Normally not a fan of 100k cars but Lexus appears (to me) to have nailed everything about this thing except the front.

Article, impressions, and more pictures here.

Also "Experience Amazing"? Seriously Lexus?

Now please depreciate like a 10 year old S Class so I can AimGain its front end and cruise around in luxury.

That's the best looking Lexus nose in a decade.

I guess, if you want to set a really low bar.

Not a fan of the "Predator" look Lexus has been using for a while. It's ok on some of their cars, and butt ugly on others. I'd say it falls somewhere in between on the LC500.

Everyone serms to be in an ugly contest. The 60s brought us beautiful cars, right now almost everything is ugly. Thank God for Ferrari and Maserati.

I didn't say it was a good looking nose. I said it was the best looking Lexus nose in a decade.

I think they nailed the front as well. So many luxury cars today lack presence, and the LC500 has it in spades. In person, there's nothing you can really mistake it for, and it's way more imposing than an S550 Coupe or M6. The new Lexuses look okay in photos, but you have to see them in person and get up close to appreciate the design.

Everyone whines about unoriginal design, then when something different comes out ...

I don't want to get up close to one. I'd rather 'appreciate it' from as far away as possible.

I think that awful grill works better here than anywhere else they've used it, but the rest of the car is so pretty that it seems like there were better designs they could've used up front.

overall, though, it is an attractive auto. Body makes up for the face situation.

Which sets a bar so low they'd have to tunnel under it.

I don't. I would rather have "simple but handsome" 10 to 1 over "garish but different".

If they got rid of the top of the grille, from the bottom of the badge and up, if they made that sheet metal it would look good. LFA good. Basically I'm saying they should have just made this a clone of an LFA.

You know there's a bumper bar behind that grille, if they let that show it would break up the predator face in a good way.
