Lexus CT 200h F Sport by Modellista

Article by Christian A., on January 25, 2011

Aftermarket developer Modellista has set its sights on the Lexus CT 200h. For the F Sport version of the premium compact, Modellista prepared a sporty body kit that can be bought right at the showroom. Exterior modifications include a front bumper add-on element, a set of side skirts, and a modified rear apron with a fresh exhaust layout.

It also received new details, such as LED fog lights and chromed elements. The vehicle now features a set of 18-inch rims.

The stock vehicle is already very impressive. Lexus describes the CT 200h to have presented for the first time the company's “unique synthesis of quality, sophistication and high technology” to the premium compact segment. Lexus also designed this model to reel in a younger group of customers.

The stock vehicle is also described to offer a “quiet revolution,” representing the synthesis of five key Lexus attributes: “Lexus Hybrid Drive and its tailored Energy Management System; a unique driving character; the dynamic yet elegant styling inherent in the latest realization of Lexus' L-finesse design philosophy; Lexus' unrivalled manufacturing quality and attention to detail; and the renowned customer service which lies at the heart of the Lexus ownership experience.”

The CT 200h hybrid premium compact features the Lexus Hybrid Drive and the Lexus MUSTs, which is a set of development standards. It also features dynamic yet elegant styling that stays true to Lexus' L-finesse design philosophy. Aside from experiencing Lexus' vaunted manufacturing quality and attention to detail, owners are also treated to the customer service that the brand has always been known.

At the heart of the new Lexus CT 200h is the Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain equipped with a distinct energy management system. Lexus engineers applied brand-specific engineering solutions and software tuning to improve both the driving performance and the environmental friendliness of the full hybrid series as well as its low NVH levels. The powertrain develops a total system output of 134 hp (100 kW), thereby enabling the CT 200h to accelerate from a standstill to 60 mph in 9.8 seconds.

On the other hand, the CT 200h is very fuel efficient, boasting of a combined EPA estimated fuel economy rating of 42 mpg. Likewise, the Lexus Hybrid Drive generates less NOx and zero particulate emissions when compared to similar diesel-powered vehicle. During EV mode, the hybrid drive chugs out zero NOx and particulate emissions, and allows the CT 200h to travel by up to one mile at 28 mph max.

To make the CT 200h more eco-friendly, Lexus installed a host of energy saving and environmentally conscientious features like LED lighting, an energy-efficient audio system amplifier, bamboo charcoal speakers, and the use of bio-sourced materials.
