The Lexus LC Hokkaido Edition arrives as a limited-run model for Europe that takes inspiration from the many volcanoes on the large, northern island in Japan. To show express this influence, the vehicles receive a dark red and black colour scheme. Lexus will sell just 40 coupes and 40 convertibles of this special edition in Europe starting in April 2022.
The LC Hokkaido Edition is available in the exterior colours: Flare Red, Sonic Platinum, F White, and Graphite. The vehicles receive a black grille and body trim. The convertible top is available in red or black fabric.

Inside, the seats have black leather upholstery. The centre console, door panels, and the section below the steering wheel are Dark Rose
The island of Hokkaido is also home to the Lexus Shibetsu proving ground where the company develops many of its models. The area is also famous for its forest-covered mountains and hot spring spas.
Prices for the LC Hokkaido Edition in Europe are not yet available but it will go on sale from April 2022.

The Lexus LC Is A Stylish Grand Tourer:
Info from 2020 suggested Lexus gave up on developing a version of the LC with a twin-turbo V8 because it would have sold in very low volumes. A patent filing in 2021 might have given us a glimpse at what Toyota and Lexus were planning for this new powerplant.
Unfortunately, the Lexus LC Hokkaido Edition is not heading to the United States, a company spokesperson tells Motor1.com. However, the company is bringing the LC 500 Inspiration Edition to the US. It has the same black and dark rose interior colour scheme as the Hokkaido model for Europe. The Inspiration is limited to 150 units and costs $104,500 for the coupe and $115,580 for the convertible. It goes on sale this spring.
