Lexus coupe to de­but at fes­ti­val

Rutherglen Reformer - - Drive time extra -

The Lexus LC lux­ury coupe will make its UK de­but at the Good­wood Fes­ti­val of Speed later this month.

Un­veiled to the world at the Detroit Mo­tor Show ear­lier this year, the Lexus LC will take pride of place as a dis­play on Lexus’s stand but will also be driven up Good­wood’s fa­mous hill­climb course by a trio of in­ter­na­tional rac­ing driv­ers – Mike Con­way, Scott Pruett and ex-F1 driver Alex Wurz.

The driv­ers will demon­strate a V8-pow­ered LC 500 ex­am­ple of the new flag­ship coupe in the ‘First Glance’ cat­e­gory on the hill.

The car, which goes on sale next spring, will of­fi­cially make its UK bow as a static dis­play on preview day of Thurs­day, June 23, mean­ing vis­i­tors will get a sneak preview of the car be­fore the crowds de­scend on the Good­wood es­tate for the main Fes­ti­val week­end.

The Fes­ti­val runs from June 23- 26 and ticket info is avail­able via www. good­wood.com/tick­ets
