We may have seen the Lexus CT 200h F-Sport make its global debut at the 2010 Australian International Motor Show a couple of weeks ago, but the U.S. will only be seeing the concept version of the electric hatchback when the SEMA show opens its doors this week. In a crowd of five customized hybrid models, each an attempt by Lexus to prove that hybrids can also be fun to drive, the CT 200h F-Sport is the best example of this mission. Ironically, the best example of this idea is also only going to be a concept, according to Lexus, as they say they have no plans on producing the F-Sport. Something tells us they’re fibbing and we are actually seeing the preview version of the future F-Sport version of the CT200h model.
The customization program for this F-Sport Concept includes an F Sport performance adjustable suspension, adjustable dampening shocks, and an F Sport high performance Big Brake Kit – Front with 12.9 x 1.1-inch cross-drilled rotor. The whole package is finished by F Sport 18x8.0-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli PZero Nero 225/40R/18 front and rear. Add to that the cool white exterior paint and the fact that it can get 42mpg, and you’re looking at something that would definitely be fun to drive.
