Lexus announced that its new LC 500 coupe that made its global debut at the 2016 Detroit Motor Show this week will be launched in South Africa.
The new Lexus LC 500 shares many of the design elements that were first introduced in the LF-LC. It’s aggressively elegant from every angle.
When viewed from the front, it sports an evolved version of the brand’s signature grille which is bordered by chrome on the edges. The front fascia is also characterised by a triple LED headlamp design and the floating L-shaped daytime running lights that give the coupe an aggressive stance.
The car’s athletic profile is further accentuated by the bulging curves and functional vents on the sides. The rear end is not short of drama either, courtesy of multi-layered tail lamps that are perched nicely at the back.
A rear diffuser and available active rear spoiler also help manage airflow during performance driving.
Luxurious finishes abound, with door panels, centre console and dash pad structures mimicking Lexus’s renowned obsession with quality.
The coupe’s cockpit and driving position have been calibrated to inspire a spirited and confident driving.
Occupants will also be treated to superior audio experience inside the cabin. The LC 500 comes standard with a new premium Pioneer audio system.
It will also feature Lexus’s renowned safety technology, Lexus Safety System +, which integrates several of Lexus’s active safety technologies – including Pre-Collision System, Lane Keep Assist, Automatic High Beam and All-Speed Active Cruise Control.
