Born from human-centered craftsmanship and limitless imagination, the Lexus LC represents the most passionate expression of the Lexus brand.
Lexus designers paid close attention to detail when creating every part of the LC. Starting with the inside, the bolstered, high-back sport seats are the result of two years and 50 prototypes created to find the ideal driving posture. The result is a connection to the road like never before.
Since the human hand isn’t perfectly flat, the Lexus LC features a steering wheel that is tailored to all its contours. In addition, large magnesium paddle shifters with meticulously engineered “click” feedback and outboard placement contribute to an intuitive, track-inspired driving experience.
Outside, the attention to detail is just as apparent. The stunning taillamps were inspired by the dramatic glow of a jet’s afterburners. Designed to produce an infinite mirror effect, 80 LEDs on either side create even, dimensional illumination with impressive depth.
The motion of the flush exterior door handles was inspired by the welcoming gesture of having a door held open for you. The handles gracefully extend outward and inset LEDs illuminate. As the doors close, or after 15 seconds, the lighting fades.
Under the hood, power prevails. Thundering through the variable Active Sport Exhaust, the 5.0-liter, naturally aspirated V8 issues a full-throated engine note as a call to driving enthusiasts. The LC 500 has an output of 471 hp1 and 398 lb-ft of peak torque.1,2 The LC is also capable of delivering a 0-to-60 mph time of 4.4 seconds1 and up to an EPA-estimated 25 mpg on the highway.3
When it comes to hybrid performance, the Lexus LC 500h enables drivers to experience a profound shift. With the breakthrough Lexus Multistage Hybrid Drive—a multistage transmission that delivers instant torque—and the direct, instinctive feel of a 10-speed transmission, the LC 500h puts the entire category on notice.
The 2021 LC 500 is the ultimate luxury sport coupe, blending emotional design and high performance like few other cars on the road.
