Toyota's luxury car division Lexus debuts a fully customized LC 500 at the 2016 North American Internal Auto Show. The car has been said to be wildly styled by Toyota's CEO Akio Toyoda.

A wildly styled 2018 model of the Lexus LC 500 is the latest introduction of Toyota's chief executive officer Akio Toyoda to the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. He claims that since a few years have passed, Lexus has aimed in every way to be exhilarating from exterior styling and interior designs up to the car's engine and how it drives and handles.

Akio, also known as the Lexus Master Driver, reveals the 2018 Lexus LC 500 at an enormous stage in comparison to other car concept debuts as an image-building two-door vehicle that could draw in buyers to the brand emotionally more than just a spindle grille controversy over the past few years. The company is proud of the LC 500, and the days of quiet Lexus cars are over as the concept car demonstrates the awesomeness of a powerful V8 engine sound.

There is more of LC 500 than just the concept car styling. The car is powered 5.0-liter V8 engine that outputs 468 horsepower accompanied by 391 pound-foot of torque. The car drives using its rear wheels accompanied by a 10-speed automatic transmission unlike any other Lexus cars as it is all crispy and demonstrates a little shift shock on gear changes that increases the car's description of speed and sportiness. Lexus LC 500 can hit from zero to 60 miles per hour in a little over 4 seconds.

Toyoda notes that he may have a slight accent when speaking in English like Columbian-born actress Sofia Margarita Vergara but the language he does speak is all about cars. Lexus enthusiasts cannot wait to have their hands on the concept car's steering wheel as the car will be in production in early 2017 and will be hitting the automotive industry in late 2017.
