New Cars for 2010
Lexus returns to the 2010 SEMA auto trade show in Las Vegas with a variety of models.
The new Lexus CT 200h, for example, is an F Sport Concept version of its soon-to-be-launched full hybrid luxury hatchback. It comes fitted with 18 x 8-inch alloys with Pirelli PZero Nero 225/40R/18 tyres, adjustable suspension and shocks and a Big Brake Kit, with 12.9 x 11-inch cross-drilled front discs.
0-60 Magazine has added performance and handling upgrades to the GS 450h sports saloon to increase the car’s fun factor on road and track.
The Custom Carbon five-piece body kit includes a rear wing, while the hot hybrid also gains a GReddy performance titanium racing exhaust, racing dampers and springs from TEIN USA, Brembo Gran Turismo brakes and forged racing wheels from Rays Engineering.
Fox Marketing’s Lexus LS 600h L is said to be SEMA’s “greenest” limousine by far, with its special Glacier Green and Satin Black paintwork.
The bold colour scheme is matched by a full Artisan Spirit body kit with skirts, smoked tail-lights, twin rear wings and a front light bar. The car rides on Rotiform concave 20-inch BLQ wheels with a “candy copper” finish and it hugs the ground due to an adjustable ride height system.
Modified Lexus/SSBC brakes are fitted – 14-inch front discs with four-piston callipers and 13.2-inch discs at the rear, and as a finishing touch, the Lexus emblems have a satin black finish.
The 2010 SEMA show is at the Las Vegas Convention Center until this Friday, 5 November.
