2020 Lexus Lc 500 Inspiration Limited Edition Is Resplendent In Green

2020 Lexus LC 500 Inspiration limited edition is resplendent in green

This year's Lexus LC 500 Inspiration Series walked in fields of gold with Flare Yellow paint outside, a splash of matching Alcantara inside, and white, semi-aniline leather seats. The 2020 version of the LC 500 Inspiration Series takes to emerald seas with exclusive Nori Green Pearl paint — nori being the edible seaweed that tries to make an honest living wrapping sushi or onigiri. This time the two-tone interior doesn't take its cue from the outside, opting for tan and amber contrasts. Lexus says the aesthetic game of dress-up "aims to evoke a more refined, mature coupe," even though we're certain two of the LC 500's most profound attributes are refinement and maturity. Semi-aniline 10-way adjustable seats are stitched up in Saddle Tan leather exclusive to this model, paired with slightly darker Alcantara trim on the door panels. The instrument panel, center console, steering wheel, and the rest of the doors are fitted with Black Amber leather. Brown cross-stitching not only cues the color of the seats, its visibility should earn appreciation for "highlighting the fanatical precision of each stitch." As with the 2019 model, the special 2020 LC 500 will be limited to 100 units in the U.S. A custom, laser-cut sill plate that evokes the geometric shapes found in the taillights will inform everyone crossing the threshold of the coupe's rarity. The package sits on two-tone, 21-inch wheels. The powertrain hasn't been touched, motivation provided by the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 with 471 horsepower shifting through a 10-speed automatic. Lexus says it will release price information closer to the on-sale date later this year. A standard LC 500 costs $92,950 before destination; the 2019 LC 500 Inspiration Series asked $106,210 before destination, so don't expect much change from $110,000 if you're interested.

Lexus Ls 500 Inspiration Series Model Brings Even More Luxury - Autoblog

Lexus LS 500 Inspiration Series model brings even more luxury - Autoblog

Lexus is continuing its trend of making its "Inspiration Series" of cars, and the latest model to get the treatment is the LS 500. Just like all the others before it, this one is mainly an appearance package meant to set it apart from other LS 500s on the road.  The first unique touch is its Deep Garnet paint that isn't available on the normal LS 500. Then you get 20-inch black chrome wheels that go quite nicely with the paint color. Lexus didn't forget the Inspiration Series interior, either. Standard is the ultra-luxe Kiriko glass trim you can get as an option on the regular LS 500. It looked stunning on that car, and it's going to look great combined with the white leather seats on this one, too. Lexus is also giving the Inspiration Series blue LED dash lighting and "Lexus" puddle lamps below the doors. There are only going to be 300 LS 500 Inspiration Series cars sold in America, and they're going to be available to buy this fall. Mechanically, it's exactly the same as a regular LS 500 with the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 making 416 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. As for pricing on this limited-edition model, Lexus isn't saying quite yet. A regular LS 500 similarly equipped is around the $100,000 mark, so look out for something in that range when we do get a price.

JVC 500-Series Connected Camera For Live 4K Broadcasting

Because the demand for live events keeps rising with highly challenging logistics, JVC introduced the JVC 500-Series 4K cameras that are designed from the ground up to improve live broadcast production efficiency.

Streaming live shows with broadcast-quality is extremely challenging because the legacy production flow and hardware were not designed for today’s streaming and often requires many steps in which data is converted, encoded and streamed.

The problem with turntable setups is that while we’re seeing more companies put forward new models with modern designs, a lot of them aren’t quite as updated in terms of tech, meaning that you will still need to connect speakers to them using cables. This is not an issue with good cable management, but can be tricky if you’re looking to setup multi-room audio functionality.

There are many transportation companies that are working towards developing self-driving cars. However many of them seem to be working independently from each other, which admittedly probably isn’t as efficient, although not surprising since we imagine that these companies would want to keep their technological advances a secret.
