Bespoke Lexus UX 250h And LC Inspiration Series Concepts Want Your Attention

Lexus is returning to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as a sponsor, marking the occasion by presenting two brand new concepts in the form of a customized UX 250h and the LC Inspiration Series.

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.

    Yesterday, we had Rolls Royces in a dreadful shade of blue. Now, today, we have the same hideous shade of blue on the hideous UX and a vomit-inducing yellow on an LC. I’m guessing tomorrow will bring split-pea soup green on something.

    do not want. Audi,merc etc have fast and even faster versions of small crossovers but not lexus. It has to be the most boring lux car brand out there.

    WTF is this nonsense? I just don’t get Lexus. It’s all just so bad.

    I may be in the minority, but I actually quite like this UX. Perhaps in another, more monotone color it would look better.

      I oddly like it as well.

      I rather have controversial and oddball styling than the cardboard drivel that Subaru continues to make.

    Did Lexus hand over their design department to 10 year old gamers?
