Time to “Flex Like a Lex” in the halo vehicle of the Japanese family, known as the 2023 LC 500h, representing in hybrid form. Finished in Atomic Silver, Automotive Rhythms’ provocative super coupe offers owners sophisticated styling, supreme on-road maneuverability, and an array of technological amenities for smooth sailing.
Under the hood is a strategically packaged 3.5-liter V6 helping the RWD coupe achieve 33 highway miles per gallon while kicking out 354 hybrid horses. This engine setup is dubbed LEXUS MULTISTAGE HYBRID System, consisting of a gas motor and two electric engines. There is also the option to drive in all Electric mode when you want to cruise around town with a green thumb. Furthermore, with handling and pure agility at the top of the charts, Lexus packaged the ride with Active Rear Steering.
Step inside to discover a compact but seductive interior crafted with a low center of gravity and motorsports orientation once you take position. The cockpit features aluminum pedals, carbon fiber door scuff plates, long magnesium paddle shifters, and Drive Mode Select with Sport+ for the coupe’s best performance optimization. Our Lexus was laid out with red sporty seats with Alcantara-trimmed inserts and a black Alcantara headliner.
Audio, navigation, vehicle settings, and other apps are operated through Lexus Interface curated with a 12.3” display featuring Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, an AT&T Wi-Fi hotspot, and the upgraded 13-speaker Mark Levinson Reference Surround Sound.
Lexus left no stones unturned when unearthing this sleek and futuristically designed physique. It’s set off by the Japanese brand’s massive spindle grille, 21” staggered 10-spoke forged alloy wheels, an upgraded carbon fiber roof, flush door handles, and a rear wing that deploys at higher speeds. Keep in mind that the LC also comes in convertible form for those who love cool summer breezes.
Currently in Lexus dealerships, the LC 500h Coupe’s starting MSRP is $100,600. Let’s ride!
