Lexus LC500
A new flagship coupe for the Lexus brand, the LC 500 that debuted in Detroit retains many of the key design elements first seen when the LF-LC concept was reveled four years earlier in Detroit. The front of the car is dominated by a new version of the Lexus spindle grille with chrome on three sides and a new 3D mesh, flanked by a triple LED headlight unit with L-shaped daytime running lights below. The fast-sloping roofline includes a standard glass roof with an available carbon fiber roof. The slim multi-layer taillights create the appearance of a sequential L motif, while the rear diffuser and available active rear spoiler aid the aerodynamics. Standard wheels are 20-inch machined cast aluminum with 21-inch forged aluminum wheels optional. The LC 500 is powered by a naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine expected to produce 467 horsepower and 389 lb-ft of torque, delivered to the rear wheels via a newly developed 10-speed automatic transmission.
