Lexus LC 500 Looks Drop-Dead Gorgeous In Chicago
Visitors of the 2016 Chicago Auto Show will get to see the new stunning that makes its second public appearance right after its NAIAS debut.
Although it’s still too early, we assume that the LC 500 is going to be on the 2016 end of year best models list.
Changes to the LF-LC study revealed in late 2011, were kept to a minimum, a rarity for such an extreme design.
Underpinned by the new GA-L platform it goes against the forced induction trend by using a naturally aspirated it carries a 5.0-liter V8 borrowed from the RC F and GS F. Its 467hp are sent the rear wheels via a brand new Aisin 10-speed auto transmission, making for a naught to 100km/h (62mph) acceleration of less than 4.5 seconds.
Going after a pretty strong competition, it’s only natural to come with the latest tech that includes adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation and lane-keeping assist. The manufacturer will also allow prospective buyers to replace the standard panoramic glass with an optional carbon fiber roof.
