The LC500 is easily one of the most stylish vehicles in the Lexus roster. That’s why it’s always a treat when the carmaker decides to roll out limited-edition versions of the two-door coupe.
The latest one is the LC500 Inspiration Series. If you’re an avid reader of our page, you know how we like sleek, stealthy designs like this blacked-out exterior. We reckon this and the LX570 Inspiration Series would make for good additions to anyone’s dream Lexus garage.
The entire exterior is finished in Obsidian, with a carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic roof up top and 21-inch black forged-alloy wheels underneath. There’s also a carbon fiber rear air wing spoiler out back to boot.
Inside, this LC500 gets unique black Alcantara-trimmed sport seats with Saddle Tan accents and seat belts. In addition, the vehicle also gets a 13-speaker Mark Levinson 915-watt reference surround sound audio system.
The LC500 Inspiration Series sees no changes under the hood, so it still packs a 471hp, 540Nm naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8. This is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, so expect this grand tourer to still be a dream to drive on the freeway.
It also comes equipped with added tech such as its vehicle stability control system gaining active cornering assist. It also boasts features from the Lexus Safety System+ including lane departure alert with lane keep assist, pre-collision system with pedestrian braking, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection. All-speed dynamic radar cruise control also comes as standard.
Only 100 units of this beaut will be produced, and each one with a unique serialized badge, so owners will be part of a pretty exclusive group. What do you make of it? Like the Lexus LC500’s look?
