Lexus is a luxury vehicle division of Japanese car maker Toyota and their LC500 redefines luxury and sportiness together. It would be a great car in any collection even in a mini garage. AUTOart released its 1:18 model last year and they sold out in no time. Now its the turn of Kyosho to cash in on this sexy Lexus LC500. This 1:18 scale LC500 will be released in Samurai Series, which is a resin all sealed models that are light on pocket and high on details.
As per the pics from Kyosho’s site, the exterior body lines are top class and the paint quality look exceptional. The grill details looks realistic and the headlamps optics looks sharp. The model comes with accurate stance and the ride height is law as is the real Lexus LC500.
This Lexus LC500 comes in two colors, white and red. For me the red looks more classy and looks more desirable, the chrome detailing pop a bit more in this color as opposed to the white. But the white gives that elegant sporty look and works in most classy collection.
This Lexus LC500 comes with full closed windows but the interiors are well finished with a bright lit center screen with a Lexus logo in it. The white car comes with all black interior and aluminium inserts. The red car comes with beige interior, which contrasts the body color quite well.
The wheels and the alloy details looks great for a pre production and this model is almost ready for main stream production and should hit retailer soon. The rear end details also looks perfect, the logo looks clean. The chrome tipped exhaust also looks sleek.
As per the Kyosho’s store this is priced at ¥15,000(USD.135), which is a good value for money. This Lexus LC500 works well for collector who wants a quality scale model and don’t mind opening features. Are you that one? If yes go for it. Till next time. Ciao!!
