Lexus LC 500h Limited Edition announced

A Limited Edition version of the Lexus LC 500 has been revealed, with first deliveries expected in November

A Lexus LC 500h Limited Edition variant has been announced, bringing with it a number of exterior and interior upgrades.

Finished in exclusive Terrane Khaki paint, the Limited Edition rides on 21-inch alloy wheels that feature a two-tone colour finish.

Also included are customised scuff plates with a laser-cut design “inspired by the geometric shapes” of the tail-lights.

Inside, the 10-way power-adjustable seats are covered in Saddle Tan-coloured L-aniline leather, while Alcantara features on the door panels.

The steering wheel, dashboard, centre console are finished in Amber leather and are held together with brown stitching.

In terms of technology, the Limited Edition car gets the same luxury kit as the standard versions of the LC 500h: this includes a colour head-up display, Lexus’ Safety System+, sat nav, 13-speaker Mark Levinson audio, dual-zone climate control, a glass roof and aluminium sport pedals.

The 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine and electric motor remain untouched, with the hybrid system delivering 354bhp and a 0-62mph time of five seconds flat.

Meanwhile, the non-hybrid, LC 500 Limited Edition shaves three-tenths off that figure, with its 5.0-litre V8 engine delivering 457bhp.

The Lexus LC 500h Limited Edition is available to order now and production is limited to the remainder of 2019 only. The first deliveries will take place in November.

Prices are set to be revealed soon, although they’re unlikely to be significantly higher than the current starting price of £78,150: DrivingElectric expects to see a figure somewhere north of £80,000.
