11. 2017 Lexus SC
Aren’t grand tourers some of the most beautiful vehicles in the world? Yep. And judging by what has been released so far, the 2017 Lexus SC is going to be one of the most beautiful grand tourers of them all, inside and out!
Designed and engineered to replace the Lexus SC that was last made way back in 2010, this not-yet-released Lexus SC is a whole new car that ought to become Lexus’s flagship luxury sports coupe and convertible grand tourers.
Since it has not yet been released, there is still plenty of chit chat going on about just what engines it will sport. Initially, the most likely engine will be based upon the 467-horsepower 5-0-L V8 engine that the Lexus RC F and GS F use. However, there are rumblings that engines powering M and AMG cars along with the Cadillac CTS-V engine that pumps out 640 horses all have a chance of becoming an engine of this Lexus. And, finally, many believe that at some point, there will be a hybrid Lexus SC to hit the market.
With a starting price of somewhere around $80k, this grand tourer is not being made to compete head to head with such stalwart grand tourers as those produced by Bentley and Aston Martin. No sir, the Lexus SC grand tourer will battle some of the Mercedes and BMW models.
