Exactly 100 units will be made: Lexus LC 500 has got a special version of Inspiration Series.

The Lexus LC coupe has got another limited edition called «Inspiration Series», designed specifically for the US market.

Externally, the Lexus LC Inspiration Series is a lot like the Japanese Aviation special version. In particular, the body of this modification is also painted in a special shade «Obsidian».

Plus the car has 21-inch forged wheels, a carbon fiber roof and a rear wing.

Of the interior features, it is worth noting sports seats with upholstery in two-tone Alcantara, a special nameplate on the dashboard, and carbon fiber decor.

The American special version is based on the petrol Lexus LC 500, which means that such a car is driven by a standard 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine.

The latter works in conjunction with a ten-speed automatic, developing 477 hp. and 540 Nm.

A total of 100 Inspiration Series two-doors will be produced. Deliveries of cars to customers will begin in the coming months, but the cost of the limited coupe has not yet been announced.

Most likely, the price tag will be comparable to the Japanese version of Aviation, for which the Japanese asked from $ 144,000 (about 10.6 million rubles at the current exchange rate).

The new Lexus LC 500 Inspiration Series has turned to aviation.

The inspirational two-door is the most expensive Lexus LC 500 in America. The coupe starts at $ 110,420 (8.15 million rubles), while the open version Convertible asks for $ 119,800 (8.85 million).

In the fall of 2017, Japanese pilot Yoshihide Muroya became the world champion in the Red Bull Air Race, setting a new track record for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (1: 03.026).

Muroya owes much of his victory to Lexus engineers who previously worked on the LFA supercar.

They managed to increase the aerodynamic efficiency of the aircraft due to the «inverted wing».

Lexus has now applied its aviation expertise to the 2021 LC 500 Inspiration Series coupe. We have already seen the Japanese version, and the American one repeats it.

Muroya became the first pilot from Japan and across Asia to win a Red Bull Air Race. The victory was not easy due to technical malfunctions of the aircraft.

For example, Yoshihide missed the flight day in Porto and finished sixth, and at the 14th stage in Kazan finished 13th.

The unusual wing of the aircraft «inspired» the new rear spoiler, which is made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) and goes «in the base» along with forged 21 «wheels.

The body is painted only in black Obsidian color scheme.

«Sports» seats, multifunction steering wheel and automatic lever are finished in black Alcantara with Saddle Tan inserts. The door cards are adorned with carbon fiber overlays.

The equipment includes a Mark Levinson Reference Surround Sound system with 13 speakers (915 W) and a color head-up display.

Although the circulation of the series, as before, is limited to a hundred cars (there are number plates in the cabin), the «inspiring» LC 500 is equipped everyday: a gasoline aspirated V8 5.0 (477 hp, 540 N • m), a ten-speed «automatic» Direct- Shift and rear wheel drive.

The coupe accelerates to 96.5 km / h in 4.4 seconds and consumes 9.4 l / 100 km in the EPA cycle. You do not need to pay extra for the Lexus Safety System + safety complex.

In Russia, the LC 500 is now available only in the Sport + version with a price of 8,887,000 rubles.
