Lexus India has launched a limited edition sports coupe, LC 500h in the country at a price of Rs 2,15,60,000 (ex-showroom, India). The company claims that the limited-edition model is inspired by the agile flight of birds and airplanes to elevate the driving feel with refined aerodynamics. The new Lexus LC 500H Limited Edition is inspired by a partnership between air racing driver Yoshihide Muroya and Lexus engineers.
As for the interior, the Lexus LC 500h Limited Edition features black Alcantara seats with elegant brown accents and seat belts. In addition, the steering wheel, transmission lever, and door trims are also decorated with black Alcantara accents. Mechanically, it is still powered by a 3.5-liter six-cylinder hybrid engine that generates a combined power of 354 hp at 6,600 rpm and 500 Nm at 3,000 rpm.
The Lexus LC 500h Limited Edition features black trim on the grille, spoiler and 21-inch forged alloy wheels. The car is available in three colors: Nova Glass Flake White, Sonic Silver, and Black. The limited-edition model was built by the same group of engineers that built the LFA supercar. The team found that taking an airplane wing and flipping it improved maneuverability and efficiency at the wingtips. This creates an impressive CFRP rear wing that offers increased steering response and stability without compromising the vehicle’s inherent stability in the LC.

Talking about the launch, P. B. Venugopal, President of Lexus India, said “We are very excited to announce the addition of the exclusive limited edition of the Lexus LC 500h. With its bold, aviation-inspired design language, we are confident that it will be well received by our discerning guests who value and appreciate the quality of finer things in life.”
