RIVAL IN THE MAR­KET

The Peak (Singapore) - - The Brief -

The spir­i­tual suc­ces­sor to the ground-break­ing 2010 Lexus LFA su­per­car has landed in the form of the Lexus LC. The large, lux­u­ri­ous coupe comes in two vari­ants, one with a nat­u­rally as­pi­rated V8 en­gine ready to set your adrenalin glands pump­ing with a 0-100 of 4.7sec, and the other, a hy­brid af­fair tai­lored for fuel econ­omy and pleas­ant cruis­ing.

Both sport the same out­landish Lexus aes­thetic: that dom­i­nant and spin­dled front grille, a lean mid-waist and an as­tound­ingly wide rear track that makes the ex­otic coupe ap­pear even more in­tim­i­dat­ing.

On the in­side, ex­pect the stan­dard Lexus bevy of switches and but­tons, and a much im­proved Re­mote Touch In­ter­face that al­lows you to in­ter­act with the screen and sat­nav. Opt for the Sport and Sport+ mod­els should you want to en­joy al­can­tar­a­clad seats with plenty of legroom. Is this the sporty com­peti­tor the BMW 6 Se­ries needed? We cer­tainly think so. 33 Leng Kee Road. Tel: 6631-1388.
