Lexus has revealed new vehicles that are sure to be popular in the hidden nation of Wakanda.
Lexus designed two new vehicles inspired by Marvel Studios’ upcoming Black Panther movie. One is the 2018 LC Inspiration Series production car and a concept coupe called the Black Panther Inspired LC.
The limited-edition 2018 Lexus LC Inspiration Series features an exclusive iridescent Structural Blue color and is the first in a line of Inspiration Series vehicles Lexus plans to create for its flagship vehicles.
"The Inspiration Series takes our flagship products and makes them even more exclusive and distinguished," said Brian Bolain, general manager, Lexus marketing in a statement. "Our collaboration with Marvel Studios' 'Black Panther' features a technologically advanced blue LC and was the perfect inspiration for the first car in the Series."
The other vehicle is the Black Panther Inspired LC concept coupe, with “a powertrain that gets an extra boost from vibranium, the mythical ore found only in the Black Panther's home of Wakanda.”
"With this vehicle," Bolain said, "we took the LC Inspiration Series vision one step further into a universe that defies reality."
"This is what it's all about," said Mindy Hamilton, Marvel's SVP of global partnerships & marketing. "We're bringing our two worlds together by letting our imaginations run wild like there are no limits to what's possible. That's what Black Panther and the nation of Wakanda represent in the film, and it's been incredible to work with Lexus as we attempt to re-create that ideology here in our own corner of the universe.”
