Lexus has waded into new luxury waters by unveiling the LC 500 at the North American International Auto Show.

The car is the continuation of the evolution of Lexus. It is the production version of the LF-LC concept that was unveiled at the 2012 auto show.

“The LC 500 has been an important product for Lexus and me personally,” said Akio Toyoda, Chief Branding Officer and Master Driver for Lexus in a news release. “A few years ago, we decided to guide the future of the brand with products that had more passion and distinction in the luxury market. This flagship luxury coupe’s proportions, stunning design and performance make a strong statement about our brand’s emotional direction and will grow the Lexus luxury appeal globally.”
