for 2021, the lexus lc500 is getting the addition of a limited-edition variant: the inspiration series. there will be just 100 examples made of the lexus lc500 inspiration series, an edition which adds carbon-fiber accents throughout the vehicle along with other accessories to boost performance and make the lc500 even more eye-catching.
the lc 500 inspiration series comes in one paint color, obsidian, as shown here and will also come with 21-inch black forged aluminum-alloy wheels. the roof is carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic and is complemented by the carbon-fiber rear spoiler. lexus says the rear spoiler and the inspiration series more generally were inspired by the partnership between air-race pilot yoshihide muroya, whose plane lexus helped design. inside, black alcantara-trimmed seats on the interior are paired with saddle tan accents and seatbelts.
the lc500 inspiration series is powered by the same 5.0-liter v-8 with 471 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque seen in the standard coupe. it does gain, however, a torsen limited-slip rear differential to optimize traction and a few suspension tweaks that are also offered with the sport package on the standard lc500.
