Lexus introduces new LC Yellow Edition coupe

Lexus has introduced a new addition to its LC coupe range with the launch of the new LC Yellow Edition.

The new coupe sports a Flare Yellow paint finish that shows off the LC’s award-winning styling. The colour theme continues in the cabin, where the black door panels are enhanced by warm yellow Alcantara inserts.

The warm yellow shade is also featured in contrast stitching details on the white leather seats, instrument panel, steering wheel and centre console arm rest. The cabin also features a driver’s head-up display, an Alcantara headlining and 10-way power adjustment for the front seats in semi-aniline leather.

According to Lexus, the LC Yellow Edition benefits from advanced performance and handling features that are part of the LC Sport+ specification. Agile, secure handling and superb responsiveness 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.

Lexus also states that 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.

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 company says that the spoiler plays a specific role in maintaining vehicle stability, automatically deploying at speeds above 80 km/h.

The Yellow Edition versions of both the LC 500h, with Lexus’ revolutionary self-charging Multi Stage Hybrid System, and the LC 500, powered by a 477 DIN hp naturally aspirated V8 engine with 10-speed automatic transmission, will be available.
