Lexus CT 200h in Daybreak Yellow

Of all the Lexus CT 200h exterior color options, Daybreak Yellow was the last color I expected to like, but seeing it in person changed my mind, at least to a degree — depending on the sun or shade, it could shift from gold to garish in the blink of an eye, and it was that drastic range in tone that really warmed me up.

Mind you, it’s not a color I would pick myself, but it’s certainly a standout choice in the palette — here are some photos I took of the sunshine CT while cruising the overcast French countryside:
