The Lexus LC is a grand tourer/personal luxury car from Lexus, Toyota's luxury division. It is based on the 2012 LF-LC Concept, designed by Toyota Calty Design Research in Newport Beach, California. It was developed under the program codename "950A" from 2011 to 2016, design work was transferred from Calty to Toyota Technical Centre in Aichi, Japan from January 2013, with a final production design freeze in the first half of 2014. The LC 500 grand tourer was introduced in January 2016 at the North American International Auto Show as a 2-door fastback coupé. It will share the same 5.0-litre 348 kW (467 bhp) 2UR-GSE V8 engine with the RC F and GS F,[ but will have 351 kW (471 hp) because of an improved intake and exhaust. It will be paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. The LC 500h was announced in January 2016 and full specifications were released in February 2016.
It will keep the rear-wheel-drive drivetrain. It features a 3.5-liter V6 engine, a hybrid transmission, and a lithium-ion battery pack with a combined 264 kW (354 bhp) output.
