An announcement was made that there are 10 available colors. The actual colors have not been announced yet. However, here's what I've seen so far and my remaining guesses.

Seen:
1. Silver Lining Metallic
2. Atomic Silver
3. Sonic White (Ultra White)
4. Claret Mica
5. Starfire Pearl
6. Nebula Gray

Highly Likely:
7. Obsidian
8. Starlight Black

Guesses:
9. Deep Sea Blue Mica
10. Fire Agate Pearl

I was hoping for a bright red as I don't care for the Claret Mica.

^^^I could be wrong since again, it's just my observation, but typically Lexus has historically offered only one red for its models (Matador Red Mica, Claret Mica, and for the 2014 CT - Redline).

Personally, I like red as well (I had two MRM Lexus vehicles), and I was not initially fond of Claret Mica until I saw it in the right lighting! Forget the darker hues of this color, look at viperdoc's RX F-Sport and how great this color suits a sporty look. And the NX below looks great too even though the pic and lighting is bad

Found this photoshop of what almost looks similar to "Redline" red. Interesting vision by the artist.

Their official photoshoot of the NX F-Sport and unveiling at the NY autoshow has that exact model combination so I'd be VERY shocked if it's not available. I'm very confident it will be available.

USB was posted yesterday on Facebook by a Lexus Dealer in Europe. It looks amazing.

Yes, the colours have been reported on some Japanese sites such as this one.

http://matome.naver.jp/odai/2139526178834202001

This blog has been updated a few times and if you read the content, it even lists fuel consumption and packages available in Japan for NX as well as what kind of fuel is required (e.g., regular fuel for NX300h, premium fuel for 200t)


The colours for NX are:

ソニッククォーツ(新色) - Sonic Quartz (085) - New color introduced in NX. Some blog suggests it is the successor of Aurora White Pearl ( 078 )
プラチナムシルバーメタ - Platinum Silver Metallic / Silver Lining Metallic (1J4)
ソニックチタニウム - Sonic Titanium / Atomic Silver (1J7)
マーキュリーグレーマイカ - Mercury Grey Mica / Nebula Grey Pearl (1H9)
ブラック - Black (212)
スターライトブラックガラスフレーク - Starlight Black Glass Flake / Starlight Black Mica (217)
レッドマイカクリスタルシャイン - Red Mica Crystal Shine / Metador Red Mica (3R1)
ファイヤーゲートマイカメタ(Fは不可) - Fire Agate Mica Metallic / Fire Agate Pearl (4V3) - N/A for F Sport
エクシードブルーメタ - Exceed Blue Metallic / USB (8U1)
メテオブルーマイカメタ(Fは不可)- Meteor Blue Mica (8W3) - N/A for F Sport -- this is the colour available for current GS.

Thanks AndyL. Only one color is off IMO with what's shown in the video, and that's Claret Mica vs Matador Red Mica. From the video, it looks to me like it's the darker Claret Mica and not MRM At 1:57 and 2:09 (and the startup image of the video as well), but it could just be the lighting since the ES below shows how bright and dark MRM can be.
