Since it made its global debut at the 2016 NAIAS (North American International Auto Show), the LC has been in great demand with customers placing early orders for the model. In Japan, shortly after it was officially launched, the number of orders received was equivalent to 3 years sales projections.
Daring in conception, powerful in performance, and true to the spirit of the LF-LC Concept that inspired it, the Lexus LC is the forerunner in Lexus’ design and performance revolution. The flagship coupe of the brand is powered by a 5.0-liter, 470 hp V8 engine.
At first glance, it becomes apparent that the engineering and design team’s collaboration was highly successful, considering how much of the LF-LC’s design ideology the team was able to transfer into the new LC 500. The LC 500 shares many of the key design elements, proportions and visual dynamism of the LF-LC.
The LC 500’s visual appeal is defined by an athletic aerodynamic shape. It features sensual curves, emotional forms, an available flowing carbon-fiber roof (glass roof standard), helping create a low, wide imposing stance that comes together for a highly functional, passionate package.
Inside, the LC 500 is influenced by the dynamic luxury theme of the exterior with a layout that is both cockpit-focused and elegant. The coupe’s driving position was calibrated to invite spirited, sporting driving, and help develop easier confidence with a more intuitive control layout.
The LC is manufactured at the Motomachi factory in Japan which is the same plant that produced the LFA supercar in 2011 and 2013.
Customers who wish to be among the first to own the new Lexus LC can now place their booking at all Lexus branches and authorized Lexus dealers nationwide.
The new Lexus LC 500 comes with a pre-release price of RM 940,000. The new LC imported by Lexus Malaysia comes with a comprehensive warranty of 5 years with unlimited mileage. New owners will also enjoy complimentary scheduled servicing at authorized Lexus service centers for the first 5 years. Complete after sales support is available at seven locations where there are professional technicians who have been extensively trained by Lexus.
