    2012: Year of Special Editions

    Let's face it, some model years are just more special than others. We're particularly excited for 2012. Lexus has generously spread the love across the model range. Let's look at some of our favorite Special editions this year.

    ES350 Special Edition

    You can get this car in Stargazer Pearl (Black) or Starfire Pearl (white) with, for the first time in a Lexus, saddle (brown) leather. It comes loaded with navigation, brown walnut wood steering wheel and shift knob, 17" liquid graphite wheels, and heated and cooled front seats. This is, perhaps, the most elegant ES ever offered by Lexus.

    CT200 F-Sport Edition

    We've mentioned the CT F-Sport on Kaizen before now, but this is our first chance to show if off in a stunning new color: Nebula Gray Pearl. It is also available in Starfire Pearl (white) and Tungsten Pearl (silver). It comes loaded with 17" liquid-silver-finish F-Sport wheels, F-Sport anti-sway bars, F-Sport lowering springs, blue-trimmed F-Sport floor mats, and an exclusive, Ocean Blue NuLux, eco-friendly interior. Proud owners may choose to spring for the matching Tumi luggage. We will definitely have a few of these allocated to our store, so call in your order now- they're sure to sell out quickly.

    LS460 Sport Special Edition

    Here's the heavy hitter of the bunch. This car takes everything from the svelte LS460 Sport and kicks it up a notch. The Sport Special Edition comes loaded with Obsidian (black) paint, two-tone black and beige leather interior with contrasting stitching, matte, dark-brown ash wood trim, 19" forged wheels, paddle-shifters, sport grille and exterior trim, navigation, Brembo brakes, Intuitive Parking Assist, power-assisted trunk, sport-tuned air suspension, Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS), sport front seats, heated rear seats, power rear sunshade, and more. If you're a now-compromises sort of person, this rare beast is just the ticket.


    One Owner's Challenge

    One owner set out to recreate a classic Lexus ad from the 1990's. These are the results of his efforts:

    But in the tradition of Lexus ads that the original version established, the champagne balancing act was real:

    Inspired by witnessing this Lexus owner's bold enthusiasm, Lexus went straight to work -the same week- to prove that an unrehearsed crew could, in fact, recreate the balancing act with not just a new Lexus LS but also with a 1990 model! The key is to make sure the car is parked on level ground. Enjoy this amazing clip!


    A Self-Repairing Car!

    Well, at least the paint repairs itself. The paint on the Lexus LS has always been the industry gold standard. The 2010 LS460, LS460L, and LS600h have a remarkable new feature:

    This structure maintains luster in a way conventional paint cannot match.

    The technology's press release states:

    "The new coat features an ingredient that encourages closer molecular bonding, resulting in a denser structure than conventionally possible.  This gives the coat flexibility and elasticity, making it less prone to damage and more resistant to light and acid, and giving it the ability to self-restore after deformation."

    As of now, the new clear coat is not available on any other Lexus models.

    With so many high milage LS cars still on the road, the self-healing paint promises to keep them looking as well as they drive.
