Even if Lexus is considered one of the most luxurious brands in the world, the carmaker also builds extremely powerful models to compete against the top in the branch, and the LC 500 in its new clothing is absolutely mind-blowing.

Just by looking at the spy video with the upcoming test mule undergoing some rough cornering around the Ring, you get a feel of excitement that, once more, the Japanese builder has done its best in creating a genuine sports car.

By the way it also sounds, the new Lexus LC 500 promises to deliver immense power, depicting a real wild 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine, already reported to come with 351 kW and 530 Nm of torque. This would be the same one seen on the present GS F and RC F, with some slight mods in power.

What is more exciting about the car when finally getting behind the wheels, is the new ten-speed automatic transmission, the same one that the carmaker launched it in 2008 and that was first seen as an eight-speeder on the IS F.

A few have ever experienced driving a sports car with a ten-speed automatic transmission and by the sounds of this looker, it sure is a fast changer and extremely potent in delivering an impressive high-tempo driving, also inceasing the driving capabilities.

As this very moment, it is impossible to foresee the type of performance and reveal other features with the model, but according to the carmaker, it will be released on the market somewhere next year, with prices rumored to range around $200,000. Until further news, just take a look at the spy video below and tell us what you think about its sheer power!
