NYIAS 2011: Fox Marketing Supercharges the Lexus CT 200h [Live Photos]
Speaking of styling cues, we have to tell you that the hatchback is now wearing a widebody kit that offers yet an aggressive appearance, but doesn’t take things too far. Yes, it does include a few bold elements, but these are mixed with clean lines to keep the car from being entered in the “trying too hard" category.
The tuned creation rides on Concave 20-inch rims that use a multi-spoke design and a black finish, which matches the dark tint of the windows.
Here’s what Brian Fox of Fox Marketing had to say about the project: “We will design, coordinate, build, and film our vision of how Lexus should have bought the CT to market. Performance is first on our minds, then a strong stance, look and feel.”
As you can see on our homepage, the CT 200h is the subject of our latest drive test. As the vehicle comes with truly engaging handling but has a powertrain that kills anything related to going fast, we’re hoping that Fox really means business with the “performance part”. The tuner hasn't released the specs, but the images tell us enough: there's a supercharger kit (not sure Atkinson though about this when he invented his cycle), a lowered suspension and beefier brakes. Since we’re here, we’ll also invite you to read our review of the CT 200h.
Our say: The CR-Z (along with a part of its tuned incarnations) is in big trouble.
