To commemorate its exclusive partnership with The Pebble Beach Company, Lexus introduced its third annual Lexus SC Pebble Beach Edition retractable hardtop convertible. Making its debut at the "Lexus Style in the Fast Lane" fashion show at the world-famous Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the 2006 SC features an exclusive stunning new color combination — Tigereye Mica exterior and camel-color leather interior accented with an espresso dark brown wood trim. Only 500 of the unique Special Editions are slated for production, making the car even more alluring.

The 2006 Pebble Beach SC maintains its dramatic modern design and spectacular luxurious styling features unique to all Lexus models. The Special Edition features custom Pebble Beach badging on the exterior fenders, the center console and embroidered on the floor mats, which complement the exclusive camel-color interior. Additionally, each Special Edition comes with a custom designed (in size and color) luxurious two-piece leather luggage set in rich dark espresso brown with camel-color piping. This travel set fits perfectly in the surprisingly large trunk space of the SC and makes the car ready for a scenic drive around 17-mile Drive.

Of course, one of the most impressive features on the Lexus SC is its ability to hide the roof within the confines of its trunk in a mere 25 seconds, while still maintaining enough room for luggage. All without latches, catches, snaps or covers. And when the top is up, it defies traditional convertible logic by remaining solid, secure and weatherproof. Underneath its beautiful skin, the Lexus SC hosts a 288-horsepower, 4.3-liter V8 engine.

For ultimate listening pleasure, Lexus teamed up with Mark Levinson —designers of the ultimate in custom home audio systems — to create a sound system available exclusively in Lexus vehicles. The SC features a nine-speaker, seven-channel DSP-amplified system, complete with an in-dash, single-feed, six-disc CD auto-changer. What’s truly amazing about this system is that it monitors whether you have the top up or down, and adjusts the frequency equalization, and volume and bass response accordingly. The end result is a quality of sound that truly mimics a live performance.

The 2006 Lexus SC Pebble Beach Edition will be available for purchase in September 2005.
