Performance

Pure Adrenaline
Pure Lexus

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.

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 aerodynamic body and low profile tires, everything serves to ensure that every drive is nothing short of amazing.

Performance by Design

Weight distribution

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.

Functional Venting

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.

Multi-link Suspension

Double ball joints on the upper and lower control arms allow for control of the smallest movements from both driver inputs and road conditions.

10-Speed Transmission

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.

LC 500h features ‘M’ Mode that allows you to initiate direct gear shifts for the sharpest and most responsive drive yet from a Lexus hybrid.

Self-Charging 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.

Design

Dynamic Exterior

With a long 2,870 mm wheelbase, compact 920 mm front and 970 mm rear overhangs and a notably low hood, LC’s athletic profile is set off by a sweeping roofline, sensual curves, and wind-cutting silhouette. And set further apart by three striking new colours: Liquid Platinum, Flare Yellow, and Nori Green Pearl.

Wheel Arches

Wheel Arches

Muscular wheel arches emphasize LC’s imposing stance. Large 20” or 21” wheels are pushed to the corners to reduce overhang and increase control.

LED Lights

LED Lights

LC’s unique lighting signature makes an impression coming and going, including multi-layered LED rear tail lamps that light sequentially to create a unique 3-dimensional L motif.

Luxurious Interior

LC’s cabin is designed for driving pleasure and luxurious comfort. The cockpit is an invitation to high-spirited driving. Passengers relax in an environment that combines elegance and sophistication – including hand-stitched leather or Alcantara upholstery. Just one of many reflections of the Takumi craftsmanship for which Lexus is globally renowned.

Sport Seats

Available sport seats feature an integrated foam construction that literally conforms to your physique for exceptional holding performance and comfort. Specially engineered side bolsters provide the perfect amount of bracing during high-G maneuvers.

Switches, Controls and Gauge Placement

Switches and controls are at your fingertips, while Information displays are arranged to reduce eye movement and keep your focus on the road ahead.

Inspiration Edition 5

The new Inspiration Edition 5 elevates LC’s extraordinary design with exclusive touches, including a striking Obsidian or Ultra White exterior and black interior with saddle tan stitching, exquisitely complemented by Alcantara-wrapped seats, trim, and steering wheel. As soul-stirring to look at as it is to drive courtesy of a series of performance enhancements, including carbon fibre roof and wing, active rear sport differential, rear performance damper, and 21” dark forged aluminum alloy wheels. Available exclusively on the LC 500.
