LEXUS MAKES OFFICIAL GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED DEBUT
(Update 30th May 2013)
- Lexus announces first official appearance at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed
- Public showcase for the all-new IS sports saloon
- New IS driving opportunities available at the festival’s Moving Motor Show
Lexus will be adding to the spectacle of the Goodwood Festival of Speed for the first time as a contributing manufacturer this year, taking the opportunity to celebrate the introduction of its all-new IS sports saloon in the UK.
The striking new IS range – which includes the first full hybrid IS model – will be one of the main attractions in Goodwood’s Moving Motor Show on the eve of the festival, 11 July. Visitors will be able to organise short test drives on the day, to be among the first in the country to take the wheel of the new Lexus, and to register interest with their local Lexus Centre.
Lexus will also be showing its new GS executive saloon and its LFA supercar, recently praised by Jeremy Clarkson as “the best car I’ve ever driven”.
The LFA has been a regular festival crowd pleaser in recent years, thanks to Gazoo Racing putting its Nürburgring 24 Hours race car through its paces up Goodwood’s hill course. This year the new IS 300h will be taking to the hill, in F Sport trim, demonstrating how Lexus has injected sporting appeal across its complete model range.
