The All-new 2018 Lexus LC 500 And Its Historic Debut
Of all qualities that an average car shopper is looking for a vehicle, it is just but undeniable that it's mostly quality, reliability, fuel efficiency, safety, and convenience features. However, although these are all very important qualities, the physical appearance would probably be another factor that most consumers aren't as quick to freely mention, which is why the 2018 Lexus LC 500 is such a brilliant move by Lexus. Being just a concept car, it was initially never meant to see production; until it has gained a universal positive reaction from consumers as the company has successfully transformed the LC 500 from a styling statement into a full-fledged production model.
The 2018 Lexus LC 500
According to Behind The Wheel, the new Lexus LC is priced from $92,000 in the U.S. Which would also be made available this week. That said, it was also found that while the hybrid version of the performance coupe starts $4,500 USD above the V8-powered model, the 2018 Lexus LC 500 is also a road focussed sports coupe, wherein owners would also have the chance to choose between 351kW/540Nm 5.0 liter V8 or 220kW/348Nm 3.5-liter V6 hybrid. Apart from that, Lexus said that the vehicle has a 21" alloy wheels which is capable of generating a 10-speed automatic transmission standard with V8 engine.
In one of his statements reported by Forbes, Lexus' General Manager of Product and Consumer Marketing, Brian Bolain has claimed that the company is absolutely changing with the introduction of an all-new platform which will also completely change the way Lexus vehicles feel and ensure that Lexus drivers of the future are more connected than they've ever been before. In addition, the LC 500 is also considerably making an excellent showcase for Lexus' all-new front-engine, a rear-drive platform that will underpin the new LS sedan and other high-end models. Company executives have also revealed that they plan to sell just 400 LC 500s a month, or less than 2 a month for each U.S. dealer.
Significance Of The Features
When it comes to it's all new features, Lexus did not just put it there for the sake of design and to be called "New Lexus LC 500". That same spindle shape appears on the LC 500's rear end, flanked by taillights with an internal reflector that creates a concept-car-like glow and depth. Ultimately, experts say that this impression comes from a creative use of proportions along its flanks, giving the LC 500 visual poise and power despite a nearly identical front and rear wheel track.
