Top 3 Features of the 2019 Lexus LC Yellow Edition

The Lexus LC 500, even without the exclusive additions, is already a powerful and beautiful car. It slots between a capable touring car and an everyday supercar. But though the LC 500 has its own identity, that didn’t stop the brand from treating it with more features.

Exterior

The color outside is, of course, an eye-catching vibrant Flare Yellow. It is really just yellow on the surface with a hint of a mango-like color to it, too. Lexus also fitted this special edition with extra aero bits like the carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic rear spoiler. This helps in the LC’s stability, especially when it is going at high speeds. Completing the whole look is a set of 21-inch forged alloy wheels.

Interior

The cabin is slathered with yellow color. The interior is wrapped in a generous amount of semi-Aniline leather and Alcantara in colors black, white, and warm yellow. The color schemes used are less vibrant than the exterior, but they are still effective in providing the luxury touch that Lexus is known for. Most of the times, Toyota’s luxury brand could not compete with its European counterpart but when it comes with special edition models like this one, Lexus could battle with the best.

The 10-way power-adjustable front seats are dressed in semi-aniline leather while the headlining above is all wrapped in Alcantara. Between these, there are yellow Alcantara inserts in the door panels and warm yellow contrast stitching on the white leather seats, instrument panel, steering wheel, and center console armrest.

Powertrain

The Yellow Edition is available either in LC 500 or LC 500h. The LC 500 is powered by 5.0-liter, naturally aspirated, V-8 that produces 471 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. It can go from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, and it has a top speed of 168 mph.

The LC 500h uses a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that combines with a pair of electric motors and a lithium-ion battery. It can produce 354 horsepower, enough to go from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.7 seconds. It has a top speed of 155 mph.

As a pure-bred Lexus special edition, the Yellow Edition has Dynamic Handling and Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS). The system allows four-wheel steering, enabling the driver to independently control the front- and rear-wheel-steering angles.

The Liberty Walk Lexus LC500 is Just Wild

Japan-based Liberty Walk just released its new custom body kits for the latest Lexus LC500. The new package adds more to the sporty exterior of the car.

There two versions to choose from in the new body kits of Liberty Walk for the LC500. There are also two options for the materials used in the upgrades.

Exterior Upgrades

According to Liberty Walk, the visual enhancements offered by the body kits include a new front diffuser, side diffusers, rear diffuser, rear wing and wide fenders. Buyers will have the option to select either the fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) or carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) materials for the package.

From the looks of it, the add-ons really bring the base of the car very near the ground. So, better look out for some speed bumps along the way. The photos reveal a new set of Advan wheels and blue-tipped quad tailpipes too, which really complement the body kit. There are some decals in the car as well, including Liberty Walk logos, Advan logos, and letterings on the doors that read “Imagine all the people living life in peace.” The quote was lifted from John Lennon’s song titled “Imagine”.

Pricing

The first version of the body kit costs $15,650 for the FRP and $19,440 for the CFRP. The second version is priced $13,380 for the FRP and $16,740 for the CFRP. It should be noted that the LC500 already has a starting price of $92,995 (including shipping).

Interior

The interior of the LC500 is not covered by the package, but we think that the stock carbon fiber and Alcantara materials used inside the car will go well with the Liberty Walk body kit.

Engine

The engine remains in its factory configuration. As a recap, the LC500 is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 with 471 hp and 379 lb-ft of torque. Combined with a 10-speed automatic, it can go from zero to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds. Its top speed is capped at 168 mph.
