Lexus LC500. More pictures

Still looking quite stunning.

It could do without all that grey plastic trim around the lights, but that's OK.
Still an amazing design, I think.

Inside too. Except the "all beige" interior isn't really my taste.
I think it would look much better in a tan/black combo.
(Which is probably available)

And while I'm at it, I'll also wish for a glass panel to replace the carbon fiber top. Why not...

The V8 produces 467HP. Connected to a new 10 speed Auto.

A hybrid version is coming soon (With a V6). Not sure if that will be available in the US or not.

Truly a 21st century Lexus.

The door handle design appears incomplete. It presents a striking resemblance to the Prius design. The interior design lacks functional aspects. Lastly, the gaping front hole across the face reminds of snuff.

When I saw the first pictures of it a few days ago I thought "bah, Lexus just keeps teasing us with a new tweaked version of the concept". When I found out I was actually looking at the production car I was "WHOA!". This is a seriously impressive car, much more so than the LFA. If it drives as well as its predecessor did (according to Jezza, not that I've ever had the privilege!), this could be one of the memorable supercars of this decade

Hey Vince, this is a gorgeous car. I'm surprised you haven't posted anything about the Infiniti Q60 Coupe, another stunning vehicle. Especially considering the price point it will compete in.

Totally striking. Instant classic. Runaway hit. Congrats Toyota.

The ONLY Lexus that shows any livable style or substance. FINALLY, a Toyota that lives up to the hype.
