Lexus released their new luxury coupe, the LC500, in Japan on March 16.
The LC500 was based on the revolutionary design of the LF-LC concept, first announced at the Detroit Motor Show in 2012. The body comes in at 4,770mm in length, 1,920mm in width, 1,345mm height, and has a wheel base of 2,870mm. With its low center of gravity, low height, and large width, this car gives off an aggressive stance. Fenders that leave the tires jutting out provide a accented, solid, and clever design for a coupe.
The interior houses a cockpit that gives an enhanced driving experience, and coupled with a passenger seat that envelopes the rider, provides a unique luxury coupe born from both a sense of glamor and functionality. Furthermore, the placement of pedals and switches, the incline of the steering wheel, and the grip of the seats all make for an intricate coupe layout that provides an unparalleled driving experience.
