My dislike of what I call the “500 shades of grey” in car colours is well known to regular readers, so I’m delight to announce that Lexus has revealed a dazzling yellow theme in a limited-edition versions of its LC flagship coupe.

Zinnia Yellow exterior paint matched and Mikado Alcantara door inserts are major features. There is also 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 are based on the Lexus LC coupe with enhancement pack and available with V8 petrol and hybrid powertrains.

As with every LC coupe, the premium equipment list includes 21-inch forged alloy wheels, head-up display, Alcantara headlining and 13-speaker Mark Levinson premium surround audio system.

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.
