The 2018 Lexus LC was taken for a test. The Lexus is in similar shape and proportion to the Mercedes-Benz SL550. The previous Lexus LS sedan was a 4,466 pounds vehicle. Its inner gearing is like a NASCAR 4v speed times six. If the LC 500 could pushes itself to the redline during 10th gear it would be going about 336 mph.
- Despite some flaws, the LC 500/500h provide a luxury experience nobody else currently does.
- Furthermore if you imagined the LC 500h hybrid chasing down a BMW i8 hybrid with its similar output, you’ll be disappointed again.
- The LC 500’s 4,370-pound and LC 500h’s 4,471-pound curb weights (as-tested) certainly play a part.
