Deliveries of the new LC to European customers will start from August this year. 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.
Lexus' 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 fuel economy 6.4 l/100 km and 145 g/km CO2 emissions, while for the LC 500, powered by a 477 DIN hp/351 kW 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine, the respective figures are 11.5 l/100 km and 263 g/km.
Lexus' Geneva Motor Show presentation will include a 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.
The Launch Edition versions of the full hybrid LC 500h and the V8-powered LC 500 are distinguished by a F-White exterior paint finish with contrasting Breezy Blue interior. They are also fitted with 21-inch alloy wheels that otherwise will be exclusive to Sport and Sport+ grade LC models.
