Listen to how the V8 of the Lexus LC500 “lights up” a carpark


We love the Lexus LC500; we love it so much that we featured it in our AutoBuzz Best Car’s of Malaysia video last year. Where do we even begin – it looks absolutely stunning, it’s as swanky as a luxury superyatch and most of all, it sounds thunderous.

We may have drooled over the Radiant Red on the Lexus LC500, also featured in GC Mah’s full review video, it’s hard to not be swayed by this alluring Naples Yellow, our new favourite colour for the 470 hp grand tourer.

In the video you’ll see the Lexus LC500 doing multiple 0 to 100 km/h runs inside an empty car park, a feat it achieves in just 4.4 seconds and if you dare, you’d find the top speed capped at 270 km/h.

Power comes from a 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V8 – good for 540 Nm of torque – mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Yes, 10.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
