The stunning new LC500 has a pricetag and options list!!
The car is making its first appearances at Lexus corporate offices this week ahead of its showroom arrival around April or May of 2017 as a 2018 model.
Two variants: the Lc500 making 471 ponies and the LC500h making 354HP for its full hybrid drivetrain are priced from $93k and $97k, respectively.
A handful of very desirable options are not to be forgotten when pricing out this hot supercoupe: the Touring pack at four grand and the Sport packages at a few grand more. The Sport pack includes a limited-slip differential in back and comes with either a glass roof or a carbon-fiber roof. The Sport Carbon-roof model is a $7k upgrade over the standard LC500 and up $5400 on the LC500h.
The Performance pack ups the ante further: it has the Sport Carbon upgrades as well as active rear steering, variable-ratio front steering, an active spoiler and full CF for the roof and the front/rear lower bumpers. Great value at $10k! =]
