With its official launch last week, we can now bring you a video walk-around of the new, almost concept car-like Lexus LC 500, which arrived in Malaysia with a cool RM940,000 (on-the-road without insurance) price tag. This Luxury Coupe is all about the details, as you’ll see here.

A naturally-aspirated, Atkinson- and Otto-cycle 5.0 litre V8 is the sole engine choice here, mated to a 10-speed Direct Shift automatic gearbox driving the rear axle, which is also equipped with a limited-slip differential for the Malaysian market (optional in certain others). As you’ll surely hear in the video above, it sounds refreshingly vocal in an increasingly turbo-muffled world.

In some enthusiast circles, the wheels maketh the car, and the LC 500’s certainly look like they came straight off the LF-LC concept, with its 21-inch diameter and bespoke Bridgestone Potenza S001L tyres – L for Lexus. It even has supercar provenance; the imposing two-door Lexus is built in the same Motomachi factory in Japan as the Lexus LFA.

Hat-tips to that supercar, design-wise, include the movable digital instrumentation, and the door panel rivets that are shared with the V10 beast. As our man Hafriz Shah says, it looks like a million bucks yet you get change from a seven-figure sum – a bit of a bargain from that perspective isn’t it?
