It is no less than 20,000 square foot of space that Lexus have booked for themselves at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show. It definitely indicates the plethora of exciting things that Lexus is planning to put up on display at the show. One would sure get to see the sporty ones as well as the high horsepower ones from Lexus at the event. That the company is not restricted only to luxury brand which it has already etched a name for itself through its refined sedans and SUV models, but can also produce some other talents also, is what they wish to show at the event, as Paul Rohovsky, the National Manager of Events and Promotions at Lexus reveals. The LFA supercar and CT 200h luxury hybrid entry in the event, as per Paul, are examples of the diversity that Lexus is capable of giving the auto world. There are also the performance boosters that the company can offer which would help boost performance on many of the cars. The main item that would draw attention of the visitors at the event would be the 552 horsepower V10 LFA supercar.
US customers have been getting the Lexus 2012 LFA since last month. Enclosed in a “Darker Side of Green” interactive studio one would get to view the new CT 200h at the event. This hybrid car has a fuel economy of 42 mpg as per EPA estimates which is considered to be the best in the luxury car genre. There would also be the debut of the Five Axis Project CT which could be a highly modified form. That hybrid can be aggressive in looks and feel is what this car would prove to the people at large.
The CTR200h has a Five Axis custom widebody conversion, JDSU “Dark Passage” paint, with black accent for the paint job. It also has TEIN Flex coilover suspension system and custom 19 inch FIVE:AD forged wheels. The other features of the car are the custom Ultrasuede® EcoDesign™ interior, custom touch screen interface center console and a Stoptech High Performance Big Brake Kit on the front. There would also be a display of those cars which were prominent in last year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. This would also include a customized LS600h L by VIP Auto Salon and a revamped RX 450h courtesy of tuner Paul Tolson, EST Styling. Sale of the CT 200h starts in March.
