Car reviews - Lexus - LC - 500

Overview

Lexus has makes “10 dynamic engineering improvements” to LC500, have they worked?

14 Jan 2021

EARLIER this year, Lexus announced it updated its flagship LC500 coupe with “10 dynamic engineering improvements” to make the big two-door more dynamic and better to drive.

 

The 10 changes consisted of a reworked transmission tune, extra instrument cowl bracing, new front control arms, altered shock-absorber length, stronger front and rear coils with enhanced spring rates, new stabiliser bars front and rear, lighter rear alloy wheels (21-inch), Yamaha-developed rear performance dampers on the LC500 and Active Cornering Assist.

 

Inevitably, the upgrades have driven the price up by around $5000 with the V8-powered LC500 checking in at a cool $194,747 plus on-roads while the LC500h V6 hybrid brandishes a $195,165 sticker price.

 

Unlike other upgrades, the 2020 tweaks to the LC500 were not included as part of a radical facelift – there is literally no visual difference between the updated version and the outgoing one, which in our opinion is a wonderful thing because this is one of the best-looking cars on the road.

 

Does it have the chops to match though?
