The first Lexus LC500 sports car to be delivered in South Africa was recently handed over to its ecstatic new owner, Gregg P. Cornell at the Lexus Gateway dealership.
Gregg is an avid Lexus driver, recognising exceptional quality when he sees it, this is Gregg’s seventeenth Lexus that he has bought. “I own other supercars but the Lexus is superior,” Gregg said speaking excitedly just before taking delivery of his new LC500.
“I really like the people at Lexus Umhlanga,” Gregg added, “they treat me like a demigod, they really are fantastic.” He said.
When Gregg was asked what it was about Lexus that attracted him the most and he replied, “Besides the awesome performance and superior quality workmanship, it is the fact that everything is included in the price, everything is built in, factory fitted.” Gregg beamed with enthusiasm, adding “And the LC500 comes with a ten-speed gearbox, isn’t that awesome?”
The LC500 introduces the first 10-speed gearbox in a luxury car and the LC500 is equipped with a five litre, naturally aspirated V8 engine. With 351 kilowatts of power available and a whopping 450 Newton metres of torque, this is a Supercar with an attitude.
Just looking at the sleek body lines, an expression of finesse married to brute power, the goose bumps covered my whole body.
It was wonderful to watch how the staff at Lexus Gateway as they went out of their way to make this exciting moment that much more special for Gregg. An amazing car from an amazing dealership, Lexus Gateway.
