2018 Lexus LC

Combining exciting design and exhilarating performance like never before, the all-new Lexus LC 500 and LC 500h luxury coupes give Canadians new reasons to fall in love with the adventure of the wide-open road.

 
The LC series - available in both conventional (LC 500) and hybrid (LC 500h) versions - is a flagship 2+2 luxury coupe that expresses a contemporary interpretation of the finest traditions of the grand touring model. The LC is focused on the road, with handling, responsiveness and comfort tuned on some of the world's greatest driving adventures to deliver a rewarding and hugely enjoyable experience.

Available with gas or hybrid powertrain.
The LC 500h is revolutionary, introducing an all-new Lexus Multi-Stage Hybrid powertrain that's been designed specifically for high-performance vehicles. Built around a 3.5L V6 and a state of the art Lithium-Ion hybrid battery, this hybrid system delivers 354 hp and impressive torque figures across a wider range of engine speeds. It's coupled to a continuously variable transmission mated to a four-speed automatic gearbox to closely align engine RPMs with throttle inputs. LC 500h drivers can manually select from 10 speed steps to deliver a surprisingly sharp connection between the accelerator pedal and vehicle response.
 
"Lexus guests have embraced our recent model introductions for their distinctive, contemporary designs and their rewarding engineering - and with the new LC series, we take the evolution of Lexus to a whole new level,"

  - Jennifer Barron, Director of Lexus Canada.
 

 
Seduction and Technology.
The LC features luxury coupe proportions with an exterior design that projects avant-garde elegance while remaining faithful to many of the defining features of the LF-LC that inspired it. The LC series is wrapped in a glamorous body that represents an evocative and fluid interpretation of the Lexus "seduction and technology" design theme. The profile is athletic, with a sweeping roofline and distinctive silhouette. Prominent front and rear spoilers flare away from the centre of the car, housing wide, large-diameter wheels. At the front, the signature Lexus spindle grille is flanked by unique, remarkably slim lighting clusters - while at the rear, the combination tail lamps emphasize the vehicle's wide and stable stance. Detailing is beautiful and aerodynamic, improving high-speed stability and ride quality while suppressing wind noise.



5.0L V8 Engine.
The LC 500 is powered by the latest iteration of the Lexus 5.0L V8 that graces both the Lexus RC F and GS F high performance models. High-revving and naturally aspirated, this 471 peak horsepower engine provides exhilarating acceleration for confident driving. This is coupled to a 10-speed direct-shift automatic transmission - the first in a luxury automobile - that delivers amazing shift times, heightening the emotional connection between driver and car. This 10-speed automatic features evenly-spaced gearing and is the industry's first to combine AI-SHIFT control with a drive-mode switching function, to select the optimum gear according to the vehicle's estimation of the driver's preferences and intentions based on vehicle speed, use of the accelerator, and past driving history.


Rear-Wheel-Drive Platform.
The LC series is the first Lexus to take advantage of an all-new, rear-wheel-drive platform. Known as GA-L, this platform features a low centre of gravity and centralized positioning of components, including the engine. The result is a dynamic driving experience unlike any previous Lexus.

Tremendous ride comfort.
New front and rear suspensions contribute to excellent vehicle response and sharp, agile steering feel, while imparting tremendous ride comfort and stability. Run-flat tires mean no on-board spare is necessary. This helps better balance the vehicle's weight and frees up space to help maintain the LC's swooping profile
