525-hp Custom-Designed Lexus LC 500 Debuted at SEMA

Much more yellow! Meet the first world’s Lexus LC 500 coupe in the custom treatment! It is all about aerodynamics and performance; it is definitely luxurious and simply more powerful as well! This bright black-trimmed beastie in a Gloss Yellow wrapping was inspired by the glorious LC500 Super GT racer and smartly modified by Gordon Ting and Beyond Marketing tuners.  The SEMA-2016 LC 500 newcomer features an upgraded suspension, an Artisan Spirit custom body kit, a boosted aerodynamic body and an enlarged 5.6-litre V8 engine version making 525 horsepower compared to the 5.0-litre V8 variant for the standard LC 500 spitting out 471 ponies. We have to hand it to Magnus Ohlaker, for performing the brilliant engine work.

In addition to its enlarged engine, the custom-designed LC 500 also gets Brembo brakes, uprated 22-inch HRE P101 wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Nero rubber, and a KW Suspension kit. Due to the Artisan Spirit kit, the LC 500 features a rear wing and a diffuser, custom side skirts and fender flares on the outside. Inside the coupe, customers would enjoy an Evasive Motorsports interior with Sparco race-styled carbon fibre seats and GT3-spec safety cage. The upcoming Lexus is expected to hit showrooms in 2017, along with plenty of its custom components.
