  1. Power for the LC500 special edition down to 464 DIN hp / 457 bhp according to the Lexus Europe and UK media sites. Another victim of the Euro 6d emissions rules.

    Potential Buyer

    Quoted horsepower on the Lexus Europe and Lexus UK media websites for the new yellow V8 special edition: 464 DIN hp/ 457 bhp. So like the RCF, the LC500 V8 is suffering a marginal loss of power under the new European 6d emissions rules.
  3. Possibly move this thread to the LC500 forum?

    Bye Bye Lexus

    Shame. Such a beautiful car.
  5. Carbon looks good with silver.
  6. I like the look of this and the interior looks impressive. A smaller version of the LS by the look of it. Pity about the lack of engine choice, but given Lexus is relatively speaking a niche product in Europe, not surprising. Given that the ES has always been priced below the GS in the US, it will be interesting to see whether the same will apply in the UK.
  7. New 4 cylinder hybrid engine giving 215 hp, F Sport version available, 3.5 V6 available in some European countries but not in UK. On sale in Europe in September and in UK in January 2019.
  8. ES300h here in January 2019 according to Lexus Stocport on twitter.
  9. You should have gone to Specsavers!
  10. Looks like a bargain. What would you get new for £14k?
  11. Doesn't the V8 LC500 have a louder exhaust?
  12. And on that note we (Linas included) await the formal unveiling of the ES later this month.
  13. Agree the Arteon is a very good car. More spacious than an A5 and approaching it in terms of quality. Also agree FWD is not an issue in regular driving.
  14.
