[UPDATE] Lexus LC Hokkaido Edition Gets Volcano-Inspired Styling

Lexus Europe will offer 40 coupes, 40 convertibles in this special edition.

The Lexus LC Hokkaido Edition is a limited-run European model. It draws inspiration from the many volcanic eruptions of the northern island of Japan. The vehicles are given a dark red-black color scheme to express this influence. This special edition will be limited to 40 coupes and 40 convertibles in Europe by Lexus starting April 2022.

The exterior colors available for the LC Hokkaido Edition are Flare Red (Sonic Platinum), F White (Graphite), and F White (Graphite). The body trim and grille are black. You can choose from red or black fabric for the convertible top.

The seats are upholstered in black leather. Dark Rose is used for the center console, the door panels and the section below it.

The Lexus Shibetsu testing ground is located on the island of Hokkaido, where many of the company’s models are developed. This area is known for its hot spring spas and forests-covered mountains.

The prices for the LC Hokkaido Edition are still not available in Europe. Motor1.com reached Lexus North America to inquire if the company intended to bring this special model to the market ( answer above).

The LC has received an update for the model year 2022 in the US. The company claims that the modified model’s suspension tuning makes it more agile. The Sport package now features polished 21-inch wheels with black accents.

Bespoke Build is now an option for the LC 500 Sport pack. Customers can choose from a range of colors, upholstery options, wheels, spoilers, and other accessories that aren’t usually available on special edition models. Bespoke Build orders are now allowed to have the carbon-fiber roof.

Prices for the 2022 LC 500 are $94,125 including destination. The LC 500h is $100,125 and the LC 500 convertible is $102,175.

Information from 2020 indicated that Lexus abandoned developing a LC version with a twin turbo V8 as it would have been too expensive. A patent filed in 2021 may have provided a glimpse into what Toyota and Lexus had in mind for this new powerplant.
