Lexus has revealed that the new V8-powered LC 500 and full hybrid LC 500h luxury coupes will cost from £76,595.
The LC 500 and LC 500h will each be available in standard form or with the optional Sport and Sport+ packs.
Standard features include full LED lighting, front and rear parking sensors, Lexus Premium Navigation with 12-speaker audio and 10.25-inch display, semi-aniline leather upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable heated and ventilated front seats, aluminium scuff plates and sports pedals, power steering wheel adjustment, 20-inch alloy wheels and glass panoramic roof.
All versions are also equipped with Lexus Safety System+, featuring Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Crash Safety, Lane Keep Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition, Sway Warning and Automatic High Beam, plus a Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
The LC 500 is powered by 477ps bhp V8 with a 10-speed direct-shift automatic transmission. In the LC 500h a multi-stage hybrid system is utlised giving 358ps.
An optional Sport Pack brings the price up to £80,595 and equips the LC with 21-inch forged alloy wheels, a carbon fibre roof (in place of the glass roof), combination leather and Alcantara upholstery and eight-way power-adjustable sports front seats.
For £85,895 buyers can opt for an LC with Sport+ Pack. It features four-wheel steering, a limited slip differential, Lexus’s Variable Gear Ratio Steering and a retractable rear spoiler. The cabin gains carbon fibre scuff plates and additional Alcantara finishing for the headlining, pillars and sun visors.
Just three other options can be specified: a bespoke 13-speaker Mark Levinson premium sound system, a colour head-up display, and metallic paint.
Early demand for the new LC has been high, even before the confirmation of prices and the availability of test drives. Advance orders have already been taken for more than one third of the cars that will be available in the UK this year.
