PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT THE PETERSEN AUTOMOTIVE MUSEUM
2000 Lexus RX 300
Just as Lexus was celebrating its 10th anniversary in late 1999, the one-millionth Lexus destined for the United States was being built. As part of the company's celebration, the company donated this One-Millionth Lexus to the Petersen Automotive Museum. The money generated from the sale of this car will help support the museum in its efforts to preserve and promote the car culture embedded in Southern California.
The One-Millionth Lexus, a 2000 RX 30, features special wheels and tires, a sporty grille and special badging identifying this vehicle as the one-and-only millionth Lexus vehicle. A plaque also accompanies the car certifying that this is indeed Lexus' one-millionth vehicle built for the United States.
During its first decade, Lexus has established itself as a top contender in the competitive luxury market. With outstanding quality, excellent performance and unmatched customer satisfaction, Lexus continues its 'Relentless Pursuit of Perfection.'
