The 2021 Lexus LC 500 Coupe is an impressive car in any configuration. However, every year Lexus releases a special edition of the Inspiration Series that is even more striking.
In 2019, the first series was completed in Flare Yellow, and last year’s 2020 series was Nori Green.
Now the 2021 LC 500 Inspiration Series has just made its debut, officially, wearing a shade that’s more intense than dark obsidian.
As with previous Inspiration Series models, only 100 copies will be produced.
As a special edition car, it comes with features not found on any other LC model. For example, the 21inch black alloy wheels are not found on any other LC.
Well, not just any LC model can be bought easily, and Lexus LC 500 Aviation Edition fans might remember, it was limited to just 70 units in Japan.
The new 2021 LC 500 Inspiration Series appears to be identical to the Aviation Edition, but the steering wheel is now on the left.
Knowing that there are 70 identical cars in Japan dilutes the Inspiration Series a bit, except that it’s safe to say that very few LC owners own a car that looks something like this.
Other unique exterior details include a standard CFRP roof and a carbon fiber rear air spoiler.
This special edition also includes some of the best LC options, such as a Torsen limited slip differential and a Yamaha rear performance rod.
As with all LC 500 models, power comes from a 5.0liter V8, naturally breathing, producing 471 horsepower and 398 lbft of torque.
The power is sent to the rear wheels via a 10speed automatic transmission, which results in an acceleration time from 0 to 60 mph of 4.4 seconds.
The Inspiration Series receives a unique interior with black Alcantara sport seats, a black Alcantara steering wheel and shift lever, saddle tan accents and brown seat belts.
The sequential badge on the center console and carbon fiber skid plate reminds occupants that they are sitting in a limited edition vehicle.
The LC Inspiration Series also has the best interior options, including the 13speaker Mark Levinson audio system, HUD, and SmartAccess Card Key.
No pricing has been announced, but last year’s model cost $ 104,105, which would be a major upgrade from the base LC 500’s $ 93,050.
