LC IN REVIEW
Hear from the experts why the LC is best in class.
BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL
The LC is ‘proof that there’s a mad streak in Lexus: bold, brave and uncompromising in both technology and design’. Topgear are impressed by the ‘spectacularly complicated’ hybrid system and ‘triumph’ of an engine, but it’s the audacious design that really turns their heads.
AN OBJECT OF DESIRE
8/10, and ‘one of the most desirable GTs on sale today. The Telegraph references Lexus’ enviable record for reliability and performance but sees the LC as particularly extroardinary, writing that LC ‘could easily pass as a six-figure supercar, such is the attention to detail.’
RAZOR SHARP, WELL-ROUNDED
4/5 stars for the LC, with its ‘razor sharp but well rounded’ design and ‘modest price’ for the quality of build. Autocar see the LC as an exciting prospect, breaking the ‘endlessly frustrating’ cycle of concept cars with a model that is indistinguishable from the original LF-LC concept.
HIGH-TECH AND STYLE-LED
‘High-tech and style led,’ Auto Express praises both hybrid and V8 LCs for ‘packing plenty of punch’ with ‘sports car agility.’ Describing the LC as a ‘compelling alternative to German GTs’, the review details the in-car experience including the high-end hi-fi from Mark Levinson.
SPECIAL AND EXOTIC
‘A GT that feels as special and exotic as it looks.’ Recognising the LC as both playful and reliable, with a ‘charismatic engaging drive’ under a design that’s ‘otherworldly yet elegant,’ Evo describes how the LC500’s V8 is ‘more pleasant to use and listen to than a turbocharged Porsche.’
‘Surprisingly soulful and fun,’ WhatCar find sufficient performance drama and driver involvement to hold the interest of any car enthusiast. Exploring the different LC models in detail, the V8 comes off best for thrills and the V6 hybrid as a refined, economical choice.
