Inside the LC Inspiration Series, Lexus has targeted increasing the tactility of high touch-point areas that contribute to an exclusive, high-performance feel befitting an aviation-inspired special edition coupe.
Entering the vehicle, Inspiration Series-unique carbon scuff plates read Lexus LC Special Edition to heighten the feeling of exclusivity and blend the outside of the vehicle with an introduction to the cabin.
Black leather-accented front seats combine with saddle tan accents to create a unique interplay of tones, while Alcantara™1inserts further creates a luxury texture with a velvety, smooth feel.
Alcantara™1 is also used on the steering wheel, gear shifter, across the doors and centre console to further lift tactility for occupants, gelling with saddle tan used as centre console and door armrest highlight strips – and as the seatbelt colour.
The LC Inspiration Series further adopts deep-hung front seat construction that debuted in the new LS in Australia in January, 2021.
Compared with the series production LC, the positioning of the upholstery is deeply drawn into the pad side to provide the clearance for the front occupants’ body to sink into the front seat, enhancing hip position holding performance by 18%.
It is available on a strict order-only basis through Lexus Australia dealerships, and fewer than five units are expected to arrive in Australia. Available in Coupe body style, it is priced from $219,3932 for the LC 500 or $219,5532 for the LC 500h.
The immediately rewarding LC 500 powertrain continues to deliver the high emotion and exhilarating performance demanded by sports car drivers, with 351kW of power, 540Nm of torque and a standard limited-slip differential (LSD) with rear-wheel drive.
An unrivalled sports car blend of superb performance with incredibly low fuel consumption, the LC 500h petrol-electric powertrain defines the Lexus commitment to imaginative technology – while thrilling drivers with a combined 264kW.
