Is there anything engaging about a design?
Just demeanour during it. Even in a intensely typical photos we took in a precipitate before a sky fell in, we can see that a LC500 is positively drool-inducing. It’s gothic-meets-the-21st-century-meets-1980s-Miami-Vice styling, and it all works superbly.
Even better, it still retains a roughly unfit looks we saw when a LC500 Concept debuted during a Detroit engine uncover in 2016. And yes, there’s some-more than a flitting similarity to a Lexus LFA supercar from 2011.
Low during only 1.3m tall, far-reaching during 2m across, and prolonged during 4.8m, a LC500 is all carp and hips and hulk 21-inch rims that tuck into those huge arches.
I was also taken by a tear-drop styling to a head- and taillights, and that now informed shaft grille looks some-more during home on this Lexus than on any other. The doorway handles that lay flush opposite a physique of a automobile and cocktail out when we poke them are also a good touch.
The LC500 we tested was propitious with a $15,000 Enhancement Pack, that includes a CO roof, active back wing, CO interior damage plates, leather-and-Alcantara seats and a rear-wheel steering system.
The cabin can’t utterly compare a extraneous for a overwhelming looks, yet it’s still special, from those superb doorway handles and a stitched upholstery to a thickly bolstered seats that we dump down deeply into.
There is some Toyota/Lexus ordinariness in a cabin, though, such as a screen, that while far-reaching and majestic, is some-more Microsoft than Apple if we get what we mean. And that also goes for a media unit, too, and that controller pad with a stupid PC-style curser.
