The stunning 2018 Lexus LC marks the brand’s triumphant return to producing high-end coupes.

Speed and style go hand-in-hand in an incredibly innovative design that will be utilized in future Lexus models. The LC 500 and the LC 500h start at $92,995 and $97,505 respectively.*
The Perfect Ride for…
Those who aren’t afraid of their vehicle turning heads at every stoplight. The unprecedented balance of power, speed, and luxury of the 2018 Lexus LC Coupe is bound to draw jealous attention—and for good reason. From the high-performance engine to the stitching of the seats, every aspect of this car is of the utmost quality.
Drive & Handling
The LC 500 is powered by a 5.0-liter, naturally aspirated V8 engine that produces an incredible 471 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque. It is paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission that ensures fluid, quick shifting and sends power to the rear wheels.
If you’re looking to go green, the LC 500h combines the power of a V6 with the efficiency of an electric motor and still manages to produce a respectable 354 hp. No matter which model you choose, you’re getting one of the most powerful and luxurious coupes on the road.
Adjustable Drive modes
As you’ve surely gathered, the 2018 LC Coupe is a seriously high-performance vehicle. However, the engineers at Lexus know that drivers might not want that driving style all the time. Comfort mode provides a more forgiving ride that feels good on a variety of roads. On the other hand, the Sport and Sport+ modes are perfect if you really want to push your coupe.
Unsurprisingly, the interiors of both models are covered with the highest-quality materials and are filled with top-of-the-line features. The driver and front passenger seats have plenty of legroom and are fully adjustable for maximum comfort. If you want additional support for a more aggressive driving style, there are optional sports seats as well.
If you’re not looking for a sporty high-end coupe, Lexus offers many other options that are sure to fit your needs. The 2017 Lexus LX is a rugged, yet refined SUV that can go off road as easily as it can cart the kids to school. The 2017 Lexus LS is the quintessential luxury sedan that radiates sophistication and capability.
