2017 Lexus LC 500

The LC 500 was driven by a strong, appealing fundamental design target (LF-LC), and engineering teams worked tirelessly to find new solutions to maintain as much of the concept in the production car as possible. The Lexus LC 500, with the shift in engineering processes and design ideologies it represents, symbolizes the beginning of a new phase for the Lexus brand.

The heart of the new LC 500 is derived from the proven, high-revving 5.0-liter V8 that is found in the RC F and GS F. The naturally aspirated V8 was selected for its smooth, linear throttle response and emotional engine sound. The all-aluminum, 32-valve V8’s output targets 467 hp and 389 lb-ft of torque. The new engine is built for durability with lightweight, high-strength forged connecting rods and titanium valves that allow the engine to flourish at high rpm.

Helping power transfer to the rear wheels is a newly developed 10-speed automatic transmission – the first ever in a luxury automobile – with shift times rivaling those of a dual-clutch transmission. The component is smaller and lighter than some current 8-speed transmissions.
