Uncommon for most carmakers, there are plenty of the details carried over from the concept for the production model. It is easier for Lexus to build the production car from the concept as the carmaker has become much more insistent with its designs recently. All part of the original concept including the practical air intakes, extensive hood, the L-shaped daytime running lamps, huge spindle grille, the triple-LED headlights, and dramatic backside is taken to the LC 500 but with slight restyling. The concept’s looks are mostly retained. Aside from the jam-packed luxury coupe category, there are plenty of new tech, tons of premium materials, and sufficient sportiness inside the LC 500’s cabin. The interior features Alcantara and leather seat cover, the steering wheel with magnesium alloy paddle shifters, true audiophiles with an optional Pioneer system and a Mark Levinson premium audio system.
