2010 Lexus 250C
Lexus unleashes its mischievous side with the debut of the all-new 2010 Lexus IS C retractable hardtop convertible, an entirely new dimension to the IS Line. To launch the highly anticipated convertible, Lexus is debuting an integrated marketing campaign designed to emphasize the vehicle's adventurous, playful personality and reach consumers looking for a thrill.

'The IS C gives Lexus the opportunity to reveal its more dynamic and playful side,' states Dave Nordstrom, vice president of marketing for Lexus. 'For the launch of the long-awaited IS C, we created a new advertising campaign that allows us to showcase the vehicle's unique personality and give consumers a glimpse of the adrenaline rush the IS C delivers.' 2010 Lexus 250C
The launch campaign features three IS C broadcast spots and one IS full-line spot, as well as print, interactive, out-of-home and support at key Lexus-sponsored events. The TV spots titled, 'Hop In', 'Running' and 'Look Out', feature the tag line, 'Live a little, a lot.' Each highlights the thrill of driving the IS C, as the car hugs every curve on the road and the drivers experience the thrill of driving top-down in a Lexus.
