Park Place Lexus Plano unveils new LC500 — supports TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation.
With hundreds of people gathered at Park Place Lexus Plano recently for the reveal of the 2018 Lexus LC500, the air was buzzing with excitement as guests eagerly awaited the reveal of Lexus’ latest engineering marvel.
Guests dined on cuisine from the Clutch Bar and Restaurant and sipped on cocktails from Monkey Shoulder Whisky and Reyka Vodka as well as crafted sips from Concrete Cowboy, opening soon in Frisco at The Star. There was a special tasting of The Balvenie, the only single malt that is still handcrafted in the traditional manner. While listening to DJ Andre’, guests enjoyed House of Cigars hand-rolled cigars while The Gents Place offered shoe shines. For racing aficionados, taking the controls of the newest racing simulator was a fun opportunity to rev their engines.
Park Place Lexus Plano, a generous corporate partner, presented a check to TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation for nearly $10,000 in support of the organization’s effort to fund childhood cancer research.
As time approached to unveil the car, an urban street dancer gave a special performance before pulling back the cover to reveal the LC500’s craftsmanship.
While the new 2018 Lexus LC500 is a luxury coupe, the “LC” actually stands for “Lexus Challenge.” It’s important to note because Lexus Master Driver Akio Toyoda gave the design team the challenge that the word “boring” and “Lexus” should never again appear in the same sentence. After the introduction of the LC500, it’s a safe bet that will never again happen.
The LC500 has been engineered from the ground up to be an exciting, luxury grand-touring vehicle… quick and responsive with an angry, guttural sound that will turn heads as your blow past the competition. But refined with plush leather seats that envelop you in luxury. All packaged with the unparalleled reliability upon which Lexus has built its brand.
Lexus states this is the stiffest car they’ve ever made, including the LFA. Built with lightweight aluminum panels and carbon fiber, the LC500 is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.0 Liter V8 with a new Aisin 10-speed automatic transmission to deftly move the low, aggressive sportster tight into curves and hug the hills with maximum response and superb comfort. The LC 500’s ample 467 horsepower/389 lb.-ft. of torque are civilized by six-piston front and four-piston rear brake calipers. In layman’s terms: this beautiful beast leaps from 0-to-60 mph in under 4.5 seconds. And you look … and feel… marvelous while doing it.
The LC 500 starts at $92,995, and the LC 500h (hybrid model) $97,505. Standard equipment on both models include adaptive suspension, 20-inch forged alloy wheels, run-flat tires, a glass-panel roof, intelligent high-beam LED headlights, LED taillights, a 12-speaker Pioneer surround sound system, navigation, and the Lexus Safety System+ consisting of pre-collision warning/auto braking with pedestrian detection, all-speed cruise control, and lane-departure warning. An optional Mark Levinson Audio System is available, featuring 13 speakers and an 11-channel amplifier to drive 915 watts of silky smooth sound.
