In June of 2017, Lexus launched a sleek new coupe, dubbed LC, that was positioned to attack rivals including the BMW 6 Series and the Mercedes-Benz SL.

Two variants were available, the LC500 and LC500h, which were similiarly specified, but were distinguished by powerplant.

The former was motivated by a 351kW/540Nm 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V8 petrol engine, and the LC500h used a 264kW 3.5-litre V6 petrol-electric hybrid motor.

Standard equipment included 21-inch forged alloy wheels (with 245mm front and 275mm rear Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres), semi-aniline leather-trim with 12-way electrically adjustable heated and ventilated front seats, sports pedals, magnesium-alloy paddle shifters and stainless steel scuff plates.

Infotainment extended to a 10.3-inch centre screen and 8.0-inch driver display with “enhanced” voice control, live-traffic satellite navigation, Lexus Enform connected mobility, Siri Eyes Free/Miracast recognition, colour head-up display, plus a Mark Levinson 918-watt 13-speaker sound system.
