На автосалоне в Чикаго состоится премьера купе Lexus LC 500 Inspiration Edition. Автомобиль появится в продаже в апреле 2019 года и тираж новинки для рынка Северной Америки составит всего 100 экземпляров.

Lexus LC 500 Концепция вдохновения

Единственной особенностью новинки станет её оформление. Ярко-жёлтый цвет кузова, крыша и нижняя решётка радиатора из углепластика, 21-дюймовые тёмные колёса с Y-образными спицами — вот фишки LC 500 Inspiration Edition.

В салоне появятся вставки из жёлтой алькантары на дверях, а сиденья будут отделаны белой кожей и получат жёлтую нить прострочки, которая также появится на передней панели и центральной консоли.

Технических изменений у LC 500 Inspiration Edition от стандартного LC 500 не будет. Купе сохранит 471-сильный 5-литровый атмосферный V8 с 10-ступенчатой автоматической коробкой передач.

Каждый владелец LC 500 Inspiration Edition получит сумку для одежды с подкладкой цвета Flare Yellow и прострочкой того же тона.

Для Lexus это не первый опыт использования такой окраски — ранее марка уже демонстрировала спецверсии в цвете Flare Yellow, но те купе были созданы для Европы.

2019 Lexus LC 500 Inspiration Series Debuts in Chicago
A limited-production coupe with an awe-inspiring appearance
First offering of Flare Yellow exterior paint for the LC in the U.S.
Unique interior features custom colors, materials and door sills
January 30, 2019
CHICAGO (January 30, 2019) – Lexus is bringing some heat to the 2019 Chicago Auto Show with the first public appearance of the 2019 LC 500 Inspiration Edition. The third vehicle in the Lexus Inspiration Series, this LC 500 is a limited-edition model that features a unique mix of colors and features that build on the coupe’s stunning design.
All 2019 LC 500 Inspiration Series coupes feature vibrant Flare Yellow paint, a rich, metallic shade of yellow that’s eye catching from a distance, yet subtly handsome up close where the deep layers of paint highlight every crease in the sheetmetal. Standard 21-inch wheels and tires give this LC the perfect stance while the carbon fiber roof and lower grille insert add just the right amount of contrast.   
The interior of the LC Inspiration Series also gets several unique design elements.  Bespoke Yellow door inserts made of Alcantara connect the exterior to the cabin while the standard touring seats feature semi-aniline leather with yellow stitching. That same stitching is also used on the instrument panel, console and glovebox to give the entire cabin a one-of-a-kind look.
It's not exactly a one-of-a-kind look, however, as there will be a total of 100 of these LC 500 Inspiration Series cars produced. An inscription on the carbon fiber door sills marks each car as part of this exclusive production run and each car will come with a matching leather Lexus garment bag that folds into a spacious travel bag. Flare Yellow lining highlights the inside panels, and double yellow stitching adorns the top hem which makes it a perfect complement for a weekend getaway in this new LC.
The LC Inspiration Series is powered by the same 5.0-liter, normally aspirated V8 found in every LC 500 coupe. It sends 471-horsepower to the rear wheels through a 10-speed automatic transmission, a setup that is capable of delivering a 0-to-60 mph time of just 4.4 seconds.
The 2019 LC 500 Inspiration Series will go on sale in April starting at $106,210 not including destination.
