2014-17 Lexus GS F, LC500, RC F recalled for fuel pump fix

The V8 Lexus GS F, LC500 and RC F have been recalled this week, over concerns a faulty fuel pump could cause a fuel leak. Lexus says affected vehicles are fitted with two high-pressure fuel pumps, one of which could be susceptible to damage from fuel pressure resonance that occurs "under specific operating conditions"...

Lexus LC Convertible, LC F on the way - report

Lexus has reportedly signed off on a convertible version of the LC, while an LC F performance hero also looks set for production in the coming years. According to a new article by the UK's Auto Express, internal sources claim the drop-top LC has already been approved, while the 'F'-branded version is looking likely for production as well...

Touring Toyota's marvellous Motomachi and Lexus LC production

I've seen my share of vehicle manufacturing facilities, and many are alike. Some are more heavily roboticised than others, many are remarkably pristine environments, most are sprawling sites best traversed by buggy, and each runs to a rigorous regimen. Not surprisingly, Toyota's Motomachi plant is all of these things...

Lexus prepares its fleet for SEMA

Lexus has unveiled its hotted-up cars ahead of the SEMA show in Las Vegas. Along with a trio of LC500 coupes, the Japanese manufacturer will show a worked-over take on its luxury flagship, the LS F Sport. The first car is actually going to be sold in the USA, in a departure from the usual pie-in-the-sky madness on show at SEMA...

Lexus Australia has today announced pricing and specification of its LC500 and LC500h flagship sports cars, with both models coming in at $190,000 plus associated on-road costs.

Lexus LC500 – same V8 engine, more torque, better sound

When the Lexus LC500 touches down on local shores in May, buyers will be able to choose between two engines; a 5.0-litre V8 and a 3.5-litre petrol/electric hybrid. The high-revving V8 is also found in Lexus’ two other performance models; the RC F coupe and GS F sedan...

Lexus LC500: 'The most rigid chassis Lexus has ever built'

Not only is the Lexus LC500 coupe the first car to be developed on the marque’s new front engine/rear-wheel drive platform, dubbed ‘Global Architecture – Luxury’, it’s also the most torsionally rigid production car ever produced by the luxury Japanese marque. That makes it 60 per cent more rigid than the GS performance sedan, and stiffer even that the highly-prized, limited-build LFA supercar...

2017 Lexus LC 500 Australian details confirmed ahead of May launch

The all-new 2017 Lexus LC flagship coupe is expected to arrive in local showrooms from May, with a choice of two drivetrains. Visually, the two variants are largely identical, bar the badging, but under the bonnet these coupes are two entirely different propositions. The performance heart of the LC500 is Lexus’s proven naturally aspirated 5...

Lexus LC 500 racer to replace RC F in Japan's Super GT series

Lexus has revealed its new race car based on the upcoming LC500 coupe, ahead of the road car’s launch next year. The LC500 race car will make its competition debut in the Japanese Super GT500 series in 2017, replacing the current RC F race car...

Lexus LC detailed, on sale first half of 2017

Koji Sato, the chief engineer of the Lexus LC, has described the company's new coupe as "possibly the greatest challenge since Lexus created the original LS". Part of this comes down to developing an all-new platform. In all, around 4000 people were involved in developing the LC. According to Sato, "The car and a completely new platform was delivered 12 months faster than the usual process"...

Lexus LC500 vs Lexus LF-LC Concept: Styling Faceoff

When a new model begins life as an exaggerated and highly stylised sketch, it's no stretch to imagine that the look of the later physical concept will bend a few less laws of physics. And, of course, the final road-going production model that follows - if production is confirmed at all - will usually do away with the concept's most awe-inspiring aspects...
