The new Lexus LC 500 has no claims to be a red blooded sports coupe capable of rivaling the Germans in this segment. The Japanese did that with the RC F and regretted it. Still, a pre-production LC500 was spotted the other day at the Nurburgring, looking petty sprightly around those corners. Could it be that the LC is more than just a pretty face? Is it possible something that heavy could actually be nice to drive?
Well, that remains to be seen in the independent testing that will come later. For now let’s enjoy the look of Lexus LC 500 and have a listen to its not so shabby exhaust note:
“The LC 500 has been an important product for Lexus and me personally,” said Akio Toyoda, Chief Branding Officer and Master Driver for Lexus. “A few years ago, we decided to guide the future of the brand with products that had more passion and distinction in the luxury market. This flagship luxury coupe’s proportions, stunning design and performance make a strong statement about our brand’s emotional direction and will grow the Lexus luxury appeal globally.”Lexus LC 500 Sighted Testing at the ‘Ring,
