The LC 500 isn’t cheap, with a starting cost of $92,900. If a LC500h hybrid sounds appealing, it is accessible starting during $96,810. Our exam automobile was propitious with a few options including a preference package with discerning park assist, back cross-traffic alert, and blind mark monitoring ($1,000), 21-inch fake wheels ($2,650), a head-up arrangement ($900), a limited-slip differential ($350), Mark Levinson Premium Audio complement ($1,220), reward paint ($595), and a Performance Package with Alcantara competition seats, CO fiber roof, active back spoiler, Alcantara headliner, and CO fiber doorway sills ($5,960).
As-tested, this Infrared 2019 LC 500 came in during $105,940 including a $1,025 end fee. While this might seem like a lot, a similarly-powerful Mercedes SL 550 costs $21,000 more. A Maserati GranTurismo? $58,000 more. The Aston Martin DB11? It’s scarcely twice as much. The LC 500 might not be “affordable” though compared to the European rivals, it indeed stands as a relations bargain.
