2021 Lexus LC 500 Inspiration Series

The 2021 version of the LC 500 Inspiration Series is another great looking coupe.

The 2021 color is called Obsidian and its subtle, but works with the aggressive styling of the LC 500.

21-inch wheels are standard.

Also standard are a limited-slip differential and a stiffer rear suspension.

Inside, things are similarly dark to the exterior.

But the design touches and quality materials we expect from Lexus remain.

The Inspiration Series also benefits from a air racing-inspired wing and a carbon-fiber-reinforced-plastic roof.

The sonorous 5.0-liter V8 returns, as does the 10-speed automatic transmission.
