Lexus Discusses Upcoming New York International Auto Show Reveals
Shortly after Toyota started the Lexus brand in 1989, Mark Templin started his long career at Toyota. He’s now a managing officer of Toyota Motor Corporation and executive vice president of Lexus International, responsible for leading the luxury brand’s global operations. We got the chance to ask him a few questions at the preliminary press kickoff for the 2015 New York International Auto Show.
In one of the first big upsets of Nitto’s Battle of the Streets, the Lexus LFA completely dismantled the Mercedes AMG C63. In Stuttgart, they’re already calling it “The Tragedy of Los Angeles.”
Going to the dealer for service, such as an oil change, can be a real pain. You have to spend a good chunk of your day driving across town, filling out paperwork, and waiting. Imagine if you had to drive to another country, though. If you’re the owner of a Lexus LFA in Europe, that’s exactly what you have to do.
Lexus is taking a pair of cars to the 24 Hours of Nurburgring this year, and we just got some great footage of them in practice.
Just imagine, for a moment, what kind of car the Lexus GS F would be if they slapped a turbocharger onto the 5.0-liter V8. Dare to dream, because dreams can come true.
