Lexus cars have always been admired for their gorgeous yet boring cars. However, this time the company has pulled out all the stops to make a completely different-looking vehicle. The 2018 Lexus LC is described by some as the most convincing show of courage from Lexus ever since the company announced the 1990 LS.
The 2018 Lexus LS is said to be the best car designed by the company. Even though it weighs as much as an SUV, its handling is said to be so fluid, and the ride so resilient, that it was compared to a high-end sports car. Indeed, it bears an uncanny resemblance to some of the most popular sports cars in the world.
The 2018 Lexus LC drives a sharp counterpoint to the most recent Lexus sports car, which is the Lexus LFA. It has a completely different shape. One can see a slight resemblance to a Jaguar F-Type, a Renault Alpine GTA, and some other cool cars.
In terms of performance, the go-to model in the LC series is the LC 500. This vehicle has a 5.0-liter V8 naturally aspirated engine, which gives 467 horsepower and 389 pound-feet of torque. The 2018 Lexus LC 500 goes from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds, so it compares favorably with some of the fast cars around. the vehicle has a top speed of 168 mph.
The 2018 Lexus LC is built on a platform shared with an upcoming LS sedan. The body is made of a combination of steel, aluminum and carbon fiber, which combines beautiful to give the vehicle a rigidity that does not affect handling in any way.
At about 4,435 pounds, the Lexus LC weighs as much as a Porsche Cayenne. However, this is not so obvious at first glance. That’s how beautifully designed the vehicle is. The 2018 Lexus LC is described as the most extroverted Lexus ever, and the company has put a lot of effort in making this possible. It’s almost like the company is fighting off a “boring” tag.
