Lexus just announced the latest Inspiration Series for the 2024 LC500 coupe and convertible models—sorry LC500h hybrid, better luck next time. This special-edition Inspiration Series will be limited to just 125 cars for North America, including 33 coupes and 92 convertibles. Unsurprisingly, the special-edition cars carry a hefty premium over the standard production siblings, with pricing starting at $116,700 for the coupe and $121,900 for the convertible.
Both the coupe and convertible add canards to the front bumper, which are meant to balance front-end lift at higher speeds. The Inspiration Series coupe also adds a carbon-fiber fixed rear wing to keep the rear end planted. On top of that, both models gain a standard Torsen limited-slip differential along with rear performance dampers—both items from the LC’s optional Sport package. The coupe version also incorporates the convertible’s front and rear underfloor braces, and, as a bonus comes with a standard carbon-fiber roof.
In addition to the performance upgrades, the Inspiration Series cars also get unique styling details. The coupe models get a combination of Polar Surge Satin white exterior paint with Deep Blue upholstery for the interior, marking the first time this color pairing is available for the LC. The convertible comes with the same color scheme, but goes a step further with the blue scheme and comes equipped with a blue fabric soft top.
According to Lexus, the Inspiration Series should begin arriving at dealerships early this fall.
