    Lexus LC 500

    Any one seen or driven one? I love the design, the squatness and the width. The rear is a bit too bulky, but I suspect it may look different in the metal. Sounds absolutely amazing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHw-uuKzdBs

It doesn't appear to have much, not even heated seats. Surely they weren't an option on the avantgarde spec? Should it have Comand? Ad says so...
