2018 Lexus LC 500 Ignition Episode is Live Now on Motor Trend OnDemand
The latest episode of Ignition is live now on Motor Trend OnDemand, and it features Lexus’ hot new coupe, the LC 500. Is the new model closer to the last SC luxury cruiser or a spiritual successor to the mighty Toyota Supra? Find out in this episode.
Senior features editor and host Jason Cammisa gets to test the flagship luxury sport coupe in the mountains near Palm Springs, Calif. There, he has plenty of room to experience the 471 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque from the LC’s naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8. In addition to the V-8-powered LC 500, the LC 500h hybrid also makes an appearance. With its 3.5-liter V-6 and dual electric motors, that more eco-friendly variant makes 354 hp combined.
Is the Lexus LC 500 a bona fide Japanese supercar or a cushy, hot-looking $92,975 luxury two-door? Head over to Motor Trend OnDemand to find out. Don’t have a subscription yet? Sign up for a free 30-day trial now to see all the premium automotive content you’re missing out on.
