Lexus And Adidas Partner On A Custom RX 500h Inspired By The Black Panther

A superhero must ride with style, so Lexus and Adidas partnered to create the unique RX 500h F Sport with inspiration from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. There’s a limited edition T-shirt to include.

Adidas’ School for Experiential Education in Design and the Lexus Calty Design Research center collaborate on the unique RX 500h. The work is an offshoot of the Adidas Wakanda Forever Collection that envisions how sportswear for Wakanda’s national athletics team would look like.

The color motif on the RX consists of purple stripes on a black background. The base of the hood on the windshield has gold diamonds that resemble the claw necklace of the Black Panther. Metallic gold accents appear on the lower fascia, door handles and trim around the windows. On the tail, a badge reads “Vibe-Branium” in the Wakandan alphabet.

Interior materials received a complete overhaul. Wakanda-inspired gold molding covers the seat cushions, door panels and steering wheel rim. The headrest uses the same Carbon 3d printed material on the midsection of the Adidas 4DFWD shoe. The center console consists of laser cut wood and gold trim. On the infotainment screen, “Lexus” appears in the Wakandan alphabet.

Car-matched T-shirts are only available to select influencers. On the front there is the saying “Educate Women, Educate the Nation” in Wakandan. The back has the symbol of Vibranium on the periodic table in a stylish mix of purple, black, and gold.

The Lexus RX 500h uses a 2.4-liter four-cylinder hybrid assisted engine with a total system output of 366 horsepower (273 kilowatts) and 406 pound-feet (551 Newton-meters). It reaches 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 5.9 seconds and has a top speed of 130 mph (209 kph). For the 2023 model year, prices for this model start at $62,750, including destination fees.

The 2023 model also gets the plug-in hybrid RX 450h+. The brand announced more details about it later.
