In today’s world, large & sleek performance coupes aren’t the staple of the market. Even though the demand is still out there, manufacturers have put more effort and note on creating high-performance crossovers (sigh!) and SUVs (not that big of a sigh, but still). However, companies like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Lexus, all put out viable high-performance Grand Tourers that look incredible, but also, bring a whole lot of performance to the table. And when Lexus comes into play, their entry the Lexus LC500 is one of the best-looking Grand Tourers we’ve seen to date. It’s simply breathtaking.
The Lexus LC500 comes with an all-new vehicle development platform. It is equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 engine, delivering 471 horsepower and 539Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. It utilizes a class-leading 10-speed automatic transmission, allowing for some quick shifts and not that appalling fuel consumption numbers. It can also accelerate the LC500 from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in just 4.4 or 4.6 seconds, for the coupe and convertible, respectively.
Sure, it may be slower than the likes of the BMW M8 which does it in 3.2 seconds, or the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG coupe, which does it in 3.0 seconds flat, but it’s still a quick and powerful car, perfectly balanced for various daily driving and performance driving situations.
This particular Infrared Lexus LC500 comes from AG Luxury Wheels. It comes with a set of AG SR10 wheels, machined in sizes of 22×10 in the front and 22×11 in the rear. The wheels are finished in a striking Brushed Grigio and Polished Aluminum finish, offering a great-looking deep-dish, step-lip wheel combination that elevates this Lexus even higher. Furthermore, the red AG logo matches the red theme of the vehicle nicely, adding that perfect finishing touch. Add the air ride, and this LC500 looks almost perfect in every way!
