Lexus LC: First GenerationSpecial Editions

Lexus Debuts Limited-Edition LC 500 in Classic Color Combination

Lexus LC Nori Green

A LC 500 with a Nori Green exterior and two-tone Saddle Tan & Black Amber interior will be the next model in the limited-edition Lexus Inspiration Series. The car will be displayed this weekend at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Taking the shimmering green paint that debuted with the UX crossover and combining it with a tan interior, this LC 500 evokes British Racing Green from the far-flung future.

The 2020 Nori Green LC 500 will be limited to just 100 units across the United States, and below is the full press release,

  • Exclusive Nori Green exterior
  • Two-tone interior in Bespoke Saddle Tan/Black Amber
  • Aniline leather-trimmed seats with Alcantara® door inserts

PLANO, Texas (August 14, 2019) – A style icon since its introduction three years ago, the Lexus LC 500 adds another layer of sophistication this year with the introduction of the limited-edition 2020 Inspiration Series.

Blending the sensational lines of the LC 500 with a classic color palette, this new limited-production LC aims to evoke a more refined, mature coupe without giving up any of the modern performance, technology and style that makes it so desirable.

The transformation starts with its distinctive Nori Green Pearl paint, an exclusive Inspiration Series color for the LC. Subtle in its depth of color, yet eye catching at a glance, the distinctive shade of green compliments every angle of the LC’s stunning design. A set of 21 -inch, two-tone wheels complete the look that elevates the LC’s style profile to another level.

The interior of the LC Inspiration Series is equally striking thanks to a two-tone color scheme that highlights the exceptional design and craftsmanship found in every LC. The 10-way power adjustable seats are trimmed in aniline leather, the softest, highest-grade leather available in the Lexus lineup. The rich Bespoke Saddle Tan color is unique to the Inspiration Series and is complimented by a slightly darker shade of Alcantara® trim on the door panels that adds a soft, inviting feel to the cabin.

In contrast with the tan seats, dark Black Amber leather trim is used on the steering wheel, dashboard, center console and doors. Brown stitching ties the darker leather trim together with the seats in addition to highlighting the fanatical precision of each stitch.

The finishing touch for each 2020 LC 500 Inspiration Series is a custom sill plate that marks the limited- edition nature of each car. Drawing from the geometric shapes found in the rear brake lights, the laser cut plates function as a subtle reminder of this car’s rarity every time you open the door.

There are no mechanical changes to this LC 500, so its naturally-aspirated, 5.0-liter V8 delivers the same 471 horsepower as every LC that has come before it. The 10-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels through a standard limited slip differential that allows for a 0-to-60mph time of just 4.4 seconds.

Limited to just 100 units in the U.S., the 2020 LC 500 Inspiration Series goes on sale this fall. Pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date.

The biggest problem I have with the LC is that every color looks amazing and for each color I want to buy two: in coupe form and convertible form.
Haha, how come I had the exact same sentiment as you before I read your post?

This Nori green combo looks amazing. All 3 inspiration series have had great color execution.

Does anybody have information on upgrades to the 2020 LC? I'm anxious to see if they'll add the Level 2 autonomous driving.

All tan is sick. This two tone with black is less characteristic. Don't understand why Lexus doesn't push more options like all tan, maybe all red. That would definitely make the cars look more luxurious.

Lexus Europe Newsroom and Lexus U.K. Media Site news releases inform us that the 2020 LC Inspiration Series' Continental counterpart is the LC Limited Edition with Terrane Khaki exterior. Notably, at least some European (non-UK) markets will offer alternate Graphite Black and Sonic Titanium exteriors in conjunction with the Saddle Tan and Black Amber interior.

No word on how many copies will be allocated for Europe as a whole, let alone individual European markets, but the LC Limited Edition will go on sale in October 2019 in Continental Europe and in November 2019 in the United Kingdom. The UK's Auto Express suggests the Limited Edition will carry a £2,500 premium over the standard model.

Second best SE so far. Spectral Blue still remains supreme. Is Nori anything close to Peridot Green from while back?
