2018 Lexus LC CoupeLexus' flagship model, the LC luxurious coupe has proven itself worthy and it is named as one of the top three performance vehicles in Australia. A prestigious jury at "Australia's Best Driver's Car" award have claimed that this particular model features stand-out drivetrain system and incredible advanced gadgets.

What has done a special impact on judges' choice was the exquisite metal form of the Yamaha-tuned 5.0-liter V8 power unit that is paired to an exclusive 10-speed automatic gearbox and produces the massive 470hp (351kW) and 540Nm of total power output.

Also, there was one more thing that has helped the LX to achieve such recognition – it is fine-tuned and especially geared with numerous engineering technologies that altogether aid both the vehicle and driver to deal easily with technically challenging racetracks and quick quarter-mile drags. Sweet, isn't it?

Some of these engineering improvements include on-track performance test that showcased incredible stability and has highlighted the credentials of the rear-drive chassis and vehicle's optimal weight distribution. LC also impressed both jury and enthusiasts with crisp steering with neat feedback and satisfactory overall feeling of control.
