The special edition Lexus LC Inspiration Series is now available to order in Australia.

It has unique 21-inch forged alloy wheel design to give a more aggressive as well as enhancing aerodynamic performance. Mono-tone gloss black paint on the wheels give the lower areas of the car a tauter impression. Jet-black plating is used for the front radiator grille surround and rear light covers.

Special edition-exclusive black ornamentation continues across the front radiator grille and bumper garnish, headlamp surround, side rocker moulding and rear combination lamp bracket.

The LC Inspiration is available in three body colours – White Nova, Sonic Silver and Onyx.

Inside, black leather-accented front seats combine with saddle tan accents to create an interplay of tones, while Alcantara inserts further creates a luxury texture with a velvety, smooth feel.

Alcantara is also used on the steering wheel, gear selector, across the doors and centre console. Saddle Tan is used on the centre console and door armrest highlight strips, and on the seatbelts.

Compared with the series production LC, the positioning of the upholstery is deeply drawn into the pad side to provide the clearance for the front occupants’ body to sink into the front seat. We are told this enhances hip position holding performance by 18 per cent – so thereā€¦

Every Lexus LC also includes the Lexus Encore Platinum owner benefits program, delivering the luxury of time with access to valet parking passes, the ability to loan another vehicle via Lexus on Demand – as well as exclusive dining and accommodation offers, and what are described as “money-can’t-buy experiences with Lexus ambassadors”.

This latest special-edition Lexus LC is available on a strict order-only basis through Lexus Australia dealerships. Not that fewer than five units are expected to arrive in Australia.

It is priced from $219,393 for the LC 500 and $219,553 for the LC 500h. Dealer delivery charges and on-road costs have to be factored in. We suggest you contact your favourite Lexus dealer to enquire about this.
