If you are a big fan of luxury sport cars and looking for something more than average than you must look and checkout the Lexus LC500 “a 100,000$ car”. Lexus come up with LC500 to rival the competitors including Porsche 911, BMW 6 series, Jaguar F Type and Mercedes SL and this will prove to be a great competitor to all of these.
Design Dynamics of Lexus LC 500:
This is really impressive vehicle that received incredible attention to its details.
Starting from the front it has beautiful trademark spindle grill, Led headlamps and day time running lights like all the other Lexus vehicles have but the thing that makes its front different is the way its day time running lights have designed, these give unique appearance to the car as these starts from the middle of the car next to the grille and end into actual lighting assembly, just not on the front but its rear brake lights are unique as well because red lines reflects over and over and creates unique pattern that I haven’t seen any other vehicle yet. Exterior is self explanatory but its interior is so full that require details for every single feature.
Everything featured in this vehicle is incredible for example when door locks there appear a green light that illuminates the lock logo on inside the door, its gauge is moveable that moves horizontally to display the cluster screen that you want to see (Cluster feature is also available in other 2018 years models of Lexus vehicles) and it has accurate variable buttons to increase the volume and changing the radio frequency. Talking about its interior quality than it is one of the best in business; Door panels from inside have qualitative and luxurious styling with alcantara ridges, Dashboard, steering wheel and center console have high quality leather stitched around and the thing that makes it different from other luxury vehicles is that there is no carbon fiber anywhere inside the car and still LC 500 weighs around 4300 pounds which makes it an ultra light weight vehicle.
Lexus LC 500 has new remote touch interface for infotainment screen that makes it easier to operate without distraction and this new interface is available in this model only, there were some negative reviews about old touch interface but this new one really works great. Everything inside it is nearly perfect and full fill all the requirements of ergonomics; it has 2 special grab handles for passenger wrapped with leather having aluminum inserts, one with door and other with center console. Another surprising thing is the climate control vents; on driver’s left there is available 1 vent, in the middle there available another one but for passenger there are available 3 vents and if we conclude this than this is more comfortable and luxurious for the passenger.
Engine & Power:
Lexus LC 500 is equipped with 5 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine that works using 10 speed automatic transmission and produces 471 horse power with 400 pound feet of torque, it accelerates 0-60 in 4.6 seconds and top speed of vehicle is 160 miles per hour. Hybrid version of Lexus LC 500 is also available that gives better fuel economy while with V8 it gives 16 miles per gallon in city and 26 miles per gallon on highway.
It is more luxurious than sporty but still gives great driving experience to the driver, it is very stable and fells no body rolls while cornering, transmission is great and feels no jerky or slow to respond.
Comfort & Safety:
Front seats of are car so much comfortable and sporty and also the best seats in the business, interior of the car is so quiet and because of smooth ride quality it becomes even more comfortable. It has sunroof but that didn’t open that is why it only provides light not the air, overall visibility from inside the vehicle is so good. This is truly a 2 people car because getting inside rear is much difficult for adults and there is not enough head and leg room either, except for small children’s.
There are no safety ratings available yet for Lexus LC 500 on both IIHS and NHTSA but as per details available on NHTSA there are 2 complaints and 1 recall recorded for Lexus LC 500.
This car is the most futuristic car in terms of technology and features; everything in the car has unique quality and works in a unique way. This car is as good as any and better than every single rival in its segment and absolutely worth the price.
