Lexus Shines With Limited-Edition LC Flagship Coupe – Nov 28, 2018 – Aichi, Japan (Techreleased) – Lexus has revealed a dazzling yellow exterior and interior theme to distinguish exclusive new limited-edition versions of its LC flagship coupe.
The latest luxury additions to the range sport vibrant Zinnia Yellow exterior paint matched with a bespoke luxury cabin featuring yellow Mikado Alcantara® door inserts.
Lexus designers have used the same yellow shade for contrast stitching on the white semi-aniline leather-accented seats, instrument panel, steering wheel and centre console armrest.
The limited-edition variants, available with the exhilarating performance of V8 petrol or self-charging hybrid powertrains, are based on the foremost LC coupe with enhancement pack.
Lexus Australia’s chief executive Scott Thompson said the head-turning looks of the limited-edition LC were accentuated by advanced performance, agile handling and superb responsiveness.
“The exquisite quality of the vibrant Zinnia Yellow paint finish shows off the LC’s award-winning styling to stunning effect,” Mr Thompson said.
“Inside the hand-crafted cabin, warm yellow inserts and detail stitching exemplify the Takumi craftsmanship that is a distinguishing feature of Lexus luxury,” he said.
“Drivers of these exclusive new models will also be treated to the full potential of the LC’s rigid platform with its excellent balance and low centre of gravity.”
Adopting incremental improvements across the LC range, Lexus has fine-tuned the powertrains for enhanced drivability and recalibrated the adaptive variable suspension for even greater ride comfort.
Another welcome addition is wider availability of the Chrysalis Blue interior trim. Previously offered on the Morphic Blue limited-edition variants released earlier this year, the stunning colour scheme combines dynamic orange, blue and white hues.
All versions of the LC are equipped with Lexus Safety System+, a collection of active safety features that can help the driver avoid an accident or help lessen the consequences of a collision.
The system uses a camera and a millimetre-wave radar to monitor the road ahead for potential hazards and collision risks. This provides the LC with a pre-collision safety system which is designed to detect vehicles and pedestrians, all-speed adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist with lane departure warning and a sway warning function, and automatic high beam.
The additional features for the regular LC models bring a minimal $200 price increase. The LC 500 and LC 500h Limited Edition models are priced at the same $15,000 premium as the enhancement pack*.
