Comfort & Design
With an ultra-low center-of-gravity body, and wider tread and tires, the LC 500 strikes a sleek and seductive silhouette.
SHARP FRONT FAÇADE
Newly developed ultra-compact LED headlamps, arrowhead daytime running lights and a dynamic new spindle grille lend boldness to the LC 500’s front façade.
Select the Performance Package for carbon-fiber detailing, including a sleek carbon roof and inner-door panels.
Driving-related switches and controls located around the steering wheel make it easier to concentrate solely on driving.
Expect pure brilliance when you turn on the LC 500’s elegant L-shaped taillights, made with 80 LEDs on each side.
Newly developed run-flat tires grip the asphalt of your favorite roads, so you can keep on driving to a safe spot long after all the air has gone.
FLUSH DOOR HANDLE
For even greater aerodynamic performance and a beautiful minimalist door design, the outside door handle is flush against the door surface.
The tachometer display changes to emphasize priority information according to the selected drive mode. For example, in SPORT S mode, the tachometer displays enlarged numbers.
ECO DRIVING INDICATOR
The LC promotes eco-friendly driving with an indicator that lights up when the accelerator is used in an eco-friendly manner.
A standard feature on the LC 500, the panoramic glass roof closes the distance between your environment and you.
After extensively testing and measuring the distribution of pressure on the palm during actual driving, we created a steering wheel suitable even for circuit driving.
LEATHER SHIFT KNOB
A beautifully ornamented leather shift knob, designed to fit snugly into your hand, is just another example of Lexus’s dedication to the details.
MARK LEVINSON® AUDIO
One of the most premium audio systems in luxury cars, Mark Levinson’s® 13 ultra-high efficiency speakers ensure unparalleled sound quality that rivals even the finest concert halls.
UNDER THE HOOD
The LC 500 is powered by a robust 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine pumping out 471 horsepower and 540Nm of torque.
10-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
The all-new 10-speed automatic transmission ensures that you will be in the optimum gear in any situation.
WIDE GEAR RATIO
A wide gear ratio range enables smooth and powerful start-off acceleration while allowing comfortable high-speed cruising.
LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY
The LC 500’s driving position sits 80mm further rearward than convention dictates, while the hip point is positioned lower, creating an ideal center of gravity supporting driving excellence.
Six-piston calipers on the front and four-piston calipers on the rear enhance braking power, so you can max your drive and still stop at the traffic light.
The highly maneuverable LC 500 responds exactly in accordance to the turn of the steering wheel, providing even greater driving fun for you behind the wheel.
The LC 500 cuts through the air with aerodynamic features, including aero stabilizing fins, an active rear wing and the world’s first rear aero ducts.

The LDH system creates faithful handling by enhancing steering response, so your vehicle is stable even when you drive at the limit.
DRIVE MODE SELECT
Select performance to match your driving style with four drive modes: NORMAL, ECO, SPORT S and SPORT S+.
WORLD’S TOP COLLISION SAFETY
Protect yourself and your loved ones with the LC 500’s competitor-besting frame strength that has passed many high-level collision tests.
IMPACT-ABSORBING POP-UP HOOD
To reduce risk of injuries to pedestrians, a sensor-activated safety system creates a space between the hood and the engine if an impact is detected.
The Dynamic Radar Cruise Control monitors fatigue by helping you maintain a safe distance from the preceding vehicle.
LANE DEPARTURE ASSIST
If you drift into another lane without a turn signal, the LDA system alerts you with a buzzer and on the multi-information display.
BLIND SPOT MONITOR
Know when vehicles are approaching from behind, even at higher speeds, with the next-generation Blind Spot Monitor.
