Lexus Festival of F: August 13 & 14 at London’s Canary Wharf

Lexus Festival of F Canary Wharf

In recent years, Lexus has been focusing on making cars that are sportier to drive and to look at. Now, a special two-day festival – The Festival of F – will take place in London’s Canary Wharf on August 13 and 14, to display the range of ‘F Sport’ Lexus models that have been designed with keen drivers in mind.

The Festival of F is a new concept for 2014 and will see the Lexus IS 300h F Sport sports saloon, forthcoming NX 300h compact SUV, fire-breathing RC F, and the LFA supercar go on display outside Canary Wharf Tube station, allowing visitors to get up close and personal with the exciting models.

Boasting a rear-wheel drive layout, the IS 300h scores points for its driver-focused handling. Performance comes from a powerful petrol-electric full hybrid powertrain, which mates a 2.5-litre petrol engine to an electric motor to deliver 220bhp.

The Lexus NX 300h uses the same powertrain as the IS saloon and delivers up to 54.3mpg on the combined cycle. Deservedly touted as one of the most exciting new cars of the year, NX goes on sale in October, priced from £29,495.

The RC F will go on sale in the UK early next year and will be the second most powerful production Lexus of all time, behind the LFA. Its beating heart is a 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated 32-valve engine which is expected to deliver in the region of 470bhp, making it the most powerful V8 Lexus has engineered for a production car. Expect 520Nm of torque and a sub-5secs 0-60mph time.

Finally, the LFA needs no introduction, the 553bhp 4.8-litre V10-engined supercar fundamentally changed the way that people thought about Lexus at its launch in 2011, and its legacy is manifest in the sportiness of the cars that make up today’s Lexus range.

All of the aforementioned models can be seen from 7am tomorrow outside of Canary Wharf Tube Station. All four models will also be appearing at CarFest South from Friday August 22 to Sunday August 24.

  1. We spotted the cars arriving in Canary Wharf this morning – 1 x very excited husband!!!

    He is a huge Lexus fan – I’d love to arrange a a test drive for him in the LFA and or RCF. (He’s already told me his next car is going to be the RCF!)

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    1. Hello Janice
      Thanks for your post and great to hear that your husband is a Lexus fan.
      Well spotted on the cars arriving and hope you go along and have a look. As for test drives, we know that the RC F will not be a problem as the order books for this car open in a couple of weeks and demonstrators will be available from January next year. The LFA might be more of a problem as it was a limited run of 500 cars and all of these have been sold. However as you have spotted this morning we do own one of these and it is used for promotional purposes. Examples are Goodwood Festival of Speed and Carfest North and South, so it is still possible to go and see and hear it in action. For future events it may be worthwhile keeping an eye on our Blog or better still follow our Twitter handle @OfficialLexusUK or our Facebook page for the latest news about appearances by the LFA.
      Hope this helps for now and let us know if you have any further questions.
