2016 Lexus LC Makes German Debut at the Nurburgring Track
The new Lexus LC luxury coupe made a high-profile debut in Germany last weekend at one of the country’s premier motoring event, the annual Nürburgring 24-hour race.
The pre-race Prologue proved an ideal arena for Lexus to present the latest addition to its model range, a prestigious parade used by many manufacturers to show off their best cars.
After the Prologue, the LC was driven to the Ring Boulevard where it remained on display throughout the event. Once the chequered flag fell, the focus moved to the circuit’s famous Hatzenbach Plateau where the coupe’s German premiere was celebrated with an after-race party.
The LC, Lexus’s flagship coupe, will be launched in spring 2017 with two powertrain options. The full hybrid LC 500h will feature a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine and Lexus’s all-new Multi Stage Hybrid System, engineered to deliver more direct response for authentic high performance. The LC 500 will be equipped with a 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine coupled to a new 10-speed automatic transmission – a world first for a luxury vehicle. The LC is the first model to be built on Lexus’s all-new GA-L platform, designed to deliver a much sharper and more refined driving experience.
