A monumental feat of structural engineering the LC 500h is a responsive, fast and high-performance hybrid, built on an advanced Lexus Multistage Hybrid powertrain—a 3.5-liter, 24-valve Atkinson-cycle V6, powerful yet compact dual electric motor and a lightweight lithium-ion battery. Leading edge luxury, powerful performance, flawless lines and the ultimate in sophistication perfected by a team of over 4000 designers, engineers and technicians to deliver a truly exceptional driving experience. A dynamic, low body with menacing, wide shoulders, an aggressive, broad stance, an impossibly low centre of gravity, every design note is engineered in service of the coupe’s direct, responsive performance.
Unbelievable interior, these are just a few of the awe inspiring features that meet the eye in this magical LC paradise, Alcantara-trimmed door panels with deep, undulating lines, Ambient lighting casts a subtle shadow over curving pattern, rich materials give way to a marbled carbon fibre detailing, Leather-trimmed shift knob crafted with four strips of high-quality leather hand-sewn with an exacting technique for a smooth, even texture, Flush-surface door handle extended outward, inset LEDs illuminate the door (as the doors close the lighting fades - a conic concept developed exclusively for the LC), the interior door features a bezel-less handle with a locking brace, unique to the automotive category, the unusual design is the result of countless hours of Takumi (artisan) craftsmanship. The painstakingly crafted steering wheel elliptical shape provides optimal grip when cornering with high G-forces and allows for direct feedback from the suspension.
SHARPER, SMARTER, FASTER. The 10-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission with magnesium paddle shifters has exhilaration down to a science. And one of the fastest shift times among conventional automatic transmissions available, shifting in 0.12 seconds.
ADAPTIVE VARIABLE SUSPENSION Allows the driver to harness the engine’s power - AVS can stiffen for enhanced response based on the selected drive mode, and linear-solenoid monotube shocks reduce body lean and enhance control when cornering. DOUBLE-JOINT MULTILINK SUSPENSION SYSTEM maintains the vehicle’s low profile and 21-inch wheels while delivering exceptional agility, accuracy and immediate steering response.
PREMIUM TRIPLE-BEAM LED HEADLAMPS The triple-projector ultra-compact LED headlamps are the thinnest LED projector headlamps in the industry. Half the size of a conventional lamp, the polaric ellipsoid system combines with the daytime running lights and LED cornering lamps to create an unmistakable Lexus signature.
DIMENSIONAL REAR COMBINATION TAILLAMPS One of the most stunning features the dimensional taillamps through the adoption of the infinity mirror principle, an endless, dimensional motif is illuminated when lamps are on, and a sleek grey look appears when off. Eighty LEDs on either side create an even illumination with impressive depth and no visible grain.
