2020 Lexus LC 500 Goes “Green” With Inspiration Series Limited Edition

Lexus has just launched a new special edition of its LC luxury coupe, named the Inspiration Series.

The model is limited to 100 units in the United States, where it will go on sale this fall with pricing to be announced close to the on-sale date. It will also arrive in European showrooms in October.

Externally, the special edition it is instantly recognizable by the Nori Green Pearl that is exclusive to the LC 500 Inspiration Series and the two-tone, 21-inch wheels.

The interior has went through a makeover as well, getting a two-tone color scheme that blends the Bespoke Saddle Tan, another unique feature, with a darker shade of Alcantara. Providing further contrast to the tan seats is the Black Amber leather trim applied on the dashboard, center console, doors and steering wheel, with brown stitching. Inspired by the geometric shapes found in the taillights, the laser-cut, custom sill plates are also model-specific.

The LC 500’s 5.0-liter V8 carries over with no mechanical changes, which means it still puts out 471 horsepower (478 PS / 351 kW) and 398 pound-feet (540 Nm) of torque, directed to the rear axle via a 10-speed automatic transmission and a limited-slip differential. Like the stock variant, the Inspiration Series hits the 60 mph (96 km/h) mark 4.4 seconds and tops out at 168 mph (270 km/h).

    I like the Structural Blue the most. It tickles the science nerd inside of me, but I hate the white and orange interior it comes with. The yellow special edition is nice, but in my book yellow is for sports cars and doesn’t really fit the LC500’s personality. This green is a great option too, but I still think white looks best. In my head, a white LC500 looks like an updated LFA and that’s all I need to love it.

    That color is so, so pretty.

    What a beautiful vehicle.

    That is one of the nicest greens I’ve seen on a new car in a long time.

    I would have loved if the dash was tan and the seat were cream but it is a lovely color overall.

    This color is beautiful.

  • An Existing Person

    Beautiful car in a beautiful color combination. This definitely doesn’t help the itch I have to own one of these.

  • Kagan

    Nice colour, we need much more like that. Boring with silver, grey and black.

  • Six Thousand Times

    I couldn’t have one before and now they offer it in my favourite colour?

  • Ary Wisesa

    The “base” car itself is already extraordinary, and the beautiful green color only makes it even more dazzling. This is one nice example of automotive art piece.

  • SteersUright

    An almost awesome car. In person it looks too fat and it certainly weighs to damn much. Waiting for Lexus to build a proper sports car for the people, none of that pie-in-the-sky LFA nonsense (it was awesome though) that nobody can afford.
