The Lexus LC Hokkaido Edition will be split evenly between hard-top and drop-top models.
It comes in the form of the Lexus LC, which is now in its seventh year of production and far into the stage of life when manufacturers resort to the "produce a few in different colours" strategy to maintain interest.
Except, on this, the Hokkaido Edition, Lexus hasn't even gone that far, with 'an special signature black grille and ornamentation' being the only features noted for their uniqueness.
Flare Red, Sonic Platinum, F White, and Graphite are the only body colours offered, with red or black fabric roofs available on Convertible variants.
To complete the look, you'll get 21-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, and 'afterburner-style' taillights.
The interior is a mix of dark reds and blacks, with more red on the driver's side to draw attention to the person at the wheel.
A 3.5-litre V6 hybrid powertrain (coupe only) or Lexus' normally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 provide propulsion (Coupe or Convertible).
In case you forgot, that's 354bhp and 475bhp, respectively; 0-60mph in 4.7secs in either case.
There will be only 40 Hokkaido Editions created in each body type.
What is the origin of the name?
The Shibetsu proving field, located on Hokkaido Island in Northern Japan, is where Lexus created the iconic LFA.
Sales begin in April, and we should have price information by then.
Right now, coupes start at £82,125, while convertibles start at £97,225.
As a result, we expect a limited-run car to be more expensive.
