Lexus is showcasing the Lexus LC at the 2017 Thai Motor Expo. The luxury coupe is now available to order in Thailand.
The Lexus LC is the production version of the Lexus LF-FC concept. It uses the new GA-L platform that also underpins the Lexus LS. It is available in two variants: LC 500 (petrol) and LC 500h (petrol-electric hybrid). In Thailand, only the LC 500 is being offered. It sports the 2UR-GSE 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine that produces 477 PS at 7,100 rpm and 540 Nm of torque at 4,800 rpm. A 10-speed automatic transmission sends drive to the rear wheels. Lexus claims a fuel economy rating of 8.13 km/l.
LED triple-prosector headlamps with L-shaped LED clearance markers, 21-inch forged alloy wheels, dimensional tail lamps with LED lighting, glass panorama roof/carbon-fibre roof and active rear wing are the key exterior features of the Lexus LC 500.
Interior highlights include Alcantara seats with 10-way electric adjustment for the front seats and memory function for the driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, Lexus LFA-inspired 8-inch driver information display, colour head-up display, 10.3-inch infotainment system display, 915-watt and 13-speaker Mark Levinson Reference Surround Sound audio system.
The Lexus LC 500 costs 16.95 million Baht (INR 3,34,46,460.38) in Thailand. Local reports suggest Lexus will import the car on special order basis with an estimated delivery time of about six months.
