    I like the many L-insignias in the RXh, but some of them just look very unprofessional, and it looks like they painted over the Power-Vol and Tune-File words – obviously don’t light up anymore. Still, the RXh has what I’ve always wanted in a Lexus.

    And deep-dish wheels are turnoffs for me.

    Wow for the CT200h because that 18″ wheel looks really great !
    Wow for the GS450h because there’s finally someone tuned Hybrid sedan into race car !
    Wow for the RX450h because it’s … weird !

    I’ve just realize this year’s Lexus only show off Hybrid on Sema !

    It’s a loud one too, and they once had a Facebook page… but they don’t exist anymore.

  • Joshd

    @WorldofLuxury :

  • Travis

    That RX is BADASS.. That front bumper is sick…

    Lexus LS looking ill as always…

    The GS is niceeee.. I wanna see it tracked !

    @RDS: Trivia: that’s the one that needed dry ice in the middle of a race to keep its batteries from burning up.

  • Stan

    Hmm, its a <2007 GS450h. Pre-facelift.. :O

  • JVX

    I like the exterior look of the RX450. It has a strong and beefy look. Only turn-off is that pretzel-like knot hanging in the rear-view mirror.

    Fox Marketing did a great job on that LS600hl. The triple-LED projectors look great, and I love those dual foglights with chrome bezels, like found on MB.

    I wonder if that’s the same HS250 I saw at Pursuit 2 event in Irwindale. It looks awesome in person.

    Besides the performance brakes and bigger wheels on the CT200h, it looks the same as the regular CT. I think the Australian has the better F-sport CT200 package:

    The GS450h looks like it can do a lot of damage on the race track. I personally like the Volk racing wheels the best in the bunch.

    @JVX: The 3 LED projectors look best in the LSh and the LF-Xh Concept. On the other vehicles, it’s so-so.

    @WorldofLuxury :

    I’d trust on that because Ni battery is kind of battery that I hate the most ,
    I hope Toyota & Lexus use Li-Ion !
