The award-winning design of Lexus’s flagship coupe projects an even more commanding presence with the new LC Black Inspiration.
The latest addition to the LC range dispenses with the chrome detailing to present a sophisticated all-black look, from its wheels to its exclusive Graphite Black paint finish. The famous spindle grille, door mirror casings, headlight and rear light cluster surrounds and even the headlight cleaners go back to black to create an extra dimension of visual drama in the car’s powerful styling.
The equipment specification takes its lead from the current LC Sport Plus Pack, adding 10-way power-adjustable front seats upholstered in fine-quality semi-aniline leather; a bespoke 13-speaker Mark Levinson premium surround sound system, head-up display and a card key. New exterior features include a fixed rear spoiler and 21-inch five-spoke forged alloy wheels, together with the Sport Plus Pack-specified carbon fibre roof and scuff plates.
The LC’s dynamic performance is enhanced with a Torsen limited-slip differential, dynamic rear steering and Variable Gear Ratio Steering. Other features include Lexus Safety System+ active safety and driver assistance systems, smart entry, heated steering wheel, front seat heating and ventilation, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Adaptive Variable Suspension.
The Black Inspiration is the latest in a series of limited edition models for the coupe, which includes the Lexus LC Structural Blue with its advanced paintwork inspired by the Morpho butterfly, the dazzling Naples Yellow Limited Edition and the beautiful Terrane Khaki Limited Edition and its equally striking Saddle Tan and Black Amber leather interior.
The Black Inspiration model is available for both the full hybrid electric LC 500h and the V8 powered LC 500. It will be available to order from 1 November when pricing will be announced.
