2012 Lexus CT 200h F-Sport in Nebula Gray Pearl

When I spotted a 2012 Lexus CT 200h F-Sport during the Pebble Beach Concours a couple weeks back, it was notable for two reasons — not only was it my first look at the F-Sport option package, it was also showing off the new Nebula Gray Pearl exterior paint (click any image for a larger version):

Here’s a close-up of that grille:

Finally, some details shots:

Distracted as I was by the fourth-gen GS 350 only steps away, I didn’t get as many photos as I should have, and only took a cursory peek at the interior. Still, these quick-pics should tide us over until official photos are released.

    Like new camry engine with 200hp will be nice.

      The new Camry hybrid powertrain is a perfect fit for the CT 200h.

      I thought the CT was more of a luxurious Prius option.  Not an option to folks that want an IS but for some reason or another don’t have one?

    I would like to see that Five Axis supercharger installed as the F-Sport engine upgrade….300hp. Increased gas mileage by 2mpg…now that would be a good move by Lexus

    Nice ! Looks good…….now it needs a sister/brother engine to play with !   AKA: CT250,300,350 —-PLEASE !

    The CT design works beautifully! quite a looker. Sadly on the other hand, Lexus failed to deliver on the 2013 GS’s front end. Should have gave the GS headlights a more distinct design. :/

      100% agree with you. I think the same about Gs front.

      So, the different between this and regular model is only front grille and front-side F logo? No new front, rear and side bumpers, rims etc.

    bring back the smokey granite mica… FAIL on lexus part :(

    Love the color. It reminds me of when Audi had Dolphin Gray which was my favorite. But I don’t think Lexus should have gotten rid of Smokey Granite as it was about the classiest color they offered. Nebula is too light to replace Smokey.
