Lexus are exhibiting its RZ Sport Concept electric vehicle (EV), produced in conjunction with racing driver Masahiro Sasakiat, at Tokyo Auto Salon 2023 taking place 13-15 January, 2023. The RZ Sport Concept will be on display offering the unique driving experience of a battery electric vehicle (BEV) combined with the joy of customisation.

Based on the first dedicated Lexus battery electric RZ, this model is equipped with high-output 150kw motors in the front and rear to achieve even more powerful driving performance. The vehicle has been lowered by 35mm and features custom aero parts, larger diameter tires and full bucket seats in both the front and rear.

Under the supervision of racing driver Masahiro Sasaki, who was also involved in the development of the RZ, this model offers improved driving performance and the added joy of personal customisation. 

The exterior colour “Hakugin” is based on a pure clear white base that produces a delicate shining texture when illuminated by light. This is combined with a blue accent colour that Toyota says evokes the clean and dynamic performance of battery electric vehicles, accentuating the sporty image.

The RZ Sport Concept is a cool concept with its neat angles and low stance. We’re sure that not only Lexus and hot hatch fans will love the RZ Sport Concept but anyone who likes electric performance cars.
