Here's to riding into a brave new world at full speed

It's always exciting when a company sports a new direction — and in the case of Toyota's luxury brand Lexus, their first ever LC (luxury coupe) is one to symbolise a sign of the times.

First look at the coupe, and you'll immediately think sex on wheels — decked in crimson red (it's also available in 10 other colours), and complete with a rocking body of sleek curvature. The new LC also stays true to the brand's signature spindle grill, a uniquely-L shaped front grille synonymous of all other Lexus dream machines.

Adding yet another first to the brand, the Lexus LC debuts a 10-speed automatic transmission in its lineup, which executes shifts at speeds that rival any other dual-clutch transmission. The reformed system also delivers an improved throttle responsiveness, meaning fast-speed cruising with minimal effort on the engine. Seamless and seductively smooth with every drive.

Besides branching out of their comfort zone of roomy sedans and family SUVs, developing the Lexus LC also means cementing a fresh foundation for all future front engine and rear-wheel drive Lexus models. The brand new platform sees a lower centre of gravity, for better agility and driving pleasure, and as a benchmark for more alluring vehicle designs to come. Watch out world, an all-new Lexus generation is now upon us.
