Lexus Malaysia has announced a limited-edition Lexus ES 250 Luxury variant that features two exclusive colours, Deep Blue Mica and Sleek Ecru Metallic. Only 50 units will be available, with 25 cars each in the unique shades.

The specials will also feature a new, exclusive matte-finished Bamboo interior trim, which is paired off with a Topaz Brown interior colour scheme (already available for the variant) in the limited series run. Aside from the two new exterior colours, the ES is available in Red Mica Crystal Shine, Sonic Quartz, Graphite Black GF, Platinum Silver Metallic, Sonic Titanium and Amber CS.

No mechanical changes to the facelifted version of the car, which was launched here last August. It’s powered by a 2AR-FE 2.5 litre four-cylinder engine with 181 hp at 6,000 rpm and 235 Nm of torque at 4,100 rpm. The Dual VVT-i unit is paired with a six-speed automatic gearbox and power goes to the front wheels. Performance numbers include a 0-100 km/h time of 9.8 seconds and a 207 km/h top speed.

The neat news is that the limited edition ES 250 Luxury with the new colours won’t cost a sen more than a regular ES 250 Luxury, which goes for RM293,900 (on-the-road with GST, before insurance), the price that was announced on January 1 when Lexus Malaysia revealed a price increase for a number of models in its line-up.
