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 4.5 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. A convertible version may follow.
