    To entertain children and adults during lockdown, the team at Lexus has created some colouring templates of the Lexus LC 500 sports coupe Finished designs can be shared with Lexus on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram by including the @LexusUK tag in your post. Lexus LC 500 Super GT You can create your dream racing car livery with the Lexus LC 500 Super GT car colouring template, but remember to stay within the (racing) lines. This illustration also includes racers from, BMW, Audi and Aston Martin because it commemorates the 2019 race when Super GT cars from Japan and cars from the German DTM series competed against each other for the first time. The first of these so-called ‘Dream Races’ was held at Fuji Speedway, with Nick Cassidy taking victory in the Lexus. Lexus LC Road Car If high-octane motorsport isn’t your thing, there’s a template that’s much more relaxing featuring a Lexus LC road car in two idyllic settings. The style of all these Lexus illustrations is inspired by Ukiyoe, which are traditional Japanese woodblock prints from the Edo period (1603 – 1868). About the Lexus LC 500 The Lexus LC 500 is Lexus’s flagship luxury coupe It was the first Lexus to be built on Lexus’s front engine/rear-wheel drive Global Architecture – Luxury (GA-L) platform It is the faithful evolution of the award-winning LF-LC concept car The LC 500 has a 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine and 10-speed direct shift automatic transmission. It delivers 457bhp and 530Nm of torque, enabling acceleration from 0 to 62mph in 4.7 seconds. LC 500h is a self-charging hybrid with naturally aspirated 3.5-litre V6 engine and first application of new Lexus Multi-Stage Hybrid System.

    Sometimes it only takes a small change to make a big difference. That’s how Lexus has succeeded in designing its first seven-seat version of the RX luxury SUV, the new Lexus RX L. Focusing on small but crucial details, Lexus has created an impressive new member of the RX family, adding more seats to the cabin yet maintaining all of the comfort, convenience and quality that are true to the brand’s omotenashi principles of hospitality. The new model is now available to order in the UK, with customer deliveries commencing mid-May. Inside the new RX L there are two extra seats, generous knee and headroom for everyone and plenty of space for luggage. But on the outside, the car is only 110mm longer than the five-seat model – barely the width of a man’s hand. In fact, it’s by adding those few extra millimetres that Lexus has gone further than most of its competitors, in effect creating a new body for the RX, rather than trying to squeeze more seats into its existing model. At first glance, there’s no mistaking that this is an RX, with all the intriguingly elegant and incisive styling that make it one of the best-looking models in its class. The designers were clear that the RX’s distinctive coupe-like profile had to be preserved. But look more closely and you will notice that not only is the RX L longer at the rear, the angle of its tailgate has been made slightly steeper. That fine adjustment is actually important in making sure there’s comfortable headroom for anyone sitting in the third row of seats. Even more valuable millimetres have been gained simply by moving the rear wiper mechanism from the top to the bottom of the window. Open the door and you will see just how smart a solution Lexus has come up with to provide a third row of seats and a layout that’s easy to adapt when you need more space for luggage. Raise the seats, or stow one or both of them flat: it just takes the press of a button. The seats are finished to the same high quality as the rest of the cabin and are comfortable for youngsters or adults for long journeys or shorter trips. The RX L means that when you want a night out with friends, for example, you need only take one car. The cabin is designed to be a social space, what Lexus designers call a “lounge” effect that’s open and light and where it’s easy for everyone to see what’s happening, share conversations and enjoy the in-car entertainment together on longer journeys.

    One year on from the launch of the Government’s Road to Zero transport strategy, Toyota and Lexus are helping power a transformation in cleaner mobility in the UK with record, accelerating growth in self-charging hybrid car sales Toyota (GB) PLC, the business representing both brands in the UK, is witnessing unprecedented demand from both private and business customers who are keen to embrace the real-world benefits of hybrid power. Sales volumes and growth during the first half of this year have continued to reach new heights. On the back of a 76 per cent increase in new hybrid vehicle sales during the past two years, Toyota figures are already up a further 10 per cent year-on-year so far in 2019. The order bank currently stands at around 23.000 vehicles – a level never witnessed before, with demand outpacing supply. The statistics are just as exceptional for Lexus, with more than 99 per cent of its new car sales being hybrids. This year the luxury brand is on course for record-breaking results, looking to a rise in its total volume of at least 22 per cent compared to 2018’s performance. Orders have soared to their highest level yet, with customer demand having exceeded supply for the past two years. Sales so far this year are up by 18.9 per cent on last year, with the order bank standing at 3,535 vehicles – a rise of 153 per cent. There are multiple reasons for this astonishing success. Toyota has more experience in self-charging hybrid technology than any other manufacturer and has made constant improvements since it debuted the concept more than 20 years ago with the introduction of the original Prius. The result has been ever more impressive gains in fuel economy and low emissions, at the same as air quality, pollution and sustainability have become critical concerns for society and the subject of increasingly stringent legislation. At the same time, Toyota has made the benefits of hybrid available to an increasingly wide market, adapting it for use in all kinds of vehicles, from the Yaris supermini to the RAV4 SUV. Equally, Lexus has proved the inherent quality and flexibility of the technology, applying it to models as diverse as the new UX compact SUV and flagship LC 500h coupe. This demonstrates how Toyota has engineered its hybrid models not just for environmental performance, but also for a more engaging driving experience. The technology has also proven its inherent strength and reliability, with millions of miles driven by Toyota and Lexus hybrids all around the world. Paul Van der Burgh, Toyota GB President and Managing Director, said: “The recent headlines about market setbacks for alternative fuel vehicles in the UK do not give the full picture. Toyota and Lexus hybrids are prospering as never before, as customers recognise and appreciate the authentic benefits they offer when it comes to fuel economy, low emissions and a powertrain choice that is eminently practical and requires no compromise in terms of everyday convenience, reliability and genuinely enjoyable driving quality. We have succeeded in making our hybrid technology a mainstream choice and its fast-rising popularity will make a significant contribution to achieving longer-term environmental targets.” Just as the UK Government has set out its roadmap for action in the Road to Zero, Toyota worldwide is making strong progress towards reaching the ambitious targets of its own Environmental Challenge 2050. This includes a plan to reduce CO2 emissions from its vehicles by 90 per cent by 2050, compared to 2010 levels – a challenge in which its hybrid technology strengths are an enabler for developing even cleaner and more efficient vehicle power systems.

    Refreshed Lexus RC F with improved performance and updated design New RC F Track Edition with exclusive upgrades for hard-core enthusiasts High-resolution images for the new RC F Track Edition can be downloaded from here, and additional images of the refreshed RC F can be accessed here The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit marks the first appearance of the new Lexus RC F coupe with improved performance and revised styling. Also making its debut is the new, limited-production RC F Track Edition, a model that fulfils the dual roles of a luxury car for the road and a serious machine for the track. The RC F Track Edition blends Lexus luxury and craftsmanship with the kind of performance upgrades typically reserved for exotic sportscars. Its introduction is part of the evolution of the ‘F’ performance model range as a pillar of Lexus’s overall brand strategy. The RC F itself has been extensively updated, with improved aerodynamics, reduced weight, retuned suspension and styling changes, taking the coupe to a new level of performance and refinement. “The new RC F benefits from the constant development that has taken place since the coupe’s original launch. With the latest improvements, it helps further distinguish the F brand by offering fast, durable, highly capable performance cars that feature a range of technologies to help make their performance accessible to drivers of all skill levels,” said Koji Sato, Executive Vice President, Lexus International. The RC F redefined The new Lexus RC F coupe has undergone a wide range of changes to boost its performance and freshen its appearance. One of the engineers’ first targets was to reduce weight without compromising the car’s sense of refinement and solidity. At the rear, hollow half-shafts replace the previous solid components, while a pared-down intake manifold and a smaller air conditioning compressor remove weight from the front of the car. Using aluminium for the toe control brackets and the upper suspension support brackets also reduces weight while maintaining stiffness. To further refine the feel of the RC F, stiffer bushings have been introduced for the rear suspension arms and steering rack mounts. More rigid engine mounts are used to better harness the power of the RC F’s normally aspirated 5.0-litre V8, one of the last power units of its kind available in a luxury coupe. The engine now has a maximum power output of 451bhp/336kW and maximum torque of 520Nm at 4,800rpm, thanks to a revised intake routing and lower rpm trigger point for the second intake opening (2,800rpm vs 3,600rpm). The established eight-speed automatic transmission is retained, but with a higher final drive ratio (3.13 vs 2.93) for improved off-the-line response. For the sharpest standing start acceleration, the RC F is equipped with electronic launch control as standard, a system which automatically adjusts the traction and throttle control for maximum take-off from standstill. All the driver has to do is press and hold the brake pedal, engage the system by pressing a button on the console, floor the accelerator to bring the engine up to speed and then release the brake. Using the system results in a nought to 62mph time of just 4.5 seconds. Additional performance gains are delivered by new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres designed specifically for the RC F. Compared to the standard Michelin specifications, the RC F’s tyres have a unique profile, tread pattern and rubber compound. The changes are designed to reduce understeer, improve overall lateral grip and increase durability under extreme conditions. There are subtle but substantive changes to the RC F’s styling that add familial traits and further refine its powerful overall shape. The headlights have been updated to a design featuring stacked LEDs and integrated daytime running lights. The shape of the signature spindle grille has been altered by adding a lower lip opening that stretches across the bottom to create a visually shorter front facia. At the rear, new tail lights are neatly integrated into a reshaped bumper, giving a cleaner, more chiselled appearance. RC F Track Edition: A higher degree of F The RC F Track Edition is not simply an accessories package, it features a precisely engineered set of upgrades that work together seamlessly to take performance to a new level. Developed with input from Lexus race teams competing in the Super GT and IMSA series, the Track Edition is designed to deliver exceptional performance that enthusiasts can easily exploit in a wide variety of conditions. Achieving the desired level of predictable performance was made possible by rigorous engineering and the assembly precision skills of the Lexus Takumi craftsmen who oversee production of every RC F. All aspects of the car were scrutinised for improvement, but refinement was not sacrificed for all-out speed; the Track Edition is an uncompromised luxury performance coupe with the ability to impress on the track and off. A smoother shape and a precise diet The RC F Track Edition’s aerodynamic signature is a key area of improvement. The front air dam is not only made from carbon fibre to reduce weight, it is also designed to increase front-end downforce for better grip and more precise steering. At the rear, a fixed carbon fibre wing replaces the active spoiler offered on the standard RC F. This wing is not only lighter, it has a dual purpose, simultaneously reducing drag and adding downforce. To accomplish that seemingly paradoxical feat, the engineers began by shaping the wing in a way that smooths the airflow over the rear of the car, to reduce drag-inducing turbulence. They then added a very slight angle of attack to produce downforce without compromising the overall airflow. The result is up to 26kg of additional downforce, compared to the active rear spoiler. As with the standard model, weight reduction was key. Preliminary estimates put the total saving at between 70 and 80kg compared to the previous RC F, but more importantly, the engineers focused on cutting weight in ways that could yield the most significant dynamic improvements. This led to a focus on unsprung weight, since removing any weight from the mass not supported by the suspension pays huge dividends in handling and steering feel. With that goal in mind, every Track Edition model has Brembo carbon ceramic brake discs. These are not only significantly lighter than their steel counterparts, they are also better able to withstand the extreme heat cycling associated with performance driving. They are surrounded by a set of lightweight 19-inch BBS forged alloy wheels with a design derived from the RC F GT3 race car. Between the wheels, brake discs and callipers, the Track Edition posts a 25kg unsprung weight reduction on the front of the car alone. Additional weight was removed by specifying carbon fibre (CFRP) for the roof and bonnet and a change to a carbon fibre for the partition behind the rear seats and bumper reinforcement. Many of these carbon fibre elements are made on the same production line that supplied the Lexus LFA during its two-year production run. Further weight is saved through using a titanium exhaust silencer and tailpipes. Using titanium – rarely seen on production cars – not only reduces weight, it also gives the Track Edition a polished look and a unique sound. That sound is worth broadcasting, too, as the Track edition is powered by the same normally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 engine found in every other RC F. To create a more exclusive look in the cabin, the Track Edition is fitted as standard with a red leather interior, with Alcantara seat upholstery accents and red carbon trim on the doors and dashboard. The new model will be available in a choice of two exterior colours: Ultra White and Nebula Matt Grey, the latter exclusive to the Track Edition. Production of the new RC F and RC F Track Edition will begin in March this year. Pricing and further details will be announced closer to their on-sale dates.

    Lexus will mark the 10th anniversary of its mighty ‘F’ performance brand in style this summer, giving fans the chance to experience the speed and incredible sound of some of Lexus’s famous performance cars. Starting with the 417bhp, V8-powered, IS F, and taking in the legendary LFA supercar, the 470bhp RC F coupe and the GS F saloon, Lexus F cars have always been at the heart of the performance and excitement of the Lexus brand. The festivities will begin at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where five-time Daytona winner and former Lexus LFA development driver Scott Pruett will be taking to the hill in the Lexus RC F GT3 racing car – recently a winner in both the American IMSA Weathertech SportsCar Championship and the Blancpain GT Series in Europe. Scott will be at the wheel of the American 3GT Racing car, which sports a distinctive blue chrome livery. The American racing legend will be joined by Briton Jack Hawksworth, who currently races the 3GT Racing RC F GT3 in IMSA. Jack will be driving a race-prepared RC F Cup sporting a one-off Lexus ‘F’ livery. Abbie Eaton, test driver on television’s The Grand Tour, will also be driving up the hill at the wheel of the iconic Lexus LFA. The new RC F 10th Anniversary, which features an exclusive Mercury Grey matt paint finish last used on the LFA and striking Blue Carbon interior upholstery, will make its dynamic debut in the First Glance paddock. Later in the month, that special edition RC F coupe will also be on static display at the Silverstone Classic, and both CarFest North and CarFest South. It will be joined at the former by the RC F GT3 and the race-prepared RC F Cup cars. Additionally, there will be a campaign across Lexus UK’s social media channels, charting the story of ‘F’ from the 2008 IS F right through to the latest RC F 10th Anniversary Edition.

    Lexus established the luxury crossover segment two decades ago with the global debut of the RX 300 at Detroit. It remains the top-selling luxury crossover despite nearly 50 competitors that have since entered the segment The Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept introduces a new genre of luxury vehicle: the flagship crossover. Combining high performance with unrestrained luxury, the Lexus LF-1 Limitless is a showcase of technology, innovation and the latest evolution of design at Lexus. The innovative spirit of the Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept was created at CALTY Design Research in California. The design language is rooted in the simple yet elegant design concept dubbed “molten katana”. This design visualization fuses the organic shapes of liquid metal with the sharp edges of a traditional Japanese sword. Imagining that shift from a smooth, flowing mass into a solid, chiselled shape formed the basis for the fluid, yet aggressive design of the LF-1 Limitless concept. BRAVE DESIGN FACT #1 CABIN DESIGN: COMFORT IS KING “This is our vision for a new kind of flagship vehicle that embraces crossover capability without giving up the performance and luxury delivered by today’s top sedans,” said Kevin Hunter, President, CALTY Design Research Inc. “The LF-1 Limitless concept incorporates imaginative technology while creating a strong emotional connection by improving the human experience for the driver and passengers.” Maximum comfort for every passenger was CALTY’s goal for the cabin. The Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept adheres to the Japanese tradition of Omotenashi, or hospitality, welcoming all who enter with equal enthusiasm. The front passenger space is far more open, with even fewer controls and a wide unobstructed dashboard. Those in the back get the same seats as those in front with expansive legroom and individual display screens for adjusting the climate control or entertainment options. BRAVE DESIGN FACT #2 INTERIOR LIGHT: TWINKLE, TWINKLE, IT'S A STAR! Lighting plays a key role in the look and feel of the interior of the Lexus LF-1 Limitless Concept. Engaging the START button initiates a dramatic lighting sequence of ambient light based on which of the several available driving modes is engaged. For a more subtle effect, the wooden door trim has tiny perforations that allow indirect light from miniature LEDs to shine and twinkle in a variety of colours. This lighting creates beautiful movement in the interior that complement the more direct overhead lights. BRAVE DESIGN FACT #3 SPINDLE GRILLE: LET ME SEE YOUR GRILLE! Like all current Lexus models, the spindle grille on the LF-1 Limitless concept is a core element to the overall design. On the LF-1 Limitless concept, it’s been taken even further, with details that suggest the start of the spindle form at the rear of the vehicle that then continues forward toward the nose. The grille itself features a three-dimensional design with colours developed in-house by CALTY. Ridges radiating away from the central emblem suggest magnetism guiding metal filings into shape. There is no chrome, as the LF-1 Limitless concept instead uses LED lighting around the grille that greets you on arrival. BRAVE DESIGN FACT #4 GLASS SURFACE DESIGN: THE ROOF TO INSPIRE The Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept takes the popular crossover genre and heightened sense of performance while challenging traditional crossover SUV proportions and styling. The concept’s long hood and powerful stance give it the look of a performance sedan while maintaining the higher ride height and versatile functionality that have made crossovers the preferred choice for so many of today’s customers. Using a large glass surface as the roof helps enhance the appeal of this concept and draws attention to the interior design. The interior involves bright, modern metallic finishes and LED lighting treatments to create an enticing cabin. Gazing through the large glass roof reveals a realm of imagination and inspiration that is driving the future of the luxury crossover category. As the Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept has not been confirmed for future production development, the use of glass on this model is entirely exploratory. LF-1 SPECIFICATIONS LENGTH 197.4 inches - 5014 mm WIDTH 78.2 inches - 1986 mm HEIGHT 63.2 inches - 1605 mm WHEELBASE 117.1 inches - 2974 mm
