Lexus LC 500 coupe (2017 - )

The LC is an eye-catching, beautifully made coupe that has different characters depending on which version you go for. The hybrid is a great cruiser and ticks plenty of eco boxes, but it’s not particularly engaging to drive. The V8 model, though, is a really solid touring sports car, with great performance and handling. A new convertible version offers further appeal.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Lexus hopes customers for the LC will be drawn from sports cars like the Porsche 911, as well as other GTs like the BMW 8 Series. Comparing a top-spec LC 500 Sport+ (which is likely to be the biggest seller) to those rivals reflects well on Lexus. It costs several grand more to buy than a BMW M850i, but thanks to strong resale values will cost about the same to run over three years. It’ll also hold its value much better than higher end coupes that customers may consider, such as the S-Class Coupe, which is much more expensive to buy.

A Porsche 911 Carrera S with an automatic gearbox is also slightly pricier, and although you’ll save a lot in fuel with the Porsche, the resale values of the Lexus make it cheaper to run long-term. It’s a similar story with the LC 500h, which is priced exactly the same as the V8 car. There aren’t any other hybrids of this type, and its very strong resale values mean it’s cheaper to run long-term than a BMW 840d, even though the entry-level LC 500h is considerably more expensive to buy.
