LEXUS ENHANCES FLAGSHIP LC COUPE AND CONVERTIBLE WITH IMPROVED SAFETY CONNECTIVITY
The LC 500 continues to be powered by the sonorous 5.0-litre V8 developing 351kW at 7100rpm and 540Nm at 4800 rpm, with new engine mounts helping to maintain smoothness.
Capable of revving up to a 7300rpm redline, the 2UR-GSE V8 engine drives the rear wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission for smooth and rapid acceleration.
Meanwhile, the LC 500h employs its fuel-saving 3.5-litre V6 hybrid arrangement, also driving the rear wheels via a continuously variable transmission for a combined peak output of 264kW.
The LC 500 Coupe is available with an optional Enhancement Pack, which adds dynamic rear steering and variable gear ratio steering, an active rear spoiler, carbon fiber roof, 10-way power adjustable front seats with Alcantara and leather-accented trim and carbon-fiber scuff plates.
The LC 500h Coupe was previously available with an optional Enhancement Pack, but going forward is offered as a single, highly-specified grade incorporating previously optional features as standard, including those from the LC 500 Enhancement Pack plus a Torsen®10 limited-slip differential and high-grade brake discs.
The LC 500h Coupe joins the LC 500 Convertible as being available only with a single high level of specification.
As part of the update, the new Sonic Copper and Cobalt Mica hues are added to the LC's colour palette, joining White Nova, Sonic Chrome, Sonic Iridium, Titanium, Graphite Black, Infrared, Zinnia Yellow and Khaki Metal. Carnelian and Deep Blue are discontinued.13
The artistically styled LC interior is available with new colour schemes for the leather-appointed upholstery, with Dark Rose replacing Flare Red. Manhattan Orange is discontinued.13
