Lexus at the US Open

While covering the US Open in Torrey Pines, golf blogger Geoff Shackelford spotted this Lexus LX 570 “Evacuation Vehicle”:

Pretty strange designation, I’m still trying to figure it out.

Lexus is also sponsoring an invitation-only event tonight on the roof of the Hard Rock Cafe in San Diego, where the US Open is taking place:

The event focal point is the pre-fabricated Lexus Hybrid Living home on the Hard Rock Hotel’s rooftop.  It incorporates Lexus’ Hybrid Living partners who define and inspire a new eco-luxury.

“The Lexus Style Villa Sports event will be the hot ticket during the U.S. Open tournament weekend,” states Dave Nordstrom, vice president of marketing for Lexus.

No images or real details, though the press release mentions the pre-fab home was designed by Marmol Radziner Prefab.
