The most powerful V8
For the most empowered driver
The all-new platform of the Lexus LC 500 with a near-perfect weight balance means never having to sacrifice power for control. One of the world’s most powerful naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engines, 471 horsepower, a 7,300- rpm redline, a blistering 4.4-second 0-to-60 time, and the all-new 10-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission with magnesium paddle shifters, go to show that the LC 500 has groundhugging luxury coupe elegance and hair-raising exhilaration down to a science. Add four air intakes and rear wheels that have openings to help reduce lift and drag, and even the air contributes to the unparalleled high-speed handling and adrenaline-charged driving experience
A shift in the natural oder
The first-ever Lexus LC 500 Hybrid
The LC 500h is built on an advanced Lexus Multistage Hybrid powertrain—a 3.5-liter, 24-valve Atkinson-cycle V6. The result is the visceral feel of a high-performance coupe and power off the line that rivals its V8 competition. With a multistage transmission and speeds of 0 to 60 in 4.7 seconds, the LC 500h delivers the instant torque and response to put the entire category on notice. These Lexus-first innovations come together to create the direct, instinctive feel of a 10-speed transmission and a new expression of hybrid performance—354 total system horsepower. It’s a difference felt in seconds the moment the pedal is pressed.
