    To entertain children and adults during lockdown, the team at Lexus has created some colouring templates of the Lexus LC 500 sports coupe Finished designs can be shared with Lexus on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram by including the @LexusUK tag in your post. Lexus LC 500 Super GT You can create your dream racing car livery with the Lexus LC 500 Super GT car colouring template, but remember to stay within the (racing) lines. This illustration also includes racers from, BMW, Audi and Aston Martin because it commemorates the 2019 race when Super GT cars from Japan and cars from the German DTM series competed against each other for the first time. The first of these so-called ‘Dream Races’ was held at Fuji Speedway, with Nick Cassidy taking victory in the Lexus. Lexus LC Road Car If high-octane motorsport isn’t your thing, there’s a template that’s much more relaxing featuring a Lexus LC road car in two idyllic settings. The style of all these Lexus illustrations is inspired by Ukiyoe, which are traditional Japanese woodblock prints from the Edo period (1603 – 1868). About the Lexus LC 500 The Lexus LC 500 is Lexus’s flagship luxury coupe It was the first Lexus to be built on Lexus’s front engine/rear-wheel drive Global Architecture – Luxury (GA-L) platform It is the faithful evolution of the award-winning LF-LC concept car The LC 500 has a 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine and 10-speed direct shift automatic transmission.

    Lexus cars have again been declared the most dependable you can buy with the brand taking the top ranking in the newly published Which? car reliability survey The consumer champion’s detailed study produced its findings from the real-world experiences and opinions of more than 47,000 UK motorists, covering almost 59,000 individual vehicles. Lexus secured its leading status with a fault-free report for the CT 200h hatchback and a near-perfect performance from the NX mid-size SUV. The results covered vehicles from new to three years old and three to eight years old. The glowing report from Which? states: “Got the money for a Lexus? Do it. You might just forget what a mechanic’s waiting room looks like.” A key factor in Lexus’s impressive performance is its self-charging hybrid technology. Which? highlights the proven durability and mechanical simplicity of the electrified system in making Lexus cars more resilient to faults. Lexus introduced hybrid to the UK premium market in 2005, since when it has constantly improved its performance and efficiency and extended it across its entire model range; today hybrids account for 99.8 per cent of its UK new car sales. Ewan Shepherd, Director of Lexus in the UK said: “The results of the thorough research carried out by Which? are a further validation of the lasting quality and craftmanship engineered into every Lexus model. Making cars that people can rely on, year after year, is fundamental to our business and goes hand-in-hand with our commitment to always providing the highest standards of customer service.”

    Freedom, adventure, discovery… nothing stirs the soul quite like a road trip. For future inspiration, Lexus UK has put together nine incredible road trips around England, Scotland and Wales to enjoy when lockdown is over Please note that these road trips should not be attempted until lockdown has ended and the UK Government has lifted all travel restrictions. Short but spectacular Kendal to Keswick Cumbria, England Encompassing the best of the Lake District in one 62km drive, this route on the A591 runs along the banks of Lake Windermere and Thirlmere, then the cloud-grazing Lakeland fells, slicing through countryside that has inspired artists and writers. Plan a pit stop at the village of Grasmere. William Wordsworth, who lived there for 14 years, called it “the loveliest spot that man hath ever found”. Cheddar Gorge Somerset, England The twists and turns of the B3135 would be fun even if the scenery were dull, but Cheddar’s soaring limestone cliffs make this 30km route irresistible. Craggy bluffs hug the roadside, making the drive from Bridgwater to Cheddar Gorge feel more like a caving expedition. Take the A372 east from Bridgwater, then the A361 north-east, before joining the B3131 and on to the B3135. Alas, it’s no hidden gem, but even the inevitable tourist traffic does little to dampen this route’s appeal. Ribblehead Viaduct Yorkshire, England From the village of Hornby to the Ribblehead Viaduct, along the A683, A687 and B6255 Yorkshire’s dashing Dales unfurl in every direction, replete with wild woodlands and pitted peaks that yield to lush, grassy valleys. This 25km trip ends beneath the famous 400-metre-high viaduct, whose soaring arches and honeyed stone have stood strong since the 1800s. Further on, the Buttertubs Pass (11km, between Thwaite and Hawes) features thrilling descents and hairpins aplenty. Mid-range and magnificent Snow Roads Scenic Route Cairngorms National Park, Scotland An exhilarating journey along Britain’s highest public road, this 144km route reveals some of the Highlands’ most beautiful scenery. From Blairgowrie, take the A93 and wend your way northwards, taking the A939 from Ballater – an effortless ride to traditional towns, crumbling castles and the Cairnwell chairlift (open all year, for skiers and hikers alike) – before toasting the end of your journey in charming Grantown-on-Spey. https://www.snowroads.com/ The Atlantic Highway Devon and Cornwall, England Nothing banishes the cobwebs quite like a coastal road trip and this is surely England’s best. Between Barnstaple (Devon) and Newquay (Cornwall) along the A39 and A3059 you’ll find 122km of glorious beaches, dramatic clifftops and incredible surf. From Newquay follow the easy curves of the A3075 and A30 for another 67km and you’ll reach Land’s End, the most westerly tip of mainland Britain. Big trips for adventurous souls The Coastal Way West Wales Stretching the entire length of Cardigan Bay, the Coastal Way is 290km long, but this journey isn’t measured in distances. Instead, it’s all about the deserted beaches you stumble upon, the traffic-free roads with edge-of-the-world views and the quaint B&Bs where you rest your head. While the driving is smooth and spectacular, the stop-offs make this route extra special: think dolphin safaris, forest foraging tours, and kayaking. The Cardigan Bay coast is dotted with towns and villages such as Cardigan, Aberaeron, Aberystwyth, Aberdovey, reached via the A487. North Coast 500 North Scotland This circular route starts in Inverness and driving clockwise you’ll soon give the city the slip, heading for northern Scotland’s untrammeled shore, through Muir of Ord, Applecross, Ullapool, John O’Groats, Wick, Dunrobin Castle and Dingwall, before returning to Inverness. The official route traverses 830km of winding back-roads, wind-whipped beaches, and remote rural communities, though we also recommend a detour to the Isle of Skye, to spy the otherworldly Storr rocks. https://www.northcoast500.com/ South West Coastal 300 Ayrshire and Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland Dumfries is the starting point for this 482km loop, beyond which lie breathtaking sea views, medieval castles and everything from angling to horse riding. The driving is spectacular as coastal curves give way to wide-angle stretches; ideal for lingering, but also perfect for putting your foot down. The route can be accessed from major routes including the M74 and M77 and takes in Mull of Galloway, the most southerly point in Scotland, as well as passing through Wanlockhead, in the Lowther Hills. Freedom never felt so good. https://openroadscotland.com/2019/great-scottish-routes-south-west-coastal-300/
