    Are we likely to see a new (facelifted) version of the RC F soon? This special edition comes with a 10.3 inch screen - hint much?

    I was expecting a Supra from Toyota a GS concept from Lexus even a facelift GX to match the recently facelifted Prado or maybe RX-L or even the next generation ES but nothing except pure concepts

    GX is not sold in Japan at all and I doubt RX-L would be interesting there either.

    Toyota showed new Crown, looks great... I guess Supra will be shown at some US show? Thats interesting.

    Not so sure about the blue interiors, but I love everything else about these two special editions!

    I wonder if matte paint is difficult to keep clean?

    @spwolf

    All what I mean is that there are a lot of production models waiting to be appeared in both Toyota and Lexus lineups
    And most of what Toyota and Lexus concepts in this TMS are pure concepts
    Only Crown and Century, I love both maybe even more than Lexus but neither will be sold out of the rising sun market

    Lexus did have better SEs in past than this. This GS SE still can't touch Lexus GS Passionate Black.

    Well Tokyo is generally all about concepts really... Toyota has so many cars in Japan, they just release them before they go on sale, it is very rare that they are presented at Tokyo show.

    GS Passionate Black was my jam. They sold 5 in Canada, and I actually spotted one in a driveway. Pulled right in and knocked on the door, owner let me look inside.

    I missed GS Passionate Black back when it happened (I hadn't yet found LE and "that other place" wasn't my style) but I just looked it up and now I totally endorse knocking on random peoples' doors to see it. If you could get that in an LS I would never sell the car.

    Normally, it's trickier and more delicate than regular gloss paint (if I remember correctly, folks opting for the Hyundai Veloster's factory matte paint option were admonished not to run it through an automated car wash). Lexus, however, notes in its official 10th Anniversary RC F / GS F U.S. news release that:

    With BMW/Mercedes you are advised not to use a car wash, hand wash only and lightly. Also if the car is in an accident its a PITA to color match.

    But there is nothing like a beautiful matte OEM job.

    I'm not sure why they decided to go with the PS2 rather than a Cup 2 tire.

    Very cool but realistically how many are they going to sell?


    I really like this new blue color scheme but it really needs to be an optional feature because Lexus always have limited interior options.
