India has launched a limited-edition model of its sports coupe- the LC500h.
Inspired by the graceful flight of birds and airplanes, this special edition
focuses on a refined aerodynamic performance that aims to elevate sense of
LC500h Limited Edition will be available at a starting price of Rs 2,15,60,000. The new LC Limited Edition is
inspired by a partnership between air race pilot Yoshihide Muroya and Lexus engineers.
The Lexus team worked on different ways to create efficiencies for Muroya's
aircraft, from refining the grip design of the control column to maximizing
aerodynamics efficiencies using testing data learned on Lexus automobiles. The
partnership ultimately assisted Muroya on his path to winning the 2017 Red Bull
Air Race World Championships.
a team consisting some of the same engineers who built the Lexus LFA supercar
on board, Lexus took a unique approach by turning a preconceived concept on its
head – literally. They found that taking an airplane wing and flipping it
upside down improved maneuverability and efficiency at the wingtips. This led
to the creation of an exquisite carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) rear
wing that realizes greater steering responsiveness and stability without
disrupting the LC’s inherent vehicle stability. The LC 500h Limited Edition
meets the demanding production quality expected of Lexus vehicles and offers a
captivating design in harmony with exhilarating performance.
Limited Edition is available in three striking colours that accentuate the
design of the vehicle - White Nova Glass Flake, Sonic Silver, and Black.

styled 21-inch forged wheel, exclusive to the LC Limited Edition, aids in lower
drag co-efficient with the same level of rigidity.
on 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 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.”
