"There is one scene I'm not happy about. There's a scene when [King T'Challa] slid across the hood and left a huge scratch on the car," said Sato. "What is wrong with you, that's my baby! Why would you do that? You are crazy!"

With a plethora of underbody neon lights, weird claw-like things on the side mirrors, and a swanky paint job to match the ridiculous 24-inch wheels, the LC is as far from elegant as can be.

"We partnered with Marvel because of their story-telling capabilities. The LC 500 portrays Lexus' transition from our old slogan of "Pursuit of perfection" to "Experience amazing," and so does the Black Panther," Cooper Ericksen, Lexus vice-president of marketingtold The Drive. "It's a great combination of two names that stand up for the same things: performance, technology, and class."

Lexus shows the 2019 ES before Beijing debut .
After revealing the grille of the 2019 Lexus ES last week, Lexus posted a single photo of the whole shebang this morning. Only two sentences accompanied the image: "The all-new ES springs from a reimagined luxury equation. Engaging design, athletic performance, and renowned refinement transform Lexus's most popular sedan." We could be forced to wait until the Beijing Motor Show reveal on April 25 for substantial info on that transformation, but based on what we already suspect, the coming ES has big britches to fill.
