Lexus LC Yellow Edition puts the luxury coupe in the best light possible
It combines a Flare Yellow exterior paint with a unique interior color scheme
The Lexus LC is without a doubt one of the most striking luxury coupes on the market, but the automaker seems to believe it needs more pizzazz.
Enter the LC Yellow Edition, a limited-run model that will go on sale in Europe later this year after a world debut at the Paris Motor Show in October.
The name is a reference to the car’s defining feature: the Flare Yellow exterior paint finish that puts the LC’s spectacular design in the best light possible. Other distinguishing exterior tweaks include the 21-inch forged alloy wheels and a CFRP active rear spoiler that deploys automatically at speeds above 80 km/h (50 km/h).
The special color scheme carries over to the cabin, where the black door panels feature warm yellow Alcantara inserts. The same shade is easy to spot in the contrast stitching details on the white leather seats, instrument panel, steering wheel and center console arm rest.
The interior is also accessorized with an Alcantara headliner, a driver’s head-up display, and 10-way power adjustment for the front seats in semi-aniline leather.
Besides the aesthetic updates, the Lexus LC Yellow Edition is more performance-focused than the base model thanks to the LC Sport+ specification that comes standard. The special edition model benefits from advanced performance and handling features including Lexus Dynamic Handling, Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS) with four-wheel steering, and a Torsen limited-slip differential.
Customers can have the Yellow Edition package with any of the LC engines: the LC 500h Multi Stage Hybrid System and the LC 500 naturally aspirated V8.
