We are pleased to offer 2019 Lexus LC500 s/n 6315, a one-owner, 2,159 mile automotive wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing. Introduced in late 2017 as the Halo Car of the Lexus fleet, the LC 500 is a rare find in a market turning to small displacement turbocharged engines, or, heaven forbid, all-electric cars. Power comes from an all-aluminum quad-cam 5.0-liter V8 which churns 471 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque, giving all the happy sounds one expects from a naturally aspirated V8. The 5.0 liter V8 features forged connecting rods and titanium intake and exhaust valves, good for 7,100 rpm and a where-would-you-ever-use-it 168 mph, before the speed limiter kicks in. The cylinder heads feature variable valve-timing which allows a 12.3-1 compression ratio, making this big, muscular V-8 one of the last of its kind. That power is put to the ground through a 10 speed auto with magnesium paddle shifters, which delivers plenty of linear, effortless push, backed up with an engine soundtrack that would please and impress any Ferrari V8 owner. The Lexus LC500 long-hood, short-deck, grand touring proportions are built on an all-new, rear-wheel-drive architecture that does not share components or design with any other Lexus platform. The result is serious performance-car bona fides such as an engine that sits fully aft of the front-axle centerline (so a front mid-engine actually), an active rear spoiler, an aluminum hood, aluminum front fenders, aluminum doors, and the trunk floor is made from carbon fiber composites, giving an excellent balance of power, sound, ride handling and emotion that will put a smile on any driver’s face. The greenhouse’s dramatic rearward taper allows for serious powerful rear haunches putting lots of rubber to the ground. First gear is good for 40 mph; second peaks at 67 mph; third goes to 89 mph; fourth will put you in jail at 110 mph as it crosses the quarter-mile mark and shifts to fifth, and there are yet five gears left to go! And once you’ve found out how fast the Lexus LC500 will go, the 15.7-inch front discs with six-piston aluminum calipers with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires do a great job of hauling it down.
While a Lexus LC500 is not our usual inventory, this Lexus is impressive. The flush-mounted door handle swings out to greet your hand, and the latch opens with a satisfying click. The black leather and suede sport seats feature silver contrasting stitching with memory and 10-way power adjustment, giving the perfect driving position for any size driver. There’s no lack of legroom and the dead pedal is right where it should be, while the steering wheel has power adjustment for reach and angle. For those with kids the rear seats offer two-plus-two seating and, for those who want to terrify their passenger, the center console has an integrated grab handle for the passenger. The electronics and interior package offers a Pre-Collision system, Apple CarPlay, Voice Command, Sirius XM Satellite, a 12-speaker sound system and virtually any and every other option one might want in a modern performance car.
Lexus LC500 s/n 6315 is very nicely optioned with a heated steering wheel ($250); a blind spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert ($1,000); 21′ forged wheels mounted with 245 40 RF 21 front and 275 35 RF 21 rear Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires ($2,650); a Heads-Up display ($900); a limited slip diff ($390); a leather trimmed suede interior ($1,790) and an all-weather cargo tray ($248) for a window sticker of $100,453.00, and is still registered on the original Certificate of Origin. With only 2,159 miles Lexus LC500 s/n 6315 is essentially a new car.
