Japanese Lexus LC customers will soon have a wider choice of exterior and interior colors, including a stunning navy blue option exclusive to the LC 500 Cabriolet. The announcement came on Thursday along with news of some minor handling improvements.
The Marine Blue selection adds a tidy navy blue lid to the LC droptop, paired with a matching interior. However, the entire cockpit is not smeared in blue. Instead, the cobalt hue has been carefully applied to the steering wheel, dashboard, gear selector and parts of the door panels. Most of the interior is actually white, which gives the two-tone cabin an elegant nautical feel.
Additionally, Lexus is introducing two new colors to Japan's LC palette: Sonic Iridium, which looks like another silver variant, and Terrain Khaki Mica Metallic, which looks like the gorgeous Nori Green special edition we got in the US and the we previously had the convertible exclusively, is now available for the LC500 and LC500h Coupé. Buyers can also tick a box for new orange calipers.
Lexus says they have also improved the steering feel, ride quality, and controllability of the LC when cornering at high g by making minor adjustments to the coil springs, dampers, and stabilizers. In conjunction with optimizations to the variable ratio steering settings and dynamic rear steering systems, Lexus has improved overall responsiveness. After all, the panoramic roof of the LC Coupé now uses tinted privacy glass.
The Lexus LC menu has always been slightly different in the US and Japan regions. For example, we get three interior trim options - tan, black, and a red-on-black two-tone. Even before Marine Blue, Japan had a fourth, black and orange. It's not quite as Halloween-y as it sounds to American ears; the orange is rather saddle brown.
Lexus hasn't said if Marine Blue (or any of the other enhancements) will be coming to the US, but the LC will likely get an update soon. If the new interior is part of the package we won't complain.
