CHICAGO – Lexus is rolling out Pebble Beach Edition packages for more vehicles in its lineup, according to www.edmunds.com. Previously, Toyota’s upscale brand only made the Pebble Beach Edition package available on the SC 430, one of the more expensive vehicles in its lineup. The 2008 Lexus SC 430 with the Pebble Beach Edition package is priced at $68,655, including a $795 destination charge. But starting in mid-February, buyers can order a Pebble Beach Edition on the Lexus RX 350 — $42,175 for a front-wheel-drive RX 350 with the Pebble Beach Edition package and $43,575 for an all-wheel-drive RX 350 with the Pebble Beach Edition Package.
The RX 350 package adds 18-inch wheels and chrome grille, a color-keyed rear spoiler, special badging, and special interior trim. The RX 350 Pebble Beach Edition will be available in three colors: classic silver metallic, obsidian black and truffle mica.
In mid-March, Lexus will roll out an ES 350 Pebble Beach Edition, followed by an LS 600h L Pebble Beach Edition in the fall. A sixth version of the SC 430 Pebble Beach Edition will be introduced this summer, according to www.edmunds.com.
The ES 350 Pebble Beach Edition gets seven-spoke 17-inch wheels with a liquid graphite finish. The cabin gets semi-aniline leather and a wood-and-leather steering wheel. Pricing has not yet been announced on the ES 350 Pebble Beach Edition.
