Compact engineering allows for a low bonnet that sweeps towards the Lexus signature spindle grille. The ultra-compact LED triple-projector headlight unit allows for the exceptionally short front overhang which is crucial for high-speed handling.
The rear features a retractable spoiler that automatically extends at speeds of over 50 mph to increase downforce and high-speed stability whist the side aero intakes reduce turbulence around the wheels to improve handling. Finished with a clamshell design exhaust system that has a valve that stays closed at lower speeds to reduce sound, but opens when you accelerate to improve engine output and make some serious noise.
Inside the driver-focused cabin, the attention to detail is intoxicating. Alcantara door panels form a draping effect and the leather upholstery of the seats are beautifully stitched and offer superb support and comfort. The LC’s climate concierge system features Nonoe Technology that releases negatively charged particles into the cabin to purify the air and deodorise the seats.
Available in a hand-built V8 petrol engine or the world’s first multi-stage hybrid you have a choice of exhilarating powertrains. The roof and door frames are made of incredibly strong, but seriously lightweight Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic and doors, boot and bonnet panels made from lightweight aluminium.
