The 2017 Lexus LC 500 is designed to create a refreshing and new to the new variants. Lexus has been known to be the hip and sophisticated environmentally friendly brand but the designs and shapes are…well, beginning to wear out and out of date. It is a good thing that he company realizes it and they are trying to do better with the new designs and variants that are getting better and better – which is an improvement from the designs of their ‘grandparents’. So, what can you expect from the new LC 500, anyway?
2017 Lexus LC 500 New Development
Lexus has done a lot of things to avoid the stereotyping of their ancestors by coming with the super LFA car and also the RC 350 coupe, which just recently launched. And now, they are coming again with the new 2017 Lexus LC 500 with a basic concept taken from their SC 430 type. As the result, the new L 500 has a unique and distinct look that combines both the old and new.
2017 Lexus LC 500 Exterior Designs
Just like the previously made SC 350, the L 500 is coming with a coupe model, enough to house 2+2 seating arrangement. The rear area has enough space but just enough for a slim and small passenger. Is it enough for a baby seat? I don’t think so – it doesn’t have enough access, anyway. It is safe to say that this new coupe is more suitable for the happy and single people.
The 2017 Lexus LC 500 has the oversized wheels with the arched body line, giving the athletic and somewhat muscular feel to the ride. There will be a massive spindle grille that dominates the front area, creating a more fitting idea and image of a sporty ride. Not only athletic, this ride is also elegant and exclusive – for sure. And thanks to the combination of carbon fiber and aluminum, the car is lighter than the previous models – which affects speed and also control.
2017 Lexus LC 500 Engine and Specs
For the engine arrangement, this coupe will be coming with the V8 5.0 liter engine – the same kind used in GS F and RC F – remember that the F type is usually getting the V8 engine. Because of the big and powerful machine, this coupe is able to deliver 467 hp of power. When it is paired up with the automatic 10 speed transmission and rear wheel driving system, the car is able to deliver an improved speed and efficiency.
2017 Lexus LC 500 Interior Cabin
For the interior cabin, the atmosphere is plush and comfy with luxurious cover of leather. Thick steering wheel is pretty handy for a better control with an improved access to the control console. Expect to find the new Remote Touch interface, similar to the one used by BMW and Audi. Will it be comfortable? You bet it will! Will it be exclusive and plush? Of course it will. In short, the new 2017 Lexus LC 500 won’t disappoint despite the limited space for the cabin.
