The latter, according to Lexus, is meant to represent the ultimate expression of its flagship coupe. This is actually the second time Lexus have come out with an Inspiration Series version of the LC, the first one being displayed in 2017.
This year’s concept comes with a Flare Yellow exterior, a unique set of black 21-inch forged alloys, a carbon fiber roof and an active rear spoiler. Inside, you’ll find bespoke yellow door inserts made from Alcantara, and semi-aniline leather seats with yellow stitching – which is also found on the instrument panel, console and glovebox.
Power comes from a naturally aspirated 471 HP, 5.0-liter V8 feeding the rear wheels through a 10-speed automatic gearbox. In a straight line, the LC Inspiration Series can hit 60 mph (96 km/h) from a standstill in just 4.4 seconds, while averaging up to 25 mpg (9.4 l/100km) on the highway.
A more aggressive-looking UX
While the UX crossover won’t arrive at Lexus dealers until December, that hasn’t stopped the automaker from creating an even more aggressive-looking version.
Built by Clark Ishihara of VIP Auto Salon, this custom UX 250h features an Oracal wrap and custom roof rack for a very special F Sport Carbon Fiber Road Bicycle, itself created to mark the completion of the Lexus LFA’s production run.
Other mods found on this UX 250h include the NIA Auto Design ABS Lip Kit, the Vossen VFS-1 wheels, Nitto Invo tires, Apexi N1 EXV damper suspension and full cat-back exhaust, plus the Inno Base Rack with the slim fork lock bike system.
