Thrill to the Edge of Control
The LC’s breath-taking blend of raw power, razor-sharp performance and ride smoothness positions you perfectly to hit every apex and enter straightaways with unlimited confidence. Available with a gas or hybrid powertrain. Both capable of taking you from 0 to exhilaration in under 5 seconds.
Performance By Design
Lexus designers and engineers worked in lock-step throughout development to ensure that every component works together to take full advantage of LC’s inspired performance capabilities. From the rear wheel drive platform to the available 471 HP gas engine and 10-speed automatic transmission to the wind-cheating chassis and low profile tires, everything serves to ensure that every drive is nothing short of amazing.
LC’s dynamic performance starts with its premium rear wheel drive platform. The ultra-low centre of gravity and near perfect front-to-rear weight distribution set the stage for a significantly sharper, yet exceptionally refined driving experience.
Carbon Fibre, Aluminum, High-Tensile Steel - Enhanced for Structural Rigidity
LC's chassis is a fusion of lightweight yet high-strength materials – including extensive use of super high tensile steel and carbon fibre with the strength of steel. The result is the stiffest unibody Lexus has ever produced. And a vehicle that responds swiftly and surely to your every command and every twist in the road.
LC Inspiration Series
New for 2019, the LC Inspiration Series fuses a series of striking accents with heart pumping performance. Advanced features including carbon fibre roof, variable gear ratio steering, limited slip differential and 4-wheel steering combine to make LC Inspiration Series lighter, quicker, and more responsive. 21” forged wheels put power to the ground, while 10-way power adjustable driver seat holds you in personalized comfort. All finished in exclusive Naples Yellow on the outside, and cool grey seats with yellow door panels, and black and yellow stitching on the steering wheel and centre console on the inside.
Wheel arch vents enhance aerodynamics and cooling performance - and include aerofins upfront, inspired by F1 technology.
Active Rear Spoiler
The available active rear spoiler enhances airflow management during high-speed performance.
Double ball joints on the upper and lower control arms allow for control of the smallest movements from both driver inputs and road conditions.
LC 500’s 10-speed automatic - the first ever in a luxury automobile - delivers shift times rivalling those of a double-clutch transmission. On the LC 500h, a special “M” Mode enables direct gear shifts for the most responsive drive yet from a Lexus hybrid.
It’s our fastest and most powerful self-charging hybrid ever. LC’s multi-stage hybrid powertrain combines a 3.5-litre Atkinson-cycle V6, advanced electric motors, and an automatic transmission in series with an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission. The result is instantaneous torque, 354 HP, and the direct driving feel of a 10-speed transmission. Most powerful of all, it’s self-charging, and never needs to be plugged in.
