Space Orange LC500h "Matte Prototype"

This "matte prototype" LC500h in Space Orange is my new favorite color. Orange accents on the inside really brought it together.


"Lexus has unveiled the LC 500h 'Matte Prototype' in scoop. A new prototype of the flagship coupe of the brand. The creation is another example of the brand's effort to keep innovating, this time using special colors with original textures.

The prototype sports a spectacular matte color called 'Space orange' (Orange Space), which is inspired by the orange tones that can be seen when looking towards the Sun in clear sunsets.

The spectacular color, with a matte finish, allows the LC 500h to project a powerful personality, which is further enhanced by the contrast that is produced by the striking 21-inch semi-matt black wheels. Another characteristic of the more special exterior is the roof and the active rear spoiler made of carbon fiber.

The use of the color 'Space Orange' continues inside the passenger compartment, where it has been used as a contrast on the instrument panel, the steering wheel and the sides of the doors.

The prototype incorporates the revolutionary auto-rechargeable multi-stage hybrid system from Lexus, making it unique in its segment. Lexus's renowned auto-rechargeable hybrid technology allows the LC 500h to recharge while traveling, without requiring cables or plugs. Its motorization stands out for its efficiency, reduced consumption, low noise and softness."

We have two orange vehicles now, and our track Lotus has plenty orange including the interior. I’d post pics except this site makes it too challenging.

Like robdinero, I’m no fan of flat finishes. Looks like primer.

But really like the interior. The contrasting orange is prevalent yet subdued.

The last picture shows something of a wing.

Gotcha, Iíd not seen it from that angle. And donít have the performance version.

When does it deploy other than per manual? Our Continentalís pops up at 90, so it means something.

I believe mine pops up at about 50mph, probably more for show at that low speed.

I think Lexus should take after what Novel does.

The builds they complete look good enough to be factory upgrades.



They're the closest thing we'll get to the Brabus of Lexus if you know what I mean.
