Default Saw my 1st LC 500 on the road

Great looking car. Saw my first one in-person on Monday in Vail, CO on a beautiful afternoon. It was the "Infrared" color and is a very striking car, especially from the side. The driver was going around a round-about and then got onto the ramp to jump on the freeway. That sound....

They're pretty stunning, aren't they?

The other day I drove past my local Lexus dealer, craning my neck to see if they had any sitting out where I could see. No such luck. A short time later I was rewarded by seeing one on the road. I believe it was Caviar. Great presence on the road.

Great road presence and styling. It gives me hope that the new LS 500 will look better in-person than I'm expecting..! The LC is one of those cars that I think people would see from the side or back and think "wow, what is that?" The angles look a little harsh/aggressive in pictures but the car looked awesome in person.

For sure its a beautiful car, saw a few at the dealer when we were purchasing the RX. The brakes are really impressive.

It's an amazing car in person. We have a few at my dealership at the moment. It's the hottest car on the road around here and we can barely keep up with the demand.

I have been around 2 on the road and noticed the tail lights are flat. This shows constant reflections when the car is moving... Love the car but not a fan of the distracting tails.

Example:

Totally jealous. Last time I was getting service done I somewhat jokingly asked if I could go for a spin while waiting... Nah. Not VIP like that yet I suppose.

Outside of a dealership I've seen just two so far. Saw one in Atlanta when I was down visiting family, and it was in Caviar. Looks awesome in that color. I also saw one recently in KC in Smoky Granite Mica, which I thought was nice for showing off the car's lines. In the dealership, it was a white one with a tan interior - the interior's incredible!

I have yet to see one on the road anywhere in NYC and have received a bunch of emails from local dealers to come drive it, so not sure if there is much demand. I have seen a ton of S550/63 coupes lately though.

I felt like a celebrity when I drove one around the block?
