The pricing details have not been unveiled yet.


The 2018 Lexus LC 500 Coupe is now available in the UAE at Al-Futtaim Motors showrooms, the exclusive distributor of Lexus in the United Arab Emirates.

The flagship Lexus LC 500 hybrid is based on the LF-LC Concept, which was showcased at the 2012 North American International Auto Show. Up front, it features a large grille and sharp LED headlights. The overall body is made from light-weight materials for improved aerodynamics and high-speed stability. The panoramic roofline along with large wheel arches and 21-inch alloy wheels further adds to the overall sporty nature of the LC 500.

Koji Sato, Chief Engineer of the Lexus LC, said: “While maximizing the fundamental taste of the LF-LC, we applied completely different specifications to create a design that goes beyond the concept – a design that will captivate you as soon as you see it. In my view, pursuing beautiful design and elaborating superior performance are two very similar aspects. Beauty is the identity of Lexus’ design. Every feature of the LC is the result of an integrated approach to design and engineering. The entire team has worked together, including engineers and designers, to create such a great car.”

“The all-new Lexus LC is a flagship coupe which represents the evolution of Lexus as a lifestyle brand that will surprise and delight customers. The car symbolizes the beginning of a new phase for Lexus, which is all about creating greater synergy between engineering and design,” said Takayuki Yoshitsugu, Chief Representative of the Middle East and North Africa Representative Office, Toyota Motor Corporation. “The LC makes the strongest statement yet about the brand’s future direction and is the result of painstaking craftsmanship, attention to detail and an advanced, future-oriented approach to engineering. It’s a car that offers a pleasurable driving experience which enhances the user’s lifestyle.”

On the inside, the Lexus LC 500 cockpit boasts a highly intuitive instrument panel with a TFT display, comfortable leather seating, and a phenomenal Mark Levinson 13-speaker sound system.

The safety features include a pre-crash system, dynamic radar cruise control, lane-keep assist, automatic high beam, parking assist, anti-lock braking system, vehicle stability control, rear-cross traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring and more.

Powering the 2018 Lexus LC 500 Coupe is a 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine which develops 471 horsepower. This unit allows it to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 4.7 seconds. The hybrid model features a multi-stage hybrid system which combines the gasoline engine with two electric motors. The 2018 Lexus LC 500 is available with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
