The 2018 Lexus LC will have everyone stopping and staring – so if you like all eyes on you, this is the car for you.
While most Lexus vehicles are built on a similar chassis, the first model year for the Lexus LC was 2018, debuting an all-new Lexus platform that competes with other high performance sports cars. The result is a near-perfect weight distribution, a strikingly low center of gravity and instinctive handling.
We test drove the 2018 Lexus LC 500h, the hybrid version of this sexy sports car. The 500h has a V-6 engine and two electric motors to provide a combined output of 354 hp, making it a more gas efficient vehicle over the Lexus LC 500 that has a V-8 engine. Like most Lexus vehicles, you have the ability to choose the drive mode – eco, standard, sport and sport+. We indulged and kept the car on sport+ most of the time to get the most power possible.
The thing we loved most about the Lexus LC is simply how beautiful it is. Every where we went people stopped, stared and had to check it out. We even got comments from people while waiting at stoplights! People just can’t seem to take their eyes off the sleek and sexy design of the Lexus LC.
In addition to looking amazing, the Lexus LC is super fun to drive. We took this beauty on an 8 hour road trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico, so we got to really test out the speed and handling on the highway. It took the tight turns on the AZ-87 with ease. The handling performance of the Lexus LC is said to be equal to the Aston Martin DB11.
The 12-speaker Lexus Premium Sound System was also a fabulous feature. The sound quality inside this coupe matched the sexy look and feel of the car. It made listening to the new Kayne West album on the long drive even more enjoyable.
The Lexus LC 500h starts at $96,510. To learn more about the Lexus LC, visit lexus.com, or visit a local dealership:
