After first appearing at the Detroit Motor Show earlier this year, for this week’s Sydney Motor Show, Lexus has swapped the LF-LC’s burning red exterior for a lustrous Opal Blue finish, inspired by the natural base colour of the Australian gemstone.
After a successful premiere at the Detroit NAIAS Auto Show in January, Lexus’ hybrid 2+2 sport coupe makes its first European appearance at next week’s Geneva motor show.
If you’re in the market for a large sports saloon, then it might be worth giving the New Lexus GS F Sport a second look. Perhaps you remember the LF-Gh Concept, which looked like it could eat small animals whilst sitting stationary. The new GS F Sport manages to convey some of the concept’s intimidating presence, but with a distinctly more kid (and pet) friendly interior.
I am a big fan of vehicles which succeed in contradicting first impressions – Jaguar’s C-X75 which looks like it’s powered by a gas-guzzling 6-litre V12, but instead is propelled by a novel turbine-based hybrid powertrain, Volkswagen’s 172 bhp Transport Sportline which could give a sporty hatchback a run for its money and Porsche’s new 911 which offers 170 mph performance combined with near 40 mpg economy.
And now there’s the Lexus CT 200h F-Sport. Kind of.
