-including high-strength steel, lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum-the LC also embraces the art of performance with an all-new 10 speed Sport Direct-Shift transmission and a new advanced multilink suspension with razor’s-edge precision.


Every aspect of the LC is crafted to forge an unprecedented connection between the driver and the drive. The LC features a low center of gravity engineered to enhance driving dynamics, along with low-set, deeply contoured seats and an ergonomically advanced steering wheel with magnesium paddle shifters.


This car is sure to evoke an emotional new driving experience and introduce the next expression of Lexus performance.
