Lexus LC 500 Gets Performance Boost Ahead of 2017 Release

Lexus LC 500 Engine Boost

Lexus LC chief engineer Koji Sato announced at a Pebble Beach event yesterday that improvements to the coupe’s intake and exhaust have boosted the 5.0L V8 engine to 471 horsepower and 398lb-ft of torque.

An improvement of 4 horsepower & 9lb-ft of torque may seem like a minor performance upgrade, but the fact Lexus engineers are continuing to refine the LC is a powerful message — very impressed by this news.
