With that light bar going all across the rear that's got to be some sort of Lexus race car teaser. It would match the current trend corporate is going with the new NX. Again pure speculation on my part.
@CRSKTN well remembered!
I can see the resemblance between this new GR GT3, the back end from the LFA and the front end from the new Lexus coupe.
But wasn't that an EV concept?
I'm finding this concept really intriguing!
I feel like this might've been exactly what that Racer article all those months ago was teasing. Ground up design built around GT3, looks awesome! I can see the parallels people are drawing with the rear and the LFA + new design language all around. Can't wait to see the production version of this reach the racetrack!
The fast low pressure air flowing over the roof mix with the stagnant high pressure air behind the car, creating a zone of turbulence. This increases drag. Those aerodynamic pieces divert air upwards to reduce this turbulence hence reducing drag.
Another way of doing this is to make the tail very long and sloped (like MB EQXX) so the low pressure air stream hits the ground generating a 'wall' that prevents turbulence from forming.
A lot of energy for Rolex tho it’s gonna be cold!!! Townsend Bell has joined us for the 24 hours. We will have the first ever Lexus Parade Laps for VIP Owners and Enthusiasts. A ton of executives and dealers will be here as well. I have my hands in a few things including putting together quickly two IS 500s for Lexus Racing.
