The Inspiration Series is the latest addition to the the LC’s U.S. range. It will premiere next month at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show and go on sale in April with an MSRP of $106,210, excluding destination fees.
Limited to 100 examples, it sports a Flare Yellow paint on the outside that’s contrasted by the carbon fiber lower grille insert and roof. All cars will ride on 21-inch rims as standard.
In the cabin, the new LC 500 Inspiration Series features Alcantara yellow door inserts and semi-aniline leather with contrasting stitching on the dashboard, central console and glove box. The special edition LC also comes with an inscription on the carbon fiber door sills that marks its limited production run.
Ordering the LC 500 Inspiration Series will give owners a matching leather Lexus garment bag, which folds into a spacious travel bag as detailed in the image gallery below.
Since it’s based on the 500 model, it uses the same 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 that produces 471 HP (478 PS / 351 kW) and 398 pound-feet (540 Nm) of torque, directed to the rear wheels through a 10-speed automatic gearbox.
Since there are no mechanical changes, the Inspiration Series’ performance is identical to the normal model, which means it hits 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.4 seconds and goes all the way up to 168 mph (270 km/h).
