Lexus LC Limited Edition announced
Lexus set to launch an exclusive version of the LC 500 coupe in October
The flagship Lexus LC 500 sports coupe will be offered in a new limited-edition form. It's due to be displayed at the Paris Motor Show in October, ahead of its general release soon after.
The Lexus range offers a broad spread of cars, including the Lexus NX SUV, Lexus CT executive hybrid and Lexus LS luxury saloon. It's headed by the sleek and powerful Lexus LC coupe, which is already an expensive and exclusive car, but the LC Limited Edition promises to be even more so.
Based on Sport+ Specification and available in 457bhp V8 petrol LC 500 or 349bhp hybrid LC 500h forms, the Limited Edition is distinguished by its special Naples Yellow paint finish. Inside, there are yellow Alcantara suede highlights to its black interior door panels, and contrasting yellow stitching on the centre console, steering wheel and white leather seats.
The Lexus LC Limited Edition comes standard with every feature the range can offer, including a 13-speaker stereo by Mark Levinson, head-up display and Torsen limited-slip differential, all of which are optional on regular models. This added kit joins an already-lengthy list of exotic equipment, which includes an active carbon-fibre rear spoiler, four-wheel steering, 21-inch alloy wheels and the brand's Lexus Dynamic Handling package.
Prices have yet to be announced, but are expected to follow the LC Limited Edition's debut at the Paris Motor Show in October.
