SEMA: Day 1 Photos


Lexus RX 450h SEMA

Perhaps I should have expected it, but SEMA has turned out to be a whirlwind of activity, with little time to do much but take photos and move along to the next exhibit.

First off, the LFA was unveiled at the CEC booth yesterday with two different wheel styles:

Lexus LFA SEMA

Lexus LFA Driver Side Wheel

Lexus LFA Passenger-Side Wheel

The passenger-side ten-spoke alloys were a surprise, making for a much better fit than the driver-side five-spoke alloys are the ones we saw last week.

The Lexus tent was hopping with a custom t-shirt press, with one design featuring the hybrid model names as dots on dice:

The cars were clustered together, here’s some various shots:

Lexus GS 450h SEMA

Lexus LS 600hL SEMA Fox Marketing

Lexus CT 200h F-Sport Wheels

I’ll be walking the exhibits today on a Lexus-spotting mission — for more photos of the Lexus tent, be sure to check out the galleries over at Autoblog.

    OMG…. The more I looked at Paul Tolsen RX450h, the more that I think it is a WALD Black Bison Edition kit except that he molded all parts in. And funny thing is that the rear appron where those exhaust slots for Wald muffler kit were block off with what seems to me a Lexus logo… Should have ordered the Muffler for it instead

    Very nice! Thanks for sharing your pictures!

    Day 1? How about some pictures of the Toyota Swagger Wagon Supreme? :D

    Right side LFA wheels not bad.
    I still like the CT 200h (except for the tail light covers)!
    Nice job getting around to all the exhibits. You’ll surely need a good foot sooking when your done.

    No question about that. After a day in Las Vegas and two days at SEMA, I can barely stand. :`-(

    Definitely a Wald kit — there’s a Wald sticker on front window:

    the LFA looks gorgeous in that color. and in the 3rd photo, behind the man in jeans and a black shirt, what car IS THAT?

    @LFAaddict: Where have you been?!

    That’s the Fisker Karma that works like the Chevy Volt – even has a GM engine, I think.

    The RX450h is definitely the best of them all. Pure badass.

    The GS450h has to the worst though. It’s just hideous no matter from which angle you look at it.

    The cars are 100% awesome… I agree with Mister Two, the RX450h is by far the best of them all. Even so, my favorite is the one in the first picture. That car is to die for…

    @Mister Two: I think the GSh is very nice. Everything it has on there has a function because it’s designed to be an actual racecar.

    Hmm that’s true, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be more tastefully done, with every aero bit more coherently integrated. The GS450h race car that Lexus used to enter the 2006 Tokachi 24-hour Race was much better looking IMHO.
