EVO Magazine has brought together Lexus UK’s Pearl Blue LFA and a Ferrari 599 GTO for a matchup in their latest issue — and while it may not hit newstands until next Wednesday, here’s a fun little video showing the two cars battling for top speed bragging rights.
The actual Auto Express preview of the 2013 Lexus GS prototypes may be short on details, but their accompanying photo gallery provides plenty of insight into the next-generation GS, including our first look at the hybrid LED headlights.
While the North America edition of the next-generation Lexus GS appears to be carrying over the 3.5L V6 from the current generation (in both hybrid & non-hybrid formats), the fourth generation sports sedan will be getting a new engine for European (and likely Japanese) markets: the GS 250.
It was a busy weekend for Lexus in Europe -- not only did a LS Hybrid serve as the official wedding car of the Royal Monaco wedding, but the UK's Goodwood Festival of Speed included two LFAs: the #88 Gazoo Racing LFA from last month's Nürburgring 24h race and an example of the super-limited Nürburgring Edition LFA.
This Auto Express video showdown between the Lexus CT 200h, Nissan Leaf & VW Golf GTD had all the potential for a very interesting comparison, but ultimately fizzles with its focus on superficial testing criteria rather than examining the differences between the three models.
It was quite an eventful weekend for racing -- not only did both the Le Mans 24h Race and the Canadian Grand Prix turn in spectacular results, but the #111 Lexus LFA (and drivers Iida Akira, Oshima Kazuya & Ishiura Hiroaki) won the SP8 class on their way to placing 5th overall in the latest edition of the VLN Nürburgring series. This is the best overall result for the Gazoo team since they started racing LFAs in 2008.
