NYC Lexus CT 200h Event Update


The Lexus CT 200h World Tour has stopped in New York City, and here’s a little promo for the event:

Set up at High Line Park, today’s is the final day to test-drive the Lexus CT prototypes — here’s some initial impressions from a couple attendees:

I drove the road course yesterday and it’s just the right length to get a real sense of the car (more on that later) — I’ll also be there today, hope to see you there!

Update: Here’s the final video from the NYC event:

    The second video “here’s some initial impressions from a couple attendees” won’t play because “This is a private video. If you have been sent this video, please make sure you accept the sender’s friend request.”

    Why post a video no one can watch?

  • WorldofLuxury

    What? You were able to get a mini ride around NY in the CT?

  • Eljay

    I doubt they will,but I do wish Lexus would make a non-hybrid version with a manual gearbox for those of us who want more driver involvement.

    @seal: Whoa
    Well, the cloth isn’t terrible. It’s actually rather nice until it gets dirty. The cupholders are just nasty, though.

  • Eljay

    I really like the blue interior.I’ve often felt Lexus has been a bit to cautious and conservative regarding exterior and interior colours. This is brave,bold and I dig it! :-D

    I do love this car! But if it´s going to get great sales numbers in EU i think Lexus must put in a better engine. Why not the Is 2,5l v6 or make a new 2l turbo engine.
    And make a good looking 3d GTI challenger! :-P

  • Eljay

    Personally,I’d love to see it with a Yamaha-tuned ZR-engine with around 200hp and a six-speed manual gearbox.

    0 – 60 in 9.8 secs just puts me off. Used to be interested but not now! Not enough power for me, sorry Lexus.:-)

  • seal

    Price .. all i care for now.. they have to keep it as low as possible!
    Let’s wait 2 more weeks for the official announcement

    @Flemso:
