Rounding off the display will be the LFA supercar in both its standard form and its track-focused Nürburgring Edition form.
LS 460 F Sport by Five Axis
Concept design studio Five Axis has taken the new LS 460 F Sport (due in the UK at the end of the year) and added even more visual muscle and styling impact, with a full aero body kit, 22-inch custom wheels with Yokohama Advan Sport tyres, Air Runner TC-5 air suspension a dedicated matt silver paint finish and grey accents.
Supercharged GS 350 F Sport by VIP Auto Salon
The Lexus GS F Sport made its SEMA debut last year and returns in a hot new interpretation by VIP Auto Salon that raises performance with an Apexi CG SPL custom supercharger kit, high-performance Brembo brakes and Vossen CV7 20-inch wheels. The car’s extra potential is broadcast in a WALD International Aero styling package.
Lexus IS F CCS-R
The IS FCCS-R appears at SEMA fresh from its debut at the Peaks Pike International Hill Climb in Colorado, where it secured a second-in-class result on its debut. Powered by a standard 416bhp 5.0-litre V8 engine, this competition special saloon features carbon fibre bodywork elements, 18-inch SSR wheels and racing brakes and exhaust system.
Lexus LF-CC Concept and LFA
The Lexus LF-CC Concept makes its USA debut at SEMA, having being unveiled at the Paris motor show in September. It represents both styling and hybrid powertrain technology that Lexus will be applying to new showroom models in the near future. Also on show in Las Vegas is the Lexus LFA supercar, presented in both its standard form, and with the Nürburgring Package which can be specified to tailor handling for track performance.
The 2012 SEMA Show takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center from 30 October to 2 November.
