2018 Lexus LC 500, 2016 Detroit Auto ShowEnlarge Photo
Yesterday was the opening day of the 2016 Detroit Auto Show and Lexus’ new flagship coupe, the LC, looks like it's already stolen the show. The car is the production version of 2012’s LF-LC concept, and right now there’s just one variant, the LC 500, which packs a 467-horsepower V-8.
The LC wasn’t the only coupe from a Japanese firm that made its debut in Detroit. Infiniti had its new Q60, which will come onto the market late in the summer with three powertrain choices. The most potent is a twin-turbocharged V-6 good for 400 hp.
Aston Martin didn’t have any major announcements for the show but the automaker has confirmed a new twin-turbocharged V-12 engine will be offered this year. The engine is expected to make its debut in the DB9-replacing DB11 grand tourer due out in the coming months.
You'll find all of these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.
