2019 Lexus LC Yellow Edition

There’s more to this beauty than meets the eye

On its own, the Lexus LC 500 is a flamboyant car. The unmistakable styling cues give it a look that’s all its own, and its 471-horsepower V-8 engine helps it straddle the line between a capable touring car and an everyday supercar. But just as the LC 500 already has its own identity, there are still ways to bring out even more of its personality. That’s what we get with the LC 500 Yellow Edition, the latest in a long line of exclusive additions to the flagship coupe’s range.

2020 Lexus LC F

2020 Lexus LC F

Lexus’ take on the upcoming BMW M8

After more than two years of constant teasing and two concept cars, Lexus unveiled a new 2+2 coupe at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. Dubbed LC500, the new coupe is stunning to look at, has a luxurious interior, and comes with a stout, naturally aspirated V-8 powerplant. Come 2018 and the Japanese firm is working on a beefed-up version with an "F" badge.

Despite having two extra seats and missing a V-10 powerplant, the LC500 is already being considered a successor to the mighty LFA. Granted, the two have very little in common as far as underpinnings go, but I can totally understand why Lexus enthusiasts are comparing it to the LFA. The LC500 has a strong presence, a low-slung stance, and it blends luxury and sportiness under the same roof. It’s nowhere near as powerful as the LFA, but what if Lexus is planning to release a more potent version later on? These new spy shots suggest that we may soon be able to buy an LC F model with more power and a more aggressive exterior.

Servicing a Lexus LFA Isn't As Easy As It Looks

Servicing a Lexus LFA Isn’t As Easy As It Looks

That’s the price you usually pay for owning a car that costs almost $500,000

Just like the Bugatti Veyron, the Lexus LFA isn’t a standard production car. And just like the Veyron, the LFA’s maintenance doesn’t fall under traditional service requirements. The Japanese automaker revealed as much, saying that servicing an LFA is more like servicing a race car than a standard production model.

2018 Lexus RC F Sport Black Line Edition

Care for a splash of new colors and features on your Lexus RC F?

The Lexus RC is probably one of the most underrated performance sports coupés on the market today. It looks good, has the chops to compete against a car like the BMW M4, and carries a more reasonable price than most of its competitors. In an effort to keep the RC F fresh in our minds, Lexus is launching a special edition version of the coupé, called the RC F Sport Black Line Special Edition. Only 650 units of the special edition RC F will be made, and it’s available across the entire RC lineup.

What It's Like to Daily Drive the Lexus LC500

What It’s Like to Daily Drive the Lexus LC500

A grand tourer that’s fine with commuting… mostly

The 2018 Lexus LC500 is a stunningly beautiful coupe that looks more like a concept car than a production model. That visual appeal, combined with its sultry interior and angry V-8, solidly confirm its place as an aspirational vehicle. It would be right at home on a bedroom poster next to high-end sports cars from Ferrari or Lamborghini. Yet this 2+2 coupe isn’t a true sports car, but a grand tourer with comfort and luxury as its main objective with a go-fast nature coming in second.

It’s this aim at luxury that makes the LC500 a pleasure to daily drive. Of course, the 471-horsepower V-8, 10-speed automatic, and rear-wheel drive that turn the pleasure into outright giddy fun.

Why The Lexus LC500 Isn't Perfect

Why The Lexus LC500 Isn’t Perfect

The misunderstood labeling that’s hurting the LC’s image

Read nearly any online review of the 2018 Lexus LC500 and you’ll be left thinking the car is too heavy, too underpowered, and too expensive. And in defense of my fellow automotive journalists out there, they mean well but miss the LC’s essence – its thesis statement. Compared to many 2+2 luxury coupes with V-8 power and rear-wheel drive, the LC simply falls short in the performance category. Unfortunately, this narrow-angle view entirely misses the point of the LC’s existence.

The 2018 Lexus LC500 is the Perfect Ride for a Valentine’s Day Date

A hot ride for a hot date

It’s Valentine’s Day, and so long as you’re not celebrating Single’s Awareness Day, you’ve probably got a romantic date planned for tonight. While most people will ride to the restaurant in their Toyota Camry or Chevrolet Tahoe, they’re dreaming of arriving at the valet booth with something a bit more… upscale.

It seems the 2018 Lexus LC500 fits the bill rather perfectly. Let me explain.

Luxury combines with power to make driving an enriched experience

The 2018 Lexus LC500 is impossible to miss. Drive it anywhere and people will point, take pictures, and ask questions – both about the car and your best investment advice. The LC500 imparts an air of luxury and sophistication that not many vehicles can match. That’s especially true when, like my tester, the 2+2 coupe is draped in Liquid Platinum paint, fitted with the upgraded 21-inch wheels, and shows hints of its red interior through the windows. The LC simply looks like money.

And given its price tag, looking the part is the least it should do.

Lexus charges a whopping $92,000 for a “base” model LC500. Adding options makes the price rise quicker than Diet Coke out of a Mentos-filled bottle. My tester stickered for $100,920. That’s some serious coin for a vehicle some bill as a “personal luxury coupe.” But is it worth it? And more importantly, what is the LC500?
