Hypebeast has released a stunning photo gallery of the 2014 Lexus IS F SPORT:
(An excellent job by Photography by V — like photos from an official brochure.)
Travis Okulski of Jalopnik has reviewed the Lexus RC F, and it’s just full of that signature Jalopnik personality:
Is the RC F better than a BMW M3? I haven’t driven the M3 yet, but I find it hard to think that the RC F would be better. But is that the point? Everyone in this class needs their unique calling card. The Lexus is more blunt instrument than precision tool.
You can’t treat the RC F like it’s a serious track day weapon. With that big snout, carbon roof, and exaggerated design features, it obviously has a sense of humor, which is something Lexus has never really had. And if you can’t have fun in the RC F, then you really don’t know what humor is. That makes the RC F easily the best Lexus I’ve ever driven.
Lexus Europe have released their new NX commercial featuring Will.i.Am:
There’s also a behind-the-scenes look at how the commercial was created:
Overall, the concept is great — the commercial takes the sharpness of the NX and applies it to the rest of the world. Clever.
(Not crazy about the tie-in with Will.i.Am, as I’m not a fan of celebrity endorsements in general. Still, his presence in the ad is limited and the music is decent — no big complaints there.)
In the spirit of the F SPORT commercial released a couple months back, there’s a racy new Lexus IS commercial from the USA:
(I liked it — the “it’s not what it looks like” bit is an old cliché, sure, but it works.)
Photochopper X-Tomi has created a Lexus RC F convertible for anyone curious what the super-coupe would look like with the roof gone.
This X-Tomi’s second attempt, here’s the first from earlier this year:
(Unlikely that a RC F convertible will be released due to super-coupe’s focus on rigidity and performance, but the standard RC is well set up for the roofless option.)
