The new 2018 Lexus LC 500 offers drivers an opportunity to Experience prestige and luxury every time you get behind the wheel. This new coupe style vehicle is built with an all-new platform, with a 471 horsepower* and a class-leading 10-speed automatic transmission.
The all-new 10-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission delivers rapid-fire shift times with lightning-quick intelligence. This is a first in the luxury segment.
Every element of the front-engine, rear-wheel drive platform was built to elevate the driver’s connection to the road. This is where it gets scientific. The alignment of the driver’s hip point with the vehicle’s center of gravity is superior in its class. An ultra-low center of gravity helps to reduce unwanted body motion and create less rear squat during acceleration, less nosediving during braking and less body lean during turns. To help you maintain a preset following distance from the vehicle ahead, All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control* feature uses radar technology to sense the speed of vehicles directly in front of you. If you get too close to the vehicle ahead, it can automatically reduce your Lexus’ speed—even to a complete stop—at speeds of up to 24 mph. And, as soon as the road ahead clears, the vehicle returns to its preset speed.
The LC features Takumi Craftsmanship, with hand-stitched features, hand-selected materials and an extreme attention. It all comes together to create the most expressive Lexus ever built.
