The Lexus LC is a grand tourer produced by Lexus, Toyota's luxury division. Based on the 2012 LF-LC Concept, it was introduced in 2016 at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It followed the SC, which was built from 1991 to 2010. It is the first Lexus model to use the GA-L platform, which is shared with the full-size LS 500 sedan. According to the maker, the name "LC" stands for "Luxury Coupe".
The standard LC500 is powered by a high-performance 5.0-liter V-8 engine, which produces 471 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque and paired to a quick-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission. The other engine offered is the LC500h's 354-hp gas-electric powertrain, which couples a 3.5-liter V-6, a pair of electric motors, a 1.1-kWh lithium-ion battery, and a unique continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) that simulates the 10-speed automatic shifter.
