LC500 & Lexus V8s

Nice vid on LC500 ownership by Savage Geese.

With a GSF in the family, I'm a huge fan of the F cars and the Lexus V8. And that LC is arguably one of the best looking cars out there, and it's actually attainable.

The LC500 is awesome, probably best Lexus ever made (except super rare LFA of course).

The LC500 is pretty fucking sick. I don’t love the exterior design that much. I feel like the entire lexus line up looks so much a like that it makes that car look a generic. But to listen to them talk about the driving experience sounds amazing. I think It would make for a great GT car.

lc500 is a very nice car. i dont think i've heard one bad review of it. but its a very niche market. Its not really a sports car being 4000+ pounds. And its only got space for 2 adults being a daily driver. You'd ideally want it in a 3 car setup if you had a family. But if you don't have kids it could work in a 2 car setup. i've been on the fence about trading my f80 for one.

It's not a sports car at all, you should go into thinking it's more of an SL or 8 Series competitor than say a 911 IMHO. I enjoyed many things about it when I test drove it, but it's no faster or more exciting than my 13 year old E92 M3. And for that price, even used, I expect a little more. It would make a great daily if you're OK with 2 seats though!

You are correct, I think in a 3 car fleet, an LC500 convertible with a sports car and something practical would be really cool.

Writing as an owner of a 2021 lc500 convertible, I don’t recommend anyone getting this as their only car. Not if you are into getting the most amount of speed for your money. You will be wanting the crazy speed that the other competitors in this price range offer. However, as a 2nd or 3rd car, it’s wonderful! Outside of bad weather, this is my daily driver and it blends practicality, performance, exclusivity, and fun all together very well.

I really wish I could convince myself to buy an LC500, I love that car so much. But as someone who prefers to just have one car and likes track days, I can't make it make sense. Maybe an RCF would be a good compromise

It seems like it would be a great only car if one doesn't care about having the sharpest handling or quickest car. It seems fast enough, reliable, great NVH, beautiful styling, comfortable, etc. I don't see what it is missing as an only car besides extra doors.
