New 351kW quad-cam V8 Lexus LC 500 coming to Australia.
The rebirth of Lexus as a more performance-orientated brand continues with confirmation just coming in that the just unveiled 2017 LC 500 will be available in Australia.
The 2017 Lexus LC 500 was shown for the first time overtime at the Detroit Auto Show and packs quite a punch! The quad-cam 5.0 litre V8 engine under the bonnet giving the coupe 351kW and 530Nm.
The new Lexus LC 500 will feature the same V8 engine as found in the RC F and GS F.
Lexus Australia boss, Peter McGregor, was quick to confirm the performance model would definitely be available here.
“The LC 500 epitomises the new spirit of Lexus and will act as a lighthouse model for our expanding range.”
While in launching the new model, Lexus branding boss, Akio Toyoda, says the LC 500 is all about changing perceptions of the Lexus brand.
” This flagship luxury coupe’s proportions, stunning design and performance make a strong statement about our brands’ emotional direction, and will grow the Lexus luxury appeal globally.”
