LEXUS INTRODUCES DAZZLING NEW LC LIMITED EDITION COUPE
Lexus is introducing a dazzling new addition to its LC flagship coupe range with the launch of the new LC Limited Edition. This special version is distinguished by a vibrant Naples Yellow paint finish that shows off the LC’s award-winning styling to excellent effect.
The colour theme continues in the cabin, where the black door panels feature warm yellow Alcantara inserts. The same yellow shade is also used for contrast stitching details on the white leather seats, instrument panel, steering wheel and centre console arm rest, exemplifying the takumi craftsmanship that is a distinguishing feature of Lexus luxury. The cabin also features a driver’s head-up display, an Alcantara headlining, 13-speaker Mark Levinson Reference audio system and 10-way power adjustment for the front seats, which are wrapped in semi-aniline leather.
Head-turning looks aside, the LC Limited Edition benefits from advanced performance and handling features that are part of the LC Sport+ specification. Agile, secure handling and superb responsiveness are delivered thanks to Lexus Dynamic Handling and Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS) with four-wheel steering, which independently controls front and rear wheel steering angles, and a Torsen limited-slip differential. These advanced systems allow the driver to fully exploit the full potential of the LC’s GA-L global architecture platform with its excellent balance and low centre of gravity.
Special external features include 21-inch forged alloy wheels and a roof and active rear spoiler crafted in lightweight-yet-strong carbon fibre reinforced plastic. The spoiler plays a specific role in maintaining vehicle stability, automatically deploying at speeds above 50mph.
Limited Edition versions of both the LC 500h, with Lexus’s revolutionary self-charging Multi Stage Hybrid System, and the LC 500, powered by a 457bhp naturally aspirated V8 engine with 10-speed automatic transmission, will be available.
The LC Limited Edition will be displayed on the Lexus stand at Paris Motor Show in October. UK sales will be launched in November.
