Lexus showcases besoke UX at Pebble Beach

Even though the UX wont officially arrive at dealers until December, that hasn't stopped Lexus from imaging more sporty looking variants. They debuted a custom UX 250h which features an Oracal wrap, an ABS lip kit, Vossen VFS-1 wheels, Apexi NI EXV damper suspension and a full cat back exhaust. What do we think?

Looks pretty good and hopefully this suggests that we'll see some decent aftermarket support at launch. Odd choice to throw an exhaust system on a hybrid, but I'm interested to hear how the setup sounds.

I can't wait for aftermarket to catch up because the UX has a lot of potential no matter which angle you look at it, from performance to aesthetics.
Overfenders from brands like Aimgain with the right offset, size and design of wheel will do it justice.

It wont be long until we start seeing more performance trims of hybrid and EV's. While these variants probably wont come with huge changes to the powertrain, they'll probably be more oriented around unique and aggressive styling kits.

If rumors of a new 4.0l turbo V8 are true then it could mean Lexus is planning to roll out high performing hybrids closer to the mid-2020's or a bit later.
very soon we'll be seeing a Lexus LC-F and some other F products. A new GS-F might not follow.

Aside from the LC 500, I really don't see the need for V8 engines. If they are able to get 300+ horsepower out of a V6, if they were to turbocharge it and pair it with a hybrid system it would be more than capable across their lineup.

Engine in the LC is the same engine used in the Lexus IS-F and the RC-F, it was yet again another example of Toyota being cheap but getting away with it.

Of all times to hold onto an engine, that's one of the few i can say is reasonable.
