Current Model
    The Lexus LC 500, available in coupe and convertible body styles, is the luxury brand's halo car. The 5.0-liter V8 engine generates 471-hp, and it feels muscular and sounds melodious.
    Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 10-speed automatic transmission. A 3.5-liter V6 hybrid version is also available, and it has several driving modes that range from a docile electric drive to a more spirited demeanor. Handling is agile, and the ride isn't too taxing. Interior quality is top-notch. The controls are unintuitive, including the concealed opening and closing controls for the convertible soft top, but at least operating the roof can be done when the car is moving up to about 30-mph. The token rear seat is good for a purse or small dog. Updates for 2022 included minor suspension tuning. FCW, AEB, and BSW are standard.

    2018 Redesign Year
    The Lexus LC 500, a 2+2 coupe, is the luxury brand's halo car. The 5.0-liter V8 engine is borrowed from the high-performance GS F sedan and RC F coupe, generating 471 hp.
    Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 10-speed automatic transmission, enabling a claimed 0-60 mph sprint of less than 4.4 seconds. This version of the LC has enjoyable levels of performance, driving engagement, and engine/exhaust sounds. A 3.5-liter V6 hybrid version is also available, and it has several driving modes that range from a docile electric drive to a more spirited demeanor. Unlike other Toyota hybrids, the transmission mimics gear changes. Handling is agile, and the ride isn't too taxing. The controls are very unintuitive (but at least Apple CarPlay is supported). Changes for 2020 include standard blind spot warning with rear cross traffic warning. Updates for 2022 include minor suspension tuning.
