Deliveries of the new Lexus LC to European customers will start from August this year, including a special Launch Edition version.
Throughout the car’s development, Lexus made it a top priority to preserve the essence of the original LF-LC concept’s styling, delivering a flagship coupe that displays radical, brand-defining Lexus design.
What is under the skin is equally significant, the new LC being the first model to be built on the Lexus Global Architecture – Luxury platform, which endows the car with a low centre of gravity and optimum weight distribution. This contributes to superior handling agility and stability and the kind of rewarding drive customers expect from a prestige coupe.
Advanced powertrain technologies ensure efficient performance from both the full hybrid and V8-powered versions of the LC. The LC 500h is set to deliver benchmark fuel economy of 44.1mpg and 145g/km CO2 emissions, while for the LC 500, powered by a 471bhp 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine, the respective figures are 24.6mpg and 263g/km.
Lexus’s Geneva motor show presentation includes the Launch Edition version of the new LC, a limited-run model that will be produced to celebrate the introduction of the luxury coupe in Europe.
Launch Edition versions of the full hybrid LC 500h and V8-powered LC 500 are distinguished by their F-White exterior paint finish and contrasting Breezy Blue interior. They are also fitted with 21-inch alloy wheels that are otherwise exclusive to Sport and Sport+ grade models.
