If you had exactly $100,000 – what would you buy? Better yet, if you had $100,000, which car would you pick to park in your driveway? How about the Lexus LC 500 or its hybrid sibling – the Lexus LC 500h?
The all-new 2018 Lexus LC supercars are here to spice things up for the luxury brand’s lineup and they are making quite a buzz. The Lexus LC 500 is powered by a good ol’ naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine making 471 horsepower with a maximum torque of 398 lb-ft. The Lexus LC 500h, on the other hand, is powered by a 3.5-liter full hybrid V6 powertrain that spits out a total of 354 horsepower. So how much will it cost?
Well, when we asked what you would buy for $100,000 – we forgot to tell you that you might have a couple of thousand left over. The 2018 Lexus LC 500 carries a starting price tag of $92,000* – while the 2018 Lexus LC 500h carries a starting price tag of $96,510*.
At this point, you’re probably thinking that by the time you add the optional extras that make a car fun, you’ll be well over $100,000. Well, you’d be wrong. The 2018 Lexus LC 500 and Lexus LC 500h come with a long range of standard options including, a 10.3 inch TFT multi-information display, LED headlamps, paddle shifters, the new Lexus Remote Touch Interface touchpad, paddle shifters, USB/AUX connectivity, Bluetooth, and much more.
