When the Lexus LC first went on sale, it was generally agreed to be a very attractive, thrilling design — with a price to match. The LC starts around $94,000, but most examples are optioned well above the $100,000 price point, putting its exciting look — and thrilling V8 powertrains — well out of the reach of most enthusiasts.
But if you lust after an LC, get ready: it’s coming down fast.
The LC came out for the 2018 model year — and in spite of the fact that it’s essentially just one year old, used LC models have already become very easy to find for under $80,000, which is usually around $40,000 off the original sticker price. The cheapest used LC 500 listed for sale on Autotrader is offered for $70,570, suggesting the LC will soon break the $70,000 barrier and plunge into the 60s — likely with pressure from the 2020 model, when it debuts.
Obviously, the $75,000 price range is still big money — but it’s also big depreciation, with a drop of more than $40,000 from original sticker prices. And the more important thing is that the LC still has a ways to fall, and it seems to be coming down fast — and that’s good news for enthusiasts who have always been excited about the coupe’s cool design and big power, but can’t quite afford to buy one.
I don’t necessarily think the LC is a grand bargain for budget-minded car enthusiasts just yet — but in a few years, it’ll probably get down to $50,000 or less. When that happens, it’ll be hard to ignore the fact that the LC is a lot of car for the money. Find a Lexus LC for sale
