At the beginning of year, in the Salon of the car of Detroit, made appearance by time first the Lexus LC 500. A sporty body coupé and a cabin for 2 + 2 seater directly derived from the prototype Lexus LC-LF. Now, at the SEMA in Las Vegas, coach Gordon Ting has presented a unique version much more “racing” of the luxurious and sporty coupé.
It is, according to them, “First LC 500 custom in the world”. Aesthetically, you receive a yellow tone your body, but also wins a stunning aerodynamic kit that gives a great aggressiveness around outside with a very sharp lower lip, side skirts, side vents, rear spoiler in the same color of the bodywork and a robust rear diffuser which houses two large exhaust outlets.
10-spoke, satin tone wheels, are 22 -inch Pirelli P Zero Nero tires mounted Brake system has a six-piston Brembo callipers on the front axle and four pistons in the back, in the same satin finish of the rims. The suspension, adjustable, come from the hand of the specialist KW.
Not everything is aesthetic and part cycle, and that this Lexus LC 500 it has also increased the performance of its propeller. The coupé has been modified its 5-liter V8 and 477 HP, increasing its displacement to the 5.6 litre and getting a 54 HP gain, so the power of this unit is the 531 cv. The most surprising thing of all is that Lexus says that its V8 is not tight, since it could double the power offered in series variant, i.e., could overcome the 950 HP.
The Lexus LC 500 of series will begin its marketing in some markets starting from the spring of 2017.
