Lexus celebrates performance in January

LFA 01

We’re under starter’s orders for a month-long celebration of Lexus performance!

And where better to kick-start this celebration than with an in-depth look at the most powerful and performance-oriented engine Lexus has ever produced? You can read more about the phenomenal V10 from the Lexus LFA supercar, here.

And that’s not all. Over the coming weeks, we will also be exploring the rest of the Lexus range, and introducing you to some important new arrivals!

In the past, the subject of performance focused on outright speed and acceleration. While that original definition remains, in more recent decades the term ‘performance’ has expanded to include vital qualities such as economy, ecology and aerodynamics.

Performance nowadays is also about how many miles you can eek out of a tank full of fuel, how cleanly a car can slice through the air, and how efficiently parts can be recycled when they reach the end of their usable life. There’s certainly no shortage of things to talk about.

So we shall be exploring this multi-faceted subject during the month, and hope to explain just how important the performance of its vehicles is to Lexus, in every sense of the word.

And don’t forget, you can join in with our celebrations across all our social space. We will also be publishing content across our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and YouTube channels. Search for this hash tag – #LexusPerformance – you’ll never be far from exciting content.

  1. I’m into my second LEXUS Saloon Car in 2013, having moved from an IS250 to the all new IS300h. I was most happy with the IS250 which was only 12 months old, when I changed. The principally reasons for the change were 1) No Road Tax and 2) more mpg both of which will save me money in the long term. The IS300h takes some getting use to with the “electric motor” plus 2.5 litre petrol engine, that said, its smooth in its transfer both up and down through its gear system. I particularly like the “Sports Mode” which really pep things up !!!
    I also like the 60/40 split in the rear seats which were not on the IS250.

    1. Hi Peter
      Thanks for your post and great to hear your feedback about changing from the IS 250 to the IS 3000h. Owners choose hybrid for different reasons and it does prove valuable to know why owners took the decision to switch. The vehicle dynamics were improved in the new IS range and we hope you will notice this as well. We also receive a lot of feedback about how quiet and serene the car is to drive particularly when stuck in traffic.
      Thanks again for your post and let us know how you get on.
