2018 Lexus LC Inspiration Series

The King of Wakanda is inspiring a new LC coupe, a car that will serve as the launching point for their new Inspiration Series models. The 2018 LC Inspiration Series will be wrapped in a unique paint treatment called 'Structural Blue' and is the first of its kind to exist on any car. 

The paint takes its inspiration from the Morpho butterfly and has no blue pigment. This effect is accomplished by reflecting blue light and makes the car look as if it's in motion when at a standstill. Alongside the new paint and the standard LC features, the car will also include a carbon fiber scuff plate, a custom white interior, 21" forged wheels, and a signature Barneys sommelier set.

The car will be limited to 100 examples in the US and will be available in Spring 2018.
