PostHeaderIcon High Rollin’: Five Sports Cars You Can Buy For Less Than The Price Of Tires for the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo

Remember the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo Concept? I’m sure most of you do because it’s on the short list of most incredible reveals in 2017. It’s essentially a more hardcore version of the Bugatti Chiron, and there’s only one of its kind in the world. Yes, it’s a legitimate one-of-one. It also happens to be super expensive and in the short life that it’s had, it’s already been owned by two people. Prince Badr bin Saud of Saudi Arabia was the hypercar’s original owner, who bought it from Bugatti for an undisclosed sum that’s rumored to be in the ten-figure range. It didn’t take long, though, for the Vision GT Concept to change owners as the one-off has found its way to the US courtesy of its new owner in Los Angeles.

As important as those things are, I’m here to talk about a startling discovery about the Vision Gran Turismo, and as some of you might expect, that “discovery” is related to its tires. Apparently – prepare to sit down for this one – a new set of tires for the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo costs $93,000. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that’s $93,000. No typos. No misprints. No nothing. $93,000 for a set of tires.

Granted, it’s not out of the ordinary for the tires of Bugatti’s supercars to fetch insane amounts. A set of brand-new tires for the Veyron, for example, costs around $50,000 and a similar set for the all-new Chiron is actually a bargain at just over $40,000. But the Vision GT Concept trumps both of them, and it’s not even close. The price for a set of new tires for the concept is so preposterous that I’ve actually managed to come up with a list of sports cars that you can buy brand new for less than the price of the Vision GT’s tires. This is the auto world we live in now, folks. Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that it’s dripping in absurdity.

Lexus LC 500


2018 Lexus LC 500 - image 710874

Let’s start with a little Japanese flavor courtesy of Lexus and its newest GT sportster, the LC 500. There’s a lot to love about the LC 500, and it all starts with its looks. It may not be for everyone, but the striking styling dynamics of the LC 500 means that it’s a magnet for attention. It also features a well-prepared 5.0-liter V-8 that produces 467 horsepower and 389 pound-feet of torque. All that power is then sent to the rear wheels courtesy of a newly developed Aisin 10-speed automatic transmission, which in turn allows the LC500 to hit 60 mph from an idle position in just 4.3 seconds before setting off on a top speed run that could peak at about 180 mph. I’m not as giddy about the fact that the model starts at $92,975, but at that price, you’re still looking at one of the best GT sports cars in the world. Don’t believe me? Take one out for a spin, and you’ll be shocked at how remarkably crisp and agile it is for a Lexus. I know from experience.

Mercedes-AMG C 63


2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 - image 569747

From one of Japan’s finest sports cars to one of the most established sports cars from Germany comes the Mercedes-AMG C 63. Some of you are probably wondering why I chose the AMG C 63 in favor of something like the AMG E 63 S. The latter, for one, clocks in at a price of just over $100,000 so it doesn’t qualify in comparing it to the $93,000 it costs for the Vision Gran Turismo’s four tires. The important answer though is pretty simple: value for your money. This is what the AMG C 63 has over its E 63 counterpart. Not only does it boast of AMG’s famous 5.5-liter, biturbo, V-8 engine, it’s also good enough to produce 503 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. Those numbers are good enough to post a 4.0-second sprint to 60 mph. And, with features like a three-stage stability control system, an electronic limited-slip differential, and brake-based torque vectoring, it’s hard to think of the AMG C 63 as a run-off-the-mill sports car. It’s far from one, to be exact, and with a price that starts at $81,775, it’s a huge steal relative to what it’s capable of doing.

Chevrolet Corvette Z06

I can’t imagine how four pieces of tires can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in three seconds by themselves. Can you see that happening? I didn’t think so. That shouldn’t be a problem though for the Chevrolet Corvette Z06, regarded today as the most powerful road-going Corvette ever built. It may be a sports car by segment definition, but rest assured, it packs supercar-like powers, thanks in large part to a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine that packs a meaty 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. Not only does it rival the power produced by models like the McLaren 650S and the Ferrari 488 GTB, but it also costs just $83,995 in its base trim. Go for the whole enchilada and you’re looking at a price that approaches $100,000. The loaded version of the Corvette Z06 may be a little more expensive than the Bugatti Vision GT’s tires, but the things you can do with the ‘Vette – specially with that manual transmission in tow – far outpoints anything you can do with the Vision GT’s tires.

Cadillac CTS-V


2016 Cadillac CTS-V - image 599734

Let’s continue with the American performance car theme and present to you one of the most underrated performance machines to come out of our shores: the Cadillac CTS-V. While it’s true that it doesn’t get the publicity that some of its contemporaries get, the CTS-V is a load of a machine in it of itself. For instance, it makes use of a massive 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine that spits out 640 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. Those are Corvette Z06-like numbers for a performance sedan. That’s impressive stuff, especially when you consider that even with its relative girth, it can still sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds before peaking at a top speed of 200 mph! 200 mph! Here’s the best part: you can get all of that for just $83,995, leaving you with a little under $10,000 in spare change compared to the set of tires for the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo Concept.

Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

$84,995. That’s how much it’s going to cost you to buy a muscle car that produces a whopping 808 horsepower and 717 pound-feet of torque. I could leave it at that, but the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is worth mentioning because all that power translates to a 0-to-60-mph time of just 2.3 seconds, making it arguably the fastest-accelerating production car in the world. I don’t know if the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo can eclipse that number, but merely posing the thought means that the Challenger SRT Demon is worth the price of what you’re going to pay for it.

PostHeaderIcon Lexus LC 500 Inspired By Black Panther

As one of the most powerful and influential people in the Marvel Universe, you would think that Wakandan king T’Challa would have no problem procuring some of the most exotic supercars in the world. A Bugatti Chiron perhaps? Maybe a Koenigsegg Regera? But, the man who also is known as the Black Panther is far from a flashy fellow – his costume’s all-black! – so he’s probably not into the flaunting-his-wealth lifestyle that his colleague Tony Stark seems to be obsessed with. It’s also likely to be one of the reasons why he’s more than comfortable being spotted in a Lexus LC, and as fate – or marketing – would have it, we’re going to see exactly that at the 2017 SEMA Auto Show when Lexus brings a heavily dressed LC 500 dripping in Black Panther regalia.

For the record, Lexus actually created two LC 500 models for the promotion of the Black Panther movie. One of them is called the Lexus LC Inspiration Series. It’s more subdued than the other, owing to it being a special edition release that will be limited to just 100 units. The other unit, called the Black Panther Inspired LC, is a complete one-off and is not for sale. It’s also dripping in Wakandan technology, which isn’t a real thing to begin with, but awesome to imagine nevertheless. Hard to imagine Lexus suddenly getting resources from a fictional kingdom that gives them access to self-healing paint and vibranium-powered core indicator nodes, but you get the point. If you’re excited about getting the special edition unit that will be on sale, you might want to be on the look-out for when Lexus actually offers it up to the public. There’s not that many, to begin with, and considering the popularity of the Marvel Universe in this day and age, there’s a good chance all 100 units will be scooped up faster than it takes T’Challa to put on his Black Panther costume.

What makes the Lexus Black Panther Inspired LC special

  • Pulsating underbody glow
  • Side-view mirror design
  • Black Panther mask inlay on hood with vibranium-powered core indicator nodes
  • Vibranium-infused self-healing paint treatment
  • Customized body-widening kit
  • Wakandan B-CPU (Brain/Computer Interface) system
  • Remote Pilot Kimoyo Bead Interface

“The biggest takeaway from this model is its prevalent use of vibranium, the super precious metal that can only be found in the kingdom of Wakanda”

Let’s get started with the Black Panther Inspired LC Concept first because this is the one that’s literally out of this world. The biggest takeaway from this model is its prevalent use of vibranium, the super precious metal that can only be found in the kingdom of Wakanda. It’s also the same metal that makes up Captain America’s shield so you know it’s made from the good stuff. Somewhat incredibly, the Lexus LC 500 gets generous helpings of vibranium, including on the aesthetic front where the coupe’s sheet metal is reinforced with a layer of vibranium weave, making the concept virtually indestructible. If that’s not enough, Lexus also found a way to get its hands on vibranium-powered core indicator nodes that give the coupe unlimited fuel. Yep. Unlimited fuel.


2017 Lexus LC 500 Inspired By Black Panther - image 740240
“The concept is also fully autonomous, all thanks to a Remote Pilot Kimoyo Bead Interface”

Oh, and the concept is also fully autonomous, all thanks to a Remote Pilot Kimoyo Bead Interface whose functions are completely way over my head. All I know is that with this tech in place, the LC can be “driven remotely from control stations within Birnin Zana.” Good enough for me. From an aesthetic standpoint, the LC gets a wide-body kit and underbody glow because why not. The design of the side mirror is shaped like a panther’s claw and it has “instinctual positioning technology” that aligns with the driver’s eyeline automatically.

All that said, the most important feature of the Black Panther Inspired LC Concept is its Wakandan Brain/Computer Interface, a technology that’s able to create a symbiotic relationship between the driver and the actual car. Think of it in terms of the Jaeger program in Pacific Rim. In other words, it’s as futuristic as it is above and beyond rational explanation.


2017 Lexus LC 500 Inspired By Black Panther - image 740241
“All this tech-inspired wizardry doesn't apply in the real world so don't expect this concept to go up for sale anytime soon”

Unfortunately, all this tech-inspired wizardry doesn’t apply in the real world so don’t expect this concept to go up for sale anytime soon. If it did, prepare to be massively disappointed when you realize that all that talk of vibranium-powered core indicators and Wakandan Brain/Computer Interfaces are nothing more than figments of Lexus’ imagination.

PostHeaderIcon Pops’ Rants: Dumb Decisions Made in Japan

Nothing like a Friday 13th to end your work week, huh? Well, I’m not the superstitious type, but it’s on this day that I found out that Honda isn’t making a baby NSX. And that’s particularly upsetting since the design patent believed to be an upcoming sports car turned out to be just another Vision Gran Turismo thing. Nothing like getting a virtual car for a video game instead of an actual vehicle that could be really cool. Yuck!

In case you’re not familiar with the matter, a design patent that surfaced the web a while back hinted at a new Honda sports car. Its design was based on the bonkers NSX, it had a mid-engined layout, and it was smaller. This also meant it was lighter and more affordable. Like a dream come true, right? Well, it’s not gonna happen. Honda just wanted to make a Vision car for the upcoming Gran Turismo Sport video game. What a sad day…

We Want It, Honda Needs It!


2009 Honda S2000 - image 261606
“Come on Honda, we need a new S2000 but with the engine behind the seats”

The NSX is cool and all, but it’s also extremely expensive for the average Joe. And that’s exactly why a baby NSX is a good idea. Let’s say it would be a great competitor for the Porsche Cayman with a price tag between $55,000 to $60,000. Without an electric motor of course. Or at least with the option to get a range-topping hybrid model, but with a gasoline-only base car that delivers around 300 horsepower. And Honda would benefit greatly from such an offering, especially in the U.S.

But no, they’re more interested in having a Vision Gran Turismo car in a stupid video game. Yeah, I know, marketing and stuff, but it’s still an awful idea when you don’t have that many exciting cars on offer. Come on Honda, we need a new S2000 but with the engine behind the seats. Make it happen already!

Lexus Loves to Waste Time


2018 Lexus LC Structural Blue Edition - image 737618
“Why in the hell would you spend 15 years to make a special paint?”

Now listen to this! Lexus just launched a new paint for LC coupe, and it made a big deal about how it spent 15 years to create it. Yup, 15 years. Not weeks or months, 15 freaking years. For paint. That thing that gets scratched and fades away from enduring sunny, hot summers after snowy, freezing winters.

The new paint is called Structural Blue, and you saw it for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show. Granted, it’s gorgeous to look, and it’s not the typical blue you get from other carmakers. But it’s still paint, and it’s still blue. It’s far from amazing. So why the big fuss? Well, Lexus says it spent a lot of time to create a color that’s “more blue” than anything seen before. Much sense, such wow!

“I can live without the bluest blue out there”

Okay, okay, this one’s is more serious to read: Lexus says the specific hue it wanted to create was so complex that it required 40 separate layers. Sounds difficult and expensive to create. So it worked on it until it managed to obtain it with just a seven-layer structure. That’s great progress from a technique point of view, but I’m still missing on what they actually did in those 15 years.

And why in the hell would you spend 15 years to make a special paint? Entire cars need less than that to be designed, built, showcased, and launched. Heck, in 15 years we get two and a half generations of any popular car out there. That’s five models including the facelifts. Maybe Lexus should spend more time on improving some of its design. I can live without the bluest blue out there, but I can’t stand that ugly front grille and headlamps arrangement. Get your damn priorities straight!

wald-lexus-lc

Behold the magnificence of the soon-to-be-released Wald Lexus LC 500. If you have ordered any other styling kit for your upcoming LC just cancel the order and wait for this, because Wald’s offering is, well, I mean, just look at it. It’s awesome!

Japanese tuner Wald International has a unique touch and their kits, even if they share some of their design cues with other products, always have an x-factory, a little extra something that make them different and instantly recognizable as a Wald kit. With the Wald Lexus LC 500 the designers seem to have gone the extra mile to make sure the car is different to the standard car as a whole different model, and they seem to have pulled it off. Of course, we need to see the finished product before making a judgment, but it looks half as good as this teaser we’d say that’s a job well done.

Wald Lexus LC 500 styling package includes, based on the teaser, a front spoiler lip, new mesh grilles, extremely cool aero pieces on the front bumper, Porsche  RS-style fender vents, dynamic side skirts, and one would assume, an enormous rear diffuser and boot lid wing. Wald also suuplies fancy wheels and exhaust systems, but no power upgrade at this time.

PostHeaderIcon Lexus LC 500

The Lexus LF-LC originally debuted at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and since then, Lexus debuted the LF-LC Concept 2. Later in 2015, we got our hands on some spy photos of the LF-LC testing under camo in production form. It has been few years of constant teasing, but Lexus has finally unveiled the Lexus LC500 – the production variant of the LF-LC that we’ve been waiting for.

As you can see from a quick look, the LC500 isn’t all that different from the previous LF-LC concepts that we’ve seen. It is still the same low-sitting, dramatically styled coupe that will probably prove to be the best thing to come out of Lexus in a long time. With its unveiling, we’ve learned a lot about the 2+2 coupe that promises to be the future of Lexus, and to be honest, I can’t wait to see it on the street.

Akio Toyoda, a Master Driver and Chief Brand Officer for Lexus, said, “The LC 500 has been an important product for Lexus and me personally. 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.”

Of course, it’s not like you’ll see one at every corner. We’re not aware of pricing yet, but given the dramatic design and the details at hand, the car is sure to be reserved for those of the wealthier population. With that said, let’s take a look at Lexus’ new flagship luxury coupe and all the greatness that is Lexus LC500.

Update 3/20/2017: Lexus has announced pricing for the Lexus LC 500 and LC 500H. Check out our prices section below for all of the details.

PostHeaderIcon Get Ready, The Lexus LC F Is Coming

The Lexus LC is shaping up to be a legitimate contender to the established order of German sports cars, but as well-developed as the LC currently is, it still doesn’t have a range-topping model to call its own. Well, that’s all about to change now that parent company Toyota has officially filed trademarks to the names “LC F” and “Lexus LC F.

Granted, trademark filings aren’t automatic signs that a company is going to use the names it’s securing for a soon-to-be-released production model. For all we know, Toyota’s simply protecting the names so that other companies can’t use it. This is different though. The Lexus LC F is a car that’s on it’s way. You can take that to the bank.

Consider this: Lexus wants the LC to become its answer to established sports cars like the Porsche 911. It’s an ambitious goal, but it can be done if the automaker has the horses to make the 911 sweat. Here’s the thing though. The current LC lineup peaks with the LC 500 and its 471-horsepower and 398-pound-feet of torque numbers. Those are good numbers, but not good enough if Lexus hopes to truly compete against a car like the Porsche 911, let alone its two top-dog variants, the 540-horsepower 911 Turbo and the 580-horsepower 911 Turbo S.

A range-topping LC F would help fill that void for Lexus. It’s going to have to develop the heck out of it, but with the options it has at its disposal – don’t sleep on the LC F getting some form of turbos or even hybrid assistance – it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to see the LC F packing some serious punch that can knock down a German titan or two.

Remember, these trademarks filings aren’t clear indications of the LC F. But let’s not kid ourselves either. The model is coming and it’s coming for Germany’s finest.

PostHeaderIcon Lexus LC GT3

Lexus has loads of experience in the world of GT3 racing. Most recently, the Japanese manufacturer backed track-prepped derivatives of the SC430 for its homegrown SuperGT series, as well as a GTE-spec variant of the LFA. Lexus’ latest effort is the RC F GT3 racecar, which launched as an integral part of the automaker’s motorsports program going into 2016. Realistically, the RC F has a good deal of development ahead of it before its ready to go for a title shot, but regardless, there’s still a chance we may see another GT3 racer out of Lexus sometime in the future. Why? Simple – there’s a new flagship on the block. It’s called the LC 500, and it’s a sports coupe instilled with Lexus’ sporting intentions front to back, making it a prime candidate for racing glory.

If Lexus does decide to move forward with a competition-ready LC GT3 racer, it’ll probably see action at events like the 24 Hours Nurburgring and benefit from the support of go-faster wizards from Gazoo Racing. But what’ll it look like, both on the outside and under the skin?

We wanted to know, so we penned a rendering and drummed up a little speculation.

PostHeaderIcon Lexus LC 500h Specs Revealed

Lexus LC 500h Specs-0

So a few days after Lexus announced the debut of the hybrid LC Coupe at the Geneva Motor Show, the Japanese automaker has now released the specs and details of the car. Lexus LC 500h features a new Multi Stage Hybrid System tuned for better responsiveness and performance than conventional hybrids.

The core of Lexus LC 500h’s hybrid powertrain is a 3.5 liter V6 petrol unit and it’s connected to a powerful electric motor fed by lithium-ion battery pack. The system has a combined output of 354 horsepower and is connected to a 4-speed automatic gearbox mounted at the rear. This results in “better acceleration feel” but the actual 0 to 100 km/h time is about 5 seconds which is hardly impressive these days. Just like the normal LC, this car is also rear-wheel-drive.

Although Lexus 500h benefits from many weight saving measures, including aluminium front hood and fenders, aluminium door skins mounted on a carbon fibre structure, a carbon and glass composite boot lid, aluminium front suspension towers, ultra-compact LED headlamps, available forged alloy wheels and carbon fibre roof, it is still on the heavy side. So no, if you are looking for sporty handling and stuff like that, this car is not for you. But if you want luxury, comfort and style, not many cars come close.

Design is really the main strength of Lexus LC, regular or hybrid. This will probably be the only take on the spindle grille people are not going to criticize, because the package on the whole looks so amazing, you just don’t care. The car measures 4,760 mm long, 1,920 mm wide, and 1,345 mm tall, and boasts a wheelbase of 2,870 mm.

Among the main technology features, we can mention Pre-Crash Safety (PCS) system with a pedestrian detection function, All-speed Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane-Keeping Assist (LKA), and Automatic High Beam (AHB) headlamp technology.

PostHeaderIcon Lexus LC 500h

It’s been a little more than two months since we entered a new calendar year and Toyota is arguably the busiest automaker out there. On one hand it decided to axe the Scion sub-brand, while on the other hand, it is working on an expansion program for the Lexus division, which received a brand-new member at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. It is called the LC 500 — it’s drop dead gorgeous, and sports the RC-F’s naturally aspirated V-8 under the hood. We’ve already speculated about the possibility of getting an LC F and LC 500 Convertible in the coming years, and Lexus has just announced that the luxury coupe will go hybrid.

The first derivative of the LC 500 family will break cover at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and, unsurprisingly, will be sold as the LC 500h. The new vehicle will expand Lexus’ hybrid lineup to seven nameplates, but more importantly, it will become the company’s first two-door with a blue badge on its nose.

The two-door hybrid, which is also based on the LF-LC concept., will debut alongside the LF-FC study, which made its first appearance at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2015. The LC 500h will break cover on March 1st, so make sure you stick around for the full rundown and live photos from Geneva. Meanwhile, keep reading to find out what we already know about Lexus’ first hybrid coupe.

PostHeaderIcon Lexus LC F

After more than two years of constant teasing and two concept cars, Lexus has finally unveiled its new 2+2 coupe at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. Dubbed LC 500, the new coupe is stunning to look at, has a luxurious interior, and comes with a stout, naturally aspirated V-8 powerplant, making it one of the most exciting Lexus products yet. And, despite having two extra seats and missing a V-10 powerplant, the LC 500 is already being considered a successor to the mighty LFA.

While the two have very little in common as far as underpinnings go, I can totally understand why Lexus enthusiasts are comparing it to the LFA. The LC 500 has a strong presence, a low-slung stance, and it blends luxury and sportiness under the same roof. Granted, it’s nowhere near as powerful as the LFA, but what if Lexus is planning to release a more potent version later on? This question prompted us to render an F-badged version of the LC 500.

No, Lexus hasn’t confirmed such a model is underway, but as you may have already noticed, we like to speculate a lot about future products. And, since we’ve nailed quite a few models recently, we decided to go ahead and preview what a high-performance LC F would bring to the table.
