2008 Lexus RX350 and ES350 Pebble Beach Collection

For those who want to own a more exclusive Lexus (and golf clubs, a cutlery set, or a luggage set), the luxury automaker introduced its RX350 and ES350 Pebble Beach Collection of vehicles at the Chicago auto show.

Featuring unique wheels, special interior and exterior colors (Truffle Mica), logo floormats, and badging, Lexus’ Pebble Beach cars also come with three distinct merchandise packages, such as the Callaway Golf Experience, the Travel Package or the Epicurean Encounter. Only 6000 examples of each vehicle will be produced – this year marking the first time the Pebble Beach Collection includes the RX350 and ES350.

Lexus also releases a sixth version of the SC430 Pebble Beach model this summer, while a LS600hL Pebble Beach debuts this fall.

Lexus says the goal of the Pebble Beach Collection is “to evoke the feeling of exclusivity that comes with an excursion to the Pebble Beach Resorts.”

Knives and floormats surely do just that.
