Lexus LC 500 the Sportscar of your Dreams for cruising around Atlanta
The Lexus LC 500 is a luxury automobile masquerading as a supercar. Today, we will discuss why the Lexus LC 500 is one of the finest grand touring cars and why you should consider purchasing one for high-speed cruising.
The LC comes standard with what Lexus terms “Adaptive Variable Suspension,” which is a fancy way of saying that you can adjust the suspension of your LC 500 to be anywhere from comfortable to extremely comfortable for navigating Decatur and Peachtree City roads.
Normal, Custom, Comfort, Eco, Sport S, and Sport+ are the six available modes for the LC 500’s drivetrain. Except for Sport+, the majority of these are reasonably self-explanatory. In Sport+ mode, the 10-speed automatic transmission of the LC 500 shifts more rapidly between gear ratios, and the steering sensation is altered.
The LC 500 Performance will make you relish road trips
The LC 500 is powered by a 5.0-liter engine that generates 471 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. It can go from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds by sending all of its propulsion to the rear wheels.
The LC is available with a V6 engine with 35 MPG on the highway, a welcome alternative to the V8’s rating of 25 MPG on the highway. There’s slightly less power – 354 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque vs the V8 but you aren’t sacrificing much for better fuel economy. Despite having less horsepower than its V8 sibling, it has a 0-60 time of just 4.8 seconds.
The maximum speed of the LC 500 is electronically limited to 168 miles per hour, which is quite remarkable given that most modern vehicles are already limited to 155 miles per hour.
How does the interior of the LC 500 look?
Standard equipment includes a 10.3-inch infotainment display with navigation, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Alexa, and a mobile hotspot. And on the interior, there is more space than any passenger could ever need, but only for the driver.
The interior of the LC 500 is available in a multitude of colors and stitching patterns, especially if you choose the Bespoke Build model. Are you prepared to customize your Lexus LC-500 for use around Fayetteville? Come test drive it at Butler Lexus South Atlanta.
