Modified Lexus LC 500 Boasts 525 hp and More

This Lexus sports coupe is not even for sale and tuners are making it faster.

You won’t find the Lexus LC 500 performance coupe on this month'sLexus U.S sales report, but there will be one at the SEMA show, and it is already modified. Not wasting any time jumping in to tune the LC 500, Gordon Ting and Beyond Marketing secured a pre-production version of the LC 500. The group modified almost every aspect of the LC 500 making it faster and better looking.

The engine displacement has been increased to 5.6-liters instead of the stock 5.0-liters. The cylinders were bored out to 99.5mm (as compared to 94mm). The result was an increase from the stock 471 hp to 525. Magnus Ohlaker, a builder with 20 years of experience with F1 and Indycar engines did the work at Club DSPORT’s facility.

Lexus says that Signature Autobody wrapped the car in Avery Dennison Gloss Yellow wrap. The body is enhanced with an Artisan Spirit Custom Lexus LC Kit, including wider fender flares, a front diffuser, side skirts, rear diffuser and rear wing. The suspension was enhanced with a KW Hydraulic Lift System with a height adjustable spring kit. The LC 500 also got 22” HRE P101 satin charcoal wheels with Pirelli P Zero Nero Tires.
