Lexus has rolled out a special Nurburgring-inspired version of the CT 200h hybrid for the Australian International Motor Show. But it will be gone in a couple of days.
Inspired by the 2.4L hybrid CT that competed in the Nurburgring 24-Hour endurance race, the show car features polished quad exhausts, extra body kit in the form of front lip spoilers and rear air diffuser, 18-in alloy wheels, and rides on a modified suspension that slings it 20mm lower than the standard car.
Lexus Australia chief executive Tony Cramb says the CT 200h Concept be a litmus test of public reaction. "The Australian International Motor Show gives us the perfect opportunity to engage with potential customers and assess their reaction," said Mr Cramb.
"There are elements of the CT 200h Concept that are currently under evaluation by Lexus for introduction into the local market."
