I just found this photo of the interior with Black Nuluxe. I have to say it looks a bit disappointing. Any other photo I saw the black nuluxe looked a similar color to the black interior colors. In this photo the nuluxe definitely looks to be a contrasting shade of black, something I was not expecting. :(

To me it does not look so good. I'm hoping that either this was a pre-production photo and or this photo is not how it actually looks.

Makes me wish even more for gray leather..

Please let me know your feelings.. I'm kind of anal about the way things look to my eye. My eye is maybe not like everyone else's... Comment please...

Small photo from Lexus Build it now.


Large photo from Colorado Dealer Blog


Interior 360. Doesn't look the same as large photo above.. arghhhh..

I think the second picture is a bit extreme. The Black Nuluxe in my car is definitely not as dark as true black leather and does have that kind of brownish tone to it under certain lighting conditions, but it definitely does not seem as much of a contrast as shown in that official Lexus picture....

Thanks for that info Jimbo..

I assume tht large photo is not an official Lexus photo.. seems to have been released at a Colorado dealer.. I'm assuming it was one of their first cars and they did a press event or blog here:

The 2011 Lexus CT 200h Interior from Kuni Lexus of Littleton in Colorado | Kuni Lexus of Littleton 2011 CT 200h

So I'm not sure about this CT whether it was a CT for sale or one just making the rounds for press events...

I just noticed on that page though that there is a European style license plate on that car.. yikes.. that with the Castle looking building might mean that it isn't even a US CT.. hmmm

I just went into the Garage and looked inside the car... It's raining and thundering here so I'm not putting my baby outside right now....

Just opening the door and looking in, It looks black under normal lighting (garage lights). I took my iPhone out and tried to snap a picture and the flash made it look that browner/bronze color like in the picture... I think it reflects the flash well, hence it does look lighter under different lighting conditions.

As the ultimate test, I even just asked the wife what she thought the color was and she said "it's black"... She's much more picky than me (trust me on that!) so what she says, goes....

Haha.. great.. I was thinking about a flash causing the different look too.. so that might be what happened.. I will see it for myself soon enough.. Thanks again.. R
