Lexus shows two contrasting concepts at Pebble Beach

Toyota’s luxury division is presenting two completely different models at Pebble Beach during Monterey Car Week. Lexus is showing some of its hand regarding its vision for models of the future with the debut of the UX 250h Concept in particular.

Both the UX 250h Concept and the LC Inspiration Series Concept are one-off variants of existing production models, the LC sports car and the new UX 250h SUV.

The LC Inspiration Series

The LC is actually the second prototype to be produced under the Inspiration Series banner. The personalized, head-turning creation features a Flare Yellow paint finish and unique 21-inch black wheels, as well as a carbon-fibre roof and an active rear spoiler.

Inside the LC, the doors feature yellow Alcantara inserts and stitching of the same colour on the leather seats and instrument panel.

The UX 250h

The approach is rather different in the case of the UX 250h SUV. It features a striking blue paint finish and the roof has specially designed rails; on those rails sits an F Sport-badged carbon-fibre road bike. Other modifications include a lip kit, custom wheels, modified suspension and new exhaust.

The vehicles will be on display throughout Monterey Car Week at Pebble Beach.

For the moment, no information has been forthcoming from Lexus regarding any future plans for the two one-off variants. Keep in mind that for many manufacturers, events like these serve to gauge the interest of consumers for a specific potential model or variant.
