2020 Lexus LC500 Carbon is the most desirable Lexus to be produced in a long time. A mighty V8 engine that sounds like a well tuned performance car and its luxurious interior are the highlights of this sharp looking trailblazer.
Built for the rich and famous of the city, the LC500 Carbon accelerates on command but also has the ability to deliver good fuel economy when driven on the eco friendly mode. A wise choice if you plan to drive the car on an everyday basis.
The drive mode of choice for me however, is the Sport S+. Shifting the vehicle in this mode changes almost everything about the drive. Engine sounds rhythmically loud & crisp, the steering wheel becomes a bit stiff and the transmission holds the lower gears down for longer.
Straight line acceleration is good and the car is fun to drive on corners. There is minimal body roll and the car is nearly perfectly balanced.
0-100 km per hour acceleration is 4.4 seconds which is a tad bit slower that the cars of its class but its excellent handling in the corners makes up for the time lost.

The 2020 LC500 is a stunning example of modern day angular design fused with sleek bodywork and subtle details that makes its exterior styling all eye catching and head turning.
While you can’t get your eyes off the long sloping curvy hood and the bold grill, the LC500 highlights include carbon fiber front and rear spoilers and 21 inch forged alloy wheels to complete the powerful look.
Without a doubt, one of the most luxurious interiors you’ll experience. The LC500 cabin is mostly suede and accentuated with premium metals.
The only thing that possibly needs improvement is the complexed infotainment system and a small trunk.
