Lexus is augmenting its lineup with two new special edition packages available for the 2012 ES 350 and CT200h models. Pricing for the decked-out cars have been announced, as well the 2012 LS460 with the sport package.
The Touring Edition trim introduced on the LS 460 trickles down to the ES 350, but with some differences. Instead of the 19-inch wheels, body kit, and grille available for the LS 460 Touring, the ES gets 17-inch wheels, navigation system, heated and ventilated front seats, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob. Exterior paint colors include Stargazer Black and Starfire Pearl, and a cool 2,000 units will be available. Models start arriving in November, with a $41,350 sticker price.
Efficiency with a touch of sporty is the CT200h F Sport Special Edition’s theme. Only available on premium models, the compact hybrid will come in a variety of pearly colors: Nebula Gray Pearl, Starfire Pearl, and Tungsten Pearl. Further flair includes 17-inch alloy wheels, mesh front grille, rear spoiler, metal front scuff plates, and of course, the F Sport badge stamped on the exterior. For the interior, F Sport models get aluminum pedals, metallic accents on the dash, and Ocean Blue NuLuxe trimmed seats. Lexus also throws in navigation and premium audio packages, and as an added bonus, a tote and backpack with the F Sport embossed logo. Priced at $38,870, 900 units of the F Sport models go on sale in November.
These special edition options will join the Sport package on the LS460 introduced for the 2010 model year which remains the same for the 2012 LS 460. Offered only for the rear-drive model, the Sport Package features an Obsidian exterior, distinctive front grille, body kit, paddle shifters, 19-inch forged wheels, and Brembo brakes. Lexus says the air suspension, stabilizer bars, and shock absorbers are specially-tuned for this package. This package is limited to 250 units, and bumps up the LS 460’s price to $77,875.
All prices include $875 destination charge.
