Lexus’s incoming LC500 is set to blow away the company’s boring stereotype with a thundering 5.0-litre V8 exhaust note.

Desperate to peel away the cardigan and slippers image that’s wrapped Lexus of late, video of the firm’s next flagship coupe clearing its lungs reveals the car’s 351kW engine hasn’t been muffled one bit.

With the car still in pre-production stages we can’t fully trust this will be the LC500’s exact song. And admittedly it’s not any more savage than the RC F’s wonderful timbre, but at least it indicates Lexus serious about giving the LC500 enough flair to match its rivals – which will include the raucous Maserati GranTurismo and BMW 650i.

And if you’re keen to know more than what the LC500 will sound like we’ve also peeled back the juiciest details on the coupe here
