Lexus unveils updated LC 500 plus Ultimate Edition model
Updates include an improved steering response and infotainment display
The Lexus LC 500 coupe and convertible have undergone further enhancements, encompassing various updates to the chassis and, notably, the infotainment system.
All new LC models now boast a modernised 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, sourced from other Lexus models.
This new system replaces the previous version controlled by Lexus' touchpad, bringing the GT more up to date with other Lexus vehicles in the company’s lineup.
Subtle adjustments to the chassis include refining the suspension setup and engine mounts, which Lexus says delivers improved steering response and grip.
The brake feel has been fine-tuned, and the software within the 10-speed automatic gearbox has been recalibrated.
Lexus will continue to offer both V8 and hybrid powertrain options, reserving the latter for the Coupe model.
V8-powered models, however, now include an Expert driver mode, that allows for complete disengagement of the traction and stability control systems.
In addition, a special edition called the Ultimate Edition will be introduced, featuring unique custom colour and trim elements.
Exclusive features include black trim elements surrounding the headlights, tail lights, grille, and rear bumper finishers, as well as the 21-inch wheels which are finished in a dark grey paint.
While pricing details for the 2024 LC 500 range have yet to be confirmed, the Ultimate Edition models will be priced at £116,000 for the coupe and £122,000 for the four convertibles.
