Along with the Lexus UX, Lexus will introduce the Lexus RC 300 h F Sport Black Edition at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The special edition model of the Lexus RC features exclusive exterior and interior styling features.
The Lexus RC 300h F Sport Black Edition sports new black styling elements, inspired by the dense colour of Japanese Sumi ink used for centuries in traditional brush painting and calligraphy. The F Sport spindle grille and the LED fog lights have a dark chrome finish, while the 19-inch F Sport alloy wheels have a contrast matt black and bright machined finish. The window mouldings are in black stainless steel, complementing the stealth look achieved by the Graphite Black metallic paint and the other exterior changes.
Inside, the Lexus RC 300h F Sport Black Edition features smooth black leather upholstery for the F Sport seats and steering wheel, with vibrant orange stitching. The door panels also carry the vibrant orange stitching. Also new, are the new wood trim inserts with a deep black colour achieved through staining with Sumi ink and a black headlining.
Getting to the main equipment details, Lexus will offer the Black Edition model with the F Sport Premier Pack specification, which includes a 17-speaker Mark Levinson surround sound system, sunroof, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, as well as 10.3-inch Lexus Premium Navigation infotainment system and power adjustment, heating and ventilation for the front seats.
The Lexus RC 300h F Sport Black Edition is powered by the 164 kW (223 PS) 2.5-litre hybrid powertrain that sends drive to the rear wheels via an electronic continuously variable transmission. In the UK, Lexus has priced the special edition model at INR £45,165 (INR 40,48,133.95) and will commence its sales on 1 May 2018.
