Lexus LC Latest Updates
The LC500h will be positioned as a GT or Grand Tourer. India will only get the hybrid variant of the LC. Sadly, we won't get the one with the V8 engine. Then again, given that Lexus India's portfolio currently boasts of majority cars getting hybrid powertrains, this move does not come as a surprise. The LC500h will get the 3.5-litre petrol engine which produces 295 bhp. There are two electric motors which will produce 177bhp and there's a lithium ion battery for the energy to be stored. Now total combined output stands at 354bhp and this translates into a 0-100 kmph time of just above 5 seconds.
The LC500h looks mad and devilishly handsome. Lexus has really turned a new leaf with its design. Up front, it gets the massive spindle grille, which is a family identity now, L-shaped DRLs and three LED headlamps, which blend well into the design. There's a bit of aggression on the face and the low hood makes it look as if it's closer to the ground and gives it a sports car like stance. The pinched waist, blackened C-Pillars and the creases to the side, add a lot of drama to the look. As you move to the rear, the LC500h gets wider and there's no doubt it looks stunning.
