Lexus to produce 100 Yellow LC 500 coupes

Lexus will display a Flare Yellow LC 500 at the Chicago Auto Show next week, and will offer 100 of the lemon-colored coupes on sale through its dealerships this year as part of its Inspiration Series of limited-edition vehicles.

The 2019 LC 500 Inspiration Series coupes will travel on 21-inch wheels and feature a contrasting carbon fiber roof and lower grille.

On the inside, the special color door inserts and the matching embroidery seams continue with the yellow theme. The LC 500 Inspiration series will share the 5.0-liter V8 engine of the existing coupe and the 10-speed automatic transmission.

In addition, Lexus says it will provide each buyer with a corresponding Lexus garment bag. US concessionaires UU Lexus will begin taking orders for the limited-run LC 500 at the end of February. Deliveries will begin in April. The 2019 LC 500 Inspiration Series price will start from $ 107,235, including shipping.

This is the 3rd vehicle in the Lexus Inspiration series. Last year, the brand made a similar LC 500 coupe at Structural Blue in coordination with the Black Panther film, while last fall, it announced a 500-unit series of a crossover from the LX Inspiration series.
