Lexus LC Coupe Black Inspiration Ditches Chrome And Colors For A Total Black Look

The Lexus LC Coupe is going for a sinister this fall with the new Black Inspiration variant unveiled for the U.K. The brand dispenses with all chrome and nearly any colors whatsoever, replacing them with black.

For starters, the car gets a Graphite Black paint finish along with dark 21-inch five-spoke forged alloy wheels that are exclusive to it. The spindle grille, the door mirror casings, the headlight and taillight cluster surrounds are all also finished in black, while a carbon-fiber roof and scuff plates round out the look.

Inside, there are 10-way power-adjustable front seats finished in fine-quality semi-aniline leather, as well as a 13-speaker Mark Levinson premium surround sound system, a head-up display, and a card key, all building on the LC Sport Plus Pack.

The Lexus LC Black Inspiration is available with both the V8-powered LC 500 and the hybrid LC 500h. The former makes 464 HP (471 PS/346 kW) from a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter eight-cylinder while the latter is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 with electrical assistance that makes 354 HP (359 PS/264 kW).

Performance is aided by a Torsen limited-slip diff, dynamic rear steering and variable gear ratio steering. It also benefits from comfort features like a heated steering wheel, smart entry, front seat heating and ventilation, adaptive variable suspension, and safety features provided by the Lexus Safety System+ suite.

Lexus will open order books and announce pricing for the LC Coupe Black Inspiration on November 1.
