2022 Lexus LC 500 Inspiration Series gets red accents, unique wheels

Every year a new model of the Lexus LC 500 Inspiration Series comes out, and 2022 is no exception. You are looking at the latest LC 500 Inspiration series here, and it features a subtle (exclusive model) Iridium exterior paint option.

The yellow, green and blue special edition model options in years past have certainly been more attractive than this one, but don’t think this Inspiration series is completely boring. If you opt for the Convertible instead of the CoupĂ©, Lexus combines a fabric soft top in Dark Rose with the Iridium paint that looks beautiful. This LC also features unique 21-inch wheels that are “3D-machined”, a Lexus first. They have a two-tone appearance, with both light and dark elements.

Those dark elements go well with many of the accents around the car. For example, Lexus uses a special dark finish for the grille, rocker trim, headlight/taillight surround and rear spoiler.

The interior is a black/red two-tone with the red being the same Dark Rose color that is used on the soft top of the Cabrio. You will see Dark Rose used on the seat stitching, perforations, seat belts, center console, doors and dashboard. In addition, every model from the Inspiration series comes with stainless steel sill plates that refer to it as the special model that it is.

Only 150 Inspiration Series models will be produced for 2022, and a badge on the center console recognizes the specific unit it is. The LC 500 Inspiration Series Coupe starts at $105,575, including the $1,075 destination surcharge, and comes equipped as a reasonably loaded Touring package model. Meanwhile, the Convertible starts at $116,655. They will arrive at dealers in late spring.
