2018 LC 500 – Inspiration Series in Structural Blue by Lexus
Display Location: Lexus, #21601, Central Hall

The first vehicle in Lexus’ Inspiration Series is a limited-edition 2018 Lexus LC, celebrating the attributes of sophistication, performance and innovation embodied by the Black Panther character, King T’Challa, and his home country of Wakanda. With only 100 slated to be sold in the U.S., the Lexus LC Inspiration Series features a first-of-its-kind paint technique called Structural Blue. Inspired by the morpho butterfly, the paint is developed through an eight-month process. The Inspiration Series LC will be available in Spring 2018.

Black Panther Inspired LC Concept by West Coast Customs
Display Location: Lexus, #21601, Central Hall

Fit for a Super Hero who is also a king, this vehicle is part Lexus Takumi craftsmanship, part Wakandan vibranium engineering and all badass. This concept vehicle incorporates (mythical) vibranium into its very core to provide added boost. Much like Black Panther’s uniform, the sheet metal of the Black Panther Inspired LC is reinforced with a layer of vibranium weave, making the vehicle almost entirely bulletproof. Top-secret refinement processes also allow for a self-sustaining fueling component (vibranium-powered core) that enhances the Black Panther Inspired LC’s driving dynamics.
  • Pulsating underbody glow
  • Side-view mirror design based on a panther’s claw with instinctual positioning technology to align with driver’s eyeline
  • Black Panther mask inlay on hood with vibranium-powered core indicator nodes
  • Vibranium-infused self-healing paint treatment
  • Customized body-widening kit
  • System controlled by unique Wakandan B-CPU (Brain/Computer Interface) creating a symbiotic relationship between the vehicle and its driver
  • Remote Pilot Kimoyo Bead Interface allows the Black Panther Inspired LC to be driven remotely from control stations within Birnin Zana
