World's First Customized Lexus LC 500 Flaunts Styling and Performance Tweaks at SEMA
The stock 471 hp 5.0-liter V8 has grown into a 5.6-liter with 525 hp
The Lexus LC 500 has not arrived in dealerships yet, but that hasn't stopped aftermarket specialists Gordon Ting/Beyond Marketing from developing a customized version.
Unveiled at the SEMA Show, the Japanese luxury coupe has received a racy aerodynamic kit, a new interior executed by Evasive Motorsports, as well as performance tweaks of the suspension, brakes, wheels, tires, and engine.

Besides the increased displacement, engineers increased the cylinder bore to 99.5 mm and fitted custom CP Pistons and Carrillo connecting rods engineered to perform up to 9,000 rpm.
The body of the LC 500 features a striking gloss yellow wrap as well as aero upgrades consisting of custom fender flares, a front diffuser, side skirts, a rear diffuser and rear wing.
The KW suspension features a Hydraulic Lift System with a height adjustable spring kit, while the LC 500 rides on 22-inch HRE P101 wheels in satin charcoal with Pirelli P Zero Nero Tires. The carbon fiber Sparco race seats and safety cage are the highlights of the GT3 spec race interior.
The 2017 Lexus LC 500 production model goes on sale in North America in spring 2017.
