The new car from Lexus, LC 500 will come out with great sports qualities. Lexus doesn’t want to describe the car as a sports car. It will be a beautiful car that is targeted to hit the market quite soon that can be in 2017 in Detroit Auto Show. If so, it will be the new 2018 Lexus LC 500 with some slight redesigns to make it much more different from the predecessor. At this time, many of us expect that the car will be completed with better engine capabilities. In fact, the car is the most rigid in Lexus history. Therefore, it would be great if it has great features for its inner and outer part.

Design

The exterior design is totally excellent. It seems Lexus did a serious job for this car. It has very attractive design with sporty look and the outer part has some minor redesigns. For example, if you see the front band you might recognize that the car has been revised. The hood is also lower than the predecessor. The vast grille and the recognizable grille are designed with 3-D mesh look. In addition, the headlight will be new that is quite identical to LF-LC concept with more dramatic appearance. The LED system will be added for its headlights and taillights to enhance road vision. What is more is that they will use narrowing roofline, big rear fender with curves that is similar to LF-LC concept. The sides of 2018 LC 500 might get 20 or 21 large alloy wheels with superb tires to enhance grip on road and the front bumper will have double small air intakes for its aerodynamic performance.

What you will find inside the new 2018 Lexus LC 500 will be luxurious design with most parts that are covered by Alcantara such as the entire dashboard, steering wheel, center console and all seats. It also has very simple instrument cluster with single gauge in center that also works as tachometer. Other than that, there is sports shifter located on the center console. We glad that it has longer wheelbase that will give more space inside for higher level of comfort. Some features will be added such as Pioneer premium audio system, cruise control, new software system, lane keep assist, pre-collision system, traction control, stability control and auto high-beam assist. Well, many more.

Engine

As the next generation, it seems that the company will support it with V8 engine and 5.0 liter under the hood. This engine works best to produce about 467 hp and 389 pound-feet of torque. It will be designed with rear wheel drive with the support of 10-speed auto transmission system. About the acceleration, it takes 4.5 seconds to reach from 0 to 60 mph. The top speed is still veiled. The active exhaust system will give aggressive engine noise for 2018 Lexus LC 500.
