Here comes the Black Panther's car

Almost in the entire of Marvel Studio's superhero movie, all the defenders of Earth have a vehicle that suits the superhero characters who use it. Noted, ranging from IronMan/Tony Stark who looks dashing with the Audi R8, Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff who relies on the Corvette C7, up to Captain America with a legendary Harley-Davidson Street 750 motorcycle.

Now the turn of superhero character Black Panther also got a luxury coupe car named Lexus LC. Not just any given LC, but the figure of Lexus LC Inspiration Series that made of Lexus LC 500.

Yes, as for promoting these Lexus LC special edition and Black Panther movies, Marvel Studio and Lexus make a special collaboration to present these special Black Panther's Lexus LC that will shown off two vehicles (one for limited production and one as a design study) in the world's largest aftermarket event, the SEMA Show held in Las Vegas in the near future.

In appearance, it seems there is an all-out overhauled when compared with the existing Lexus coupe. Especially the triple LED on the front that became the differentiator. But the congenital Lexus grille will never be left to be the basic DNA of a Lexus car. As qouted of Motortrend on October 30, 2017, the 2018 Lexus LC 500 packs a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8 engine good for 471 hp and 379 lb-ft of torque, no wonder if the coupe hitting 100 kph from a standstill in 4.8 seconds.

These Black Panther's Lexus LC 500 gets a special Structural Blue paint job inspired by iridescent morpho butterflies, with the image of superhero mask emblazoned on the hood. Not only that, the body part is also made to be wider than the standard variant in order to accommodate the larger rims as well. The dashing appearance of the car looks more completed with the fixed spoiler mounted on the car's stern.

The concept receives more blatant cues from the movie. The fictional metal vibranium is said to be used in the powertrain to provide extra boost and in the exterior paint to make the car immune to bullets.
