Lexus Malaysia, a division of UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd, has officially launched the all-new Lexus LC 500 in the Malaysian market. The new flagship luxury coupe of the Lexus model range is a significant illustration of Lexus’ dedication to create cars with exciting, emotional designs and exhilarating performance.
The LC takes its place as the flagship model of the high-performance Lexus range, alongside the LS which is the flagship of the sedan range. Inspired by the LF-LC concept car displayed in 2012, development of the LC was inspired and guided by Akio Toyoda, Toyota Motor Corporation’s President, who also personally tested prototypes.
For the Malaysian market, Lexus Malaysia offers the LC 500 variant which has a 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine that generates maximum power of 470 ps (351 kW) and 540 Nm of torque. It is paired with a newly developed close-ratio Direct Shift 10-speed automatic transmission – a first for a premium passenger car.
Priced from RM940,000 (excluding insurance), the LC 500 is available with a choice of 11 exterior colours and 3 interior colour themes. Each LC 500 comes with warranty coverage for 5 years with unlimited mileage and during the first 5 years or 100,000 kms (whichever comes first), scheduled servicing is provided free of charge to owners.
Complete aftersales support is available at seven authorised Lexus service centres located in Mutiara Damansara and Sg. Besi in the Klang Valley, Ipoh, Johor, Melaka, Penang and Kuching. These service centres have the necessary diagnostic equipment for the LC as well as technicians who have been specially trained on the mode
