SEMA and hype go together hand in hand. More so than any other car gathering in the world, it’s a show for the sake of putting on a show. So it only makes sense to pair auto hype with a different realm of hype: film promotion. Lexus paired up with Marvel Studios to make a customized LC500 coupe inspired by the upcoming film Black Panther. There’s even a new graphic novel to go along with it.

Lexus actually made two cars for its Black Panther partnership—one that will be available to buy and one that is not. The one you see above with Chadwick Boseman’s mask on the hood is the one-off. It has a wide-body kit, a custom blue swirl paint job, giant 10-spoke wheels, claw graphic elements, and blue neon underglow (SEMA, bro).

The second car is the first of what Lexus is calling its Inspiration Series, a new line of signature editions for its flagship models. It features Structural Blue paint, which Lexus says took 15 years to develop and takes eight months to make. The rest of the package includes 21-inch forged-aluminum wheels, a model-specific carbon-fiber doorsill plate, and a bespoke white interior. It also comes with a Barneys collection of barware specially made to match the LC. Lexus is offering only 100 examples of the LC Inspiration Series, which has no price yet but will be available in spring of next year.

The final piece of the Lexus SEMA display is a new graphic novel, Black Panther: Soul of a Machine. Like in the movie, the LC makes an appearance in the story that was penned by Marvel comics writer Fabian Nicieza. Only the first four chapters have been released, with the final four set for release on November 12.
