TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ --

Building on strong sales of two popular models, Lexus announced today that it will offer special editions of the ES 300 luxury sedan and RX 300 mid-size sport utility vehicle (SUV).

With its entry into the luxury market more than a decade ago, the ES 300 has served as the luxury and value benchmark in the segment. Lexus has kept this model fresh with constant improvements, giving it a new powertrain in model-year 1999 and several safety, luxury and design enhancements in model-year 2000.

The RX 300 established a whole new trend in the luxury market when it arrived on the scene in March 1998. With the combination of luxury and sport, it has quickly become Lexus' best-selling model with 89,864 units sold in 2000.

ES 300 Coach Edition

The 2001 ES 300 Coach Edition features a distinctive interior, exclusive wheels and badging, and some of the ES 300's most popular options as standard equipment. Surrounding the interior of the ES 300 is Coach perforated leather on the seats, door and steering wheel, as well as custom Bird's Eye Maple interior trim. The signature Coach logo is featured on the front-center armrest and embroidered on the floor mats. Additionally, the power tilt-and-slide moonroof with sunshade and the in-dash six-disc CD autochanger are included.

The ES 300 Coach Edition comes in three colors: Black Onyx with black or ivory interior, Diamond White with ivory interior and Oyster Pearl with ivory interior. It also sports special dark silver, carbon-polished wheels, as well as black chrome Coach and Lexus ES 300 exterior badges.

As a special bonus, Coach will provide a medium size cabin bag from the company's Travel Collection to each ES 300 Coach Edition customer.

The ES 300 Coach Edition is a limited production special edition and will go on sale at the beginning of February with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $34,395. The exclusive options in the Coach Edition represent a $4,890 value for a cost of $3,000.

In addition to offering unique luxury and value, the 2001 ES 300 provides powerful performance with an aluminum 3.0-liter double-overhead cam V6 engine which employs Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i). It creates higher horsepower, lower emissions and improved fuel economy while boosting low-rpm torque for better acceleration.

RX 300 Silversport

An enhanced sporty image will contribute to sustaining the presence the RX 300 has established in the luxury SUV segment. The new Silversport embraces a dynamic interior, sport suspension and custom black pearl finish replaces chrome badging.

The 2001 RX 300 Silversport comes in two colors: Black Onyx and Millennium Silver, both with black interiors. Brushed aluminum trim replaces the wood trim, and perforated leather covers the seats and steering wheel.

In addition, a one-touch open/close moonroof with sunshade and an in-dash six-disc CD autochanger are standard features on the Silversport Edition.

A Euro-tuned Sport Suspension and custom front grille add the final touches to the Silversport Edition. The enhanced suspension offers sporty stability and control with less body roll around curves, while maintaining exceptional ride comfort. With its brushed aluminum, high sport-performance look, the grille rounds out this dynamic new version of the RX 300.

The special edition RX 300 Silversport will go on sale in April. Pricing will be announced at a later date.

Powered by a 3.0-liter V6 engine which employs Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i), the RX 300 Silversport meets the challenge of the sport enthusiast with quick response and strong pulling power.
