CONCEPT TO | REALITY

June 10, 2018

In concept I would like to speed down the street with the engine roaring behind me. In concept I would like to drive with no car seats in the back and Pandora powerfully bumping. In concept I would like to be in comfortable luxury yet drive like I was on a race track.

The Lexus LC 500 started as a “concept car,” meaning it was a dream car built to showcase ideas and not intended on being produced. However, with positive feedback and customer demand, Lexus took the fantasy car and made it a reality. And lucky for me, I had the honor of test driving this dream car and making my concepts a reality too.

Trust me when I say that driving the Lexus LC 500 sports coupe will warrant head turns wherever you go. Roaring at 471 horsepower and a body designed with clean and graceful lines, this car was definitely conceived with every detail in mind. Meticulously sculpted by Takumi masters with a minimum 25 years of training, Takumi use their eyes, ears and hands to inspect every inch of the vehicles ensuring perfection from end to end. While most cars are built by machines, Lexus cars are built by people and that experience and exhilaration is most definitely felt as soon as you step foot in the vehicle.

From the edgy grille, to the long, wide hood, sleek curves, flush door handles, and the infinity-mirror tail lamp, the LC 500 is impeccably chic. This is a car where people stop and stare (yes, you get used to it). The interior is just as enticing as the exterior with the rich, Rioja Red seats, leather wrapped, hand-stitched gearshift, futuristic dashboard, and opulent cabin vibe. You can tell that every detail was well thought out making the LC 500 luxurious yet comfortable to drive.

What I love most about this car is the fire-breathing roar as soon as you push the start button. The sound alone makes the LC 500 command attention. It accelerates quickly (0 – 60 mph in 4.6 seconds) and drives extremely smooth especially in the Comfort mode (this car has several modes including Sport + mode and an Eco mode) which is what I drove in most of the time. Every now and then I pushed the LC 500 to the Sport + mode alerting my passenger to grab the twin handles from the unexpected power (that was fun). The handling and brakes on the car are amazing, making it simple to maneuver tight turns and sudden stops and traffic in the streets of Los Angeles.

Some of the features of this car that require getting used to are the touchpad versus touchscreen. The sensitivity of the touchpad took some adjusting, but after a few uses, it became natural (plus you don’t get the touchscreen marred by fingerprints). I also had to get used to pressing the “Park” button instead of using the gearshift (something also easy to overcome with habit). The trunk space in this car is surprisingly small considering the back seats are somewhat impractical (unless children are the passengers), but I guess you could use the back seat as additional trunk space if need be.

Overall, the Lexus LC 500 is equal parts luxury and performance. While not quite a sportscar in speed and corners, the Lexus LC 500 is the best of both worlds. The LC 500 provides the same exhilaration as a sports coupe, yet it also provides the luxury and reliability of the Lexus brand, making it ideal for everyday life.

However, the $100,000 question remains, would I purchase this luxury sports car? An emphatic YES! From the exquisite design of the exterior to the ultimate luxurious cockpit interior, to the incredibly smooth drive, this Lexus LC 500 concept car was meant to live out your dreams and make them a reality.

Thank you to Lexus USA for pimping my ride and making fast and furious dreams come true!

Driving a sports car can make you feel powerful on the road, and Lexus car can sure make you feel that. I love the red suit, you look incredible. Totally boss babe vibes! Now I need to tell my hubby to get me a Lexus as a wedding gift 🙂
