One car I've been keeping an eye on is the all-new Lexus LC500.

Ever since I saw the production car in red at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS) I've been hooked.

It's only gotten worse since I saw the LC500h in blue at the 2016 New York Auto Show (NYIAS).

Now that we've rotated to the modded scene, Lexus who also makes sure to have a presence at SEMA decided now was the time to bring out its tuned up LC. Working with vendors who had their hands on a prototype up to one year before its debut, the manufacturer let these tuners get to work.

What's changed? Note the following: All-new suspension, 22-inch wheel and tire package, aerodynamic fixes that include front valence, side skirts, rear diffuser, rear lip spoiler and fender flares, and Sparco carbon fiber-backed seating. Sounds good, but, there's more than what meets the eye here.

According to Lexus, the folks at DSPORT increased the 5.0-liter V8 to 5.6 liters and it now produces 525 horsepower. That's a rather nice figure, if you ask me.

So, I've got to ask: Is THIS now the sexiest Lexus since the debut of the LFA?
