Lexus Lets The Sun Shine In

27 June 2011

IS 250C and RX 450h help you make the most of summer


  • Ultimate summer drop-top style with IS 250C Limited Edition
  • Panoramic roof option for full hybrid RX 450h SE-I

Whether the summer turns out to be sun-soaked or typically British, Lexus covers all options with its IS 250C coupe-convertible and a panoramic roof option for the RX 450h SE-I luxury crossover.

IS 250C Limited Edition
The IS 250C is one of the most stylish coupe-convertibles on the market, with its quick and quiet deploying electric folding roof that can let you enjoy open-top motoring in a matter of seconds at the touch of a button. To add a dash of exclusivity to its premium specification, it is now available in a special Limited Edition version. Just 50 examples are being made with a distinctive black and red semi-aniline fine leather interior, perfect for cutting a dash when driving with the top down. Each car also comes with a numbered badge denoting its special status, discreetly fixed inside the glovebox.

Based on the regular SE-L model, the Limited Edition comes as standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, eight-way electrically adjustable front seats with built-in ventilation and heating, cruise control, electric one-touch easy access to the rear seats, climate control that automatically adjusts temperature settings when the roof is down and cruise control. The Limited Edition is on sale now, price £39,990 on the road.

RX 450h SE-I with panoramic roof option
For those who want to enjoy the sunshine without the wind-in-the-hair effect, the RX 450h SE-I can be specified with a panoramic glass roof. Seamlessly integrated into the design of the full hybrid crossover, the fixed roof lets light flood into the cabin and gives everyone on board an excellent view. It is available as a build-to-order option, price £900.
