Lexus isn't shying away from the spotlight with this bright yellow LC coupe that will go on sale in April. Before it heads to market, it will make an appearance at the Chicago Auto Show in February.

The model features a Flare Yellow paint job, complemented by yellow trim inside the cabin. Along with yellow contrast stitching on the leather seats, instrument panel, console, and glovebox, the interior stands out with yellow Alcantara door inserts. Every model features a special inscription on the carbon fiber door sills. A carbon fiber roof and 21-inch wheels round out the equipment list. But not before Lexus throws in a matching tote bag with yellow stitching.

The 2019 Lexus LC 500 Inspiration Series offers the same engine as the standard model. That is a 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V-8 engine with 471 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque. Power is routed through a 10-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels. It took Motor Trend 4.7 seconds to go from 0-60 mph when it last tested the LC 500.

Lexus is making only 100 copies of this hot yellow coupe. Prices will start at $107,235 including a destination fee.

Inspiration in car building can come from just about any direction and, more often than not, thrives when influence from outside the norm works its way into a builder’s final product, and this 1991 Honda Civic is a prime example of that notion. Borrowing from multiple styles helped create a one-of-a-kind ED chassis Civic that

Fourteen years is an eternity for a chassis to remain in production without a complete redesign. We rarely see cars, even special interest or sportscars eclipsing the 10-year mark in the Japanese vehicle realm with a single chassis. Sure, it happens, but it’s not a common occurrence though Nissan seems to push those limits as

Alright, you know the drill: new car is introduced and immediately it’s regarded as the worst design of all time, a product of car X and car Y creating an unwanted baby, and, of course, the always popular, “they should have asked me to design it.” It’s expected in modern times, especially with social media’s

If there’s a Bentley Continental hovering around your neighborhood, chances are it accelerates only rapidly enough to jump in front of the next guy on its way to Starbucks for that $8 latte. It probably doesn’t have any intention of attacking the clock at a weekend track day, and certainly doesn’t aspire to climb a

Nothing makes Super Street fans angrier than a prototype or rendering and up until now, that’s all we could offer regarding the 11th gen. Honda Civic. The burnt orange Civic sedan prototype that we talked about in November of last year signified a new direction for Honda who, at least in the enthusiast market, spent
