JapanLexus RX Hybrid: First GenerationRacing

New Gazoo Racing Concept Powered by Lexus Hybrid Drive

Gazoo Racing's GRMN Sports Hybrid ConceptAlthough it’s not really a Lexus, this sports car concept by Toyota’s Gazoo Racing does share the same hybrid powertrain as the RX 450h.

Dubbed the GRMN Sports Hybrid Concept II, this MR2 inspired roadster gets its name from Toyota’s late test driver Hiromu Naruse (who was known as the Meister of the Nürburgring) and will be shown as this weekend’s Nürburgring 24h race.

Wow! I mention a need for a roadster a couple weeks ago and this pops up! Things are looking up at Toyota!

If Toyota ever puts it into production, they could as well also make a Lexus version to take on the SLK, Z4, TT, and Boxsters of the world. A sporty little roadster really would boost Lexus' brand image.

500 kg heavier than the MR2 it´s based on and a CVT gearbox? Forgive me if I´m not falling over with excitement.

It's maybe the Lexus SC hybrid test car !

    It would make a lot more sense with a hybrid drive line in an SC,as it´s not a sportscar,but rather a luxury car with a sporting flavour,but somehow I doubt the SC would be based on the discontinued MR2 Roadster/Spyder,but rather make use of a front-engined Lexus platform.
