San Jose drivers are always looking for style and performance. Those in the market for a high-performing sports car need to check out the 2018 Lexus LC 500. The luxuriously powerful vehicle will be sure to meet all the standards that you are looking for in a sports car.

After checking out our review below, be sure to visit us in San Jose to test drive the 2018 Lexus LC 500.


The new LC 500 is built on an all-new rear-wheel drive GA-L platform, the first of many to come for Lexus. Its design optimizes mass and weight distribution to give the LC a low center of gravity and minimal shifting while making room for newly designed multi-link suspension.

A 5.0-liter V8 engine powers the 2018 LC 500, mated to a 10-speed electronically controlled direct-shift automatic transmission. The powertrain makes 471 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque and goes from zero to 60 in 4.4 seconds. The LC also comes as a hybrid variant, the LC 500h.
