Video WTF Happened to the Lexus LC500?

Video ✅ The Lexus LC500 is an INCREDIBLE car. It sounds amazing, drives smooth, has a great gearbox, and looks GORGEOUS. However the poor Lexus LC500 was overshadowed by its competitors and simply wasn’t known to many. Considered a mix of the Toyota FT-1 concept, Lexus LFA tuning, and RCF design cues – this car is an underrated beast. Today we hop in this gorgeous bagged and wrapped LC500 with a glorious full exhaust. So was the LC500 worth the money compared to its rivals? Let’s talk about it. ✅ WTF Happened to the Lexus LC500?

video well ladies and gentlemen we’re in
3:20
one of the most put your seat belt on Oh
3:23
I thought this was my seatbelt
3:26
while he’s doing that can you introduce
3:28
yourself hey my name is Ken Lee with Ken
3:31
Lee without you that’s right and that’s
3:33
also YouTube channel Yep this car at
3:35
Formula Drift really caught my eye
3:36
because you never see people truly
3:39
appreciate the LC right now and modify
3:41
them and when I saw this and I was like
3:43
with that long body the Elsie has
3:45
bagging it just made it look spectacular
3:48
and also the color of the wheels the
3:51
color of the wrap I was like that’s
3:52
fantastic so basically you’re one of the
3:55
only people in the country who’s really
3:57
messed with these would you say so I say
3:58
so yeah I appreciate it yeah no so I
4:01
kept coming back to the car trying to
4:02
find you and you never were there so LC
4:05
500 5 liter V8 almost 500 crank
4:08
horsepower like 480 something along
4:10
those lines and like you said the LFA
4:13
team essentially Tunes this one that’s
4:15
why when you drive the Lexus RCF or any
4:18
of the sedans that have the five liter
4:20
in that it feels completely different
4:22
and sounds different too
4:26
foreign so far how is your ownership
4:29
experience been in this car it’s been
4:31
amazing I mean like I said like first
4:33
off of course Lexus they have best
4:35
quality and service at the dealerships
4:37
oh and yeah the dealership they have it
4:38
going on so I mean as funny as it sounds
4:41
it’s like you only go see it when you
4:42
buy it and you want to go see it again
4:43
it’s only time when you buy it that’s it
4:45
like there’s no returning it really it’s
4:47
it’s awesome customer service the car is
4:49
fantastic I mean like I said it’s all
4:50
Motors so there’s not much you don’t
4:53
need to do yourself I mean everything
4:54
you can do is like a turn of a ratchet
4:57
you know like all you have to do yeah
4:58
plus I’m not gonna lie right now it’s
5:00
hot as hell out today and these cooled
5:03
seats I didn’t really use them that much
5:04
when I drove it last time but it’s like
5:06
a legit fan like my shirt is moving it
5:10
is so beefy but also the one I drove at
5:13
the black interior this interior
5:15
honestly I’m not usually a big colored
5:17
or beige or not beige excuse me tan
5:19
interior but with your color contrast
5:21
green it’s chef’s kiss yes so good and
5:26
it even shows how good materials were
5:28
and that’s what I agree like when you go
5:30
with the black interior I feel like it
5:31
hides a lot of the details it does but
5:33
the there may be right now my favorite
5:36
door panels in production because
5:38
they’re like this organic looking
5:40
beautiful like the wind you know it
5:42
shapes the door and it’s around the same
5:45
price as the RCF track Edition so if you
5:47
don’t care about having two doors
5:49
correct like I I tell people this all
5:51
the time that it’s the most underrated
5:53
sporty car out right now I would
5:55
arguably like might be sacrilege I would
5:58
take this over like a competitor like an
5:59
Aston Martin like I just Oh I thought
6:01
about it trust me when I went to go
6:03
purchase it I thought about it because
6:04
like I said there’s so much in this
6:06
price range that could overdo it or
6:08
underdo it oh man it’s it’s what do you
6:11
do what do you keep that will stand the
6:13
width of time oops yeah oh Alexis no way
6:16
and not to mention your Katana shifter
6:19
that threw me for a loop for a second
6:21
actually the reason why I did it because
6:23
I didn’t want to mess up the regular OEM
6:27
onto it because that is normally the
6:29
first thing I damage yeah really yes
6:32
everything is a shift knob
6:40
this is my theory my theory is we get
6:42
the concept car of the ft-1 yes right we
6:45
all drool over it and we hope the ft-1
6:47
we don’t get the ft-1 but they released
6:50
this nearly at the same time as the
6:52
Supra yeah people are so distracted by
6:54
the Supra that the car that is more like
6:57
the ST1 gets overshadowed by the Supra
7:00
but to be fair you know this is more
7:01
expensive it’s it’s out of the supers
7:03
price range but don’t be wrong super as
7:06
expensive as it is yeah it’s roomy it’s
7:08
comfortable like it’s easy it’s just
7:11
great great Grand Touring Car Plus you
7:14
have this lion snarl of the V8 yeah
7:18
foreign
7:23
I love when you rev this thing out it
7:25
just sounds so good the color is
7:26
dedicated to your dad which I think is
7:28
super cool yeah
7:31
um but if you want to kind of touch base
7:32
on that real quick yeah if you like no I
7:34
don’t mind I don’t mind my life is about
7:36
family as well and of course with
7:38
everything with friends and family like
7:40
my father this year uh he would have
7:42
been 68 years old and um in February he
7:45
passed away to covid this color was my
7:48
dad’s first luxury car that he had and I
7:51
had him pick out whatever he wanted to
7:52
pick out and I dedicated the color to my
7:54
dad yeah he was like that’s the one
7:56
that’s the one and my dad’s my hero so I
7:58
wrapped it myself it took me literally
8:00
all up until the funeral until uh oh wow
8:03
yeah I got done but um I did every panel
8:06
and um thought of my dad so that’s
8:08
amazing it really was just about
8:09
timelessness and the fact that my dad is
8:11
my hero so it means a lot that’s amazing
8:13
I mean not to mention
8:16
he chose a good color you know like you
8:18
know at least it was like oh I’m
8:20
honoring my dad but uh it’s a tacky
8:23
color but you’re not gonna do it anyway
8:24
it’s hyper pink that’s right the bronze
8:27
yeah
8:28
it gave it a natural the the way I was
8:30
going for it was just a natural Earth
8:32
Tone like mother nature like something
8:34
where you blend it and especially right
8:35
down the atmosphere oh it’s beautiful
8:36
perfect little compact headlights with
8:40
the little projectors it’s the smallest
8:42
on the market it is the most advanced
8:44
right now on the market because actually
8:45
inside of them as you turn it’s not nice
8:48
it turns with you it’s like a BMW really
8:50
work yes yeah really it’s just they have
8:54
done so much they could in all the years
8:56
to put what they can in this car that a
8:58
lot of it is just underlooked it just
9:00
overlooked and they don’t even talk
9:01
about a lot of the little emotions no
9:04
with everything you can do with the car
9:05
it’s amazing and right now it’s ironic
9:08
you’re on bags you know it feels you
9:11
know what’s really interesting these
9:13
bags are set up to the point where I
9:15
forgot we were on which is good that’s a
9:18
compliment because you know 10 plus
9:20
years ago like if you drove a car in
9:22
bags you’re going wow like you’re all
9:24
over the place and then you wanna do
9:25
manual yeah let’s do it
9:29
opens up
9:32
I love that pop
9:36
it’s just smooth as glass yes
9:40
like butter
9:43
I think my favorite though in the LC
9:45
when you do like a 3 4 throttle it gets
9:49
for some reason it has this snarl to it
9:54
[Applause]
10:10
and it’s funny too is it’s a quick car
10:14
it feels good it feels confident you
10:17
never feel like you’re in trouble in
10:18
this car you just because you’re just
10:20
you have a fan on your back keeps doing
10:23
that tranquil mindset you know you know
10:25
what you don’t just Vibes you don’t you
10:26
don’t need to drive faster than 911 you
10:28
don’t need to do track times it’s
10:30
honestly like just a livable enjoyable
10:32
car I actually drove this on Road
10:34
Atlanta oh recently drove this on Road
10:36
Atlanta and at a track in Texas recently
10:39
and it did great you know like even with
10:42
how big it is you just it kind of dwarfs
10:44
when you’re on track
10:45
oh I could do that all day
10:50
and it’s sad that this thing’s going
10:52
away this v8’s going away it’s going
10:54
away but
10:55
rumor has it they’re you know making
10:57
another one that’s different lcf yeah
11:00
maybe here we go I got the Chimes going
11:03
around the corner telling me I’m doing a
11:05
good job also the pack
11:07
the tattoo stage kind of click on it
11:09
like you’ll be half the way through and
11:11
then it’s like oh you went Full Throttle
11:13
re-engage the pedal
11:17
like it’s so easy God damn
11:23
it’s nice when you’re in a new car
11:25
because sometimes you get a car and
11:27
you’re like they didn’t change the pads
11:29
did they are we gonna make it yeah are
11:31
we gonna make it
11:36
I saw you reaching I was reaching for
11:38
the uh the oh crap hand no I was waiting
11:40
for the window
11:45
at the end of the day like I wanted to
11:47
spend more time driving it than it
11:49
acting at the shop because is honestly
11:52
like if I would have got a GTR and it’s
11:54
like you’re gonna be so tempted to just
11:56
go
11:57
it comes with the license when you when
12:00
you get that car it’s like you’re just
12:02
gonna have to heavily modify great let’s
12:03
go 1500 yeah exactly literally and then
12:06
and then after a while you forget the
12:07
emotion like you know yeah I want to be
12:09
able to really feel the car enjoy the
12:12
car I’ll never you’ll never get that set
12:14
yeah exactly V8 can’t get it out of the
12:17
V6 and you know like I said it’s just I
12:20
feel something like in the future and I
12:22
always look into the future and it’s
12:23
like this is something that will be
12:26
looked back on and be like why did
12:28
