The most exclusive Lexus yet built, the Lexus LFA supercar gains an even more track-focused profile with the addition of the bespoke Nurburgring Package, to be shown in public for the first time at the Geneva motor show in March 2011.
Aimed at customers looking for even greater levels of performance from the V10 supercar, the Nurburgring Package is available on a maximum of 50 of the 500 cars that are being built. It provides additional aerodynamic features and technical revisions to improve handling and downforce, increases engine output by 10bhp to 562bhp and speeds up gear shifts in the six-speed sequential transmission.
Lexus will also be presenting the new Lexus CT 200h, the first and only full hybrid model in the luxury hatchback segment, just ahead of its market launch. Europe-wide enquiries about the new car are 40 per cent higher than expected and customer orders are 50 per cent above Lexus's plan. Appearing alongside the Lexus GS 450h executive sports saloon, Lexus RX 450h luxury SUV and Lexus LS 600h limousine, Lexus CT 200h provides Lexus with the only comprehensive range of full hybrid models in Europe.
Lexus CT 200h is expected to drive Lexus's European sales higher, with an anticipated increase of more than 60 per cent in a premium market that is predicted to remain flat overall.Published 10 February 2011
