Lexus speeds up to Goodwood

The  Goodwood Festival of Speed is the largest motoring garden event in the world – a unique summer weekend that gathers an amazing mix of cars, stars and motor sport ‘cavalry’ to create the most important car culture event in the world.

The festival, taking place between 12- 14 July this year, will be the scene where many brands will show of with their cars. As a premiere for the event, Lexus will also be part of it. So the first time has to be something great. That is why the 2014 IS lineup will be available for testing by the guests. The fleet includes the IS 250 and the IS 350, the first one powered by a 2.5-liter V6 engine and the latter by a 3.5-liter V6.

The company will also be presenting its new GS executive saloon and its LFA supercar. The first full hybrid Lexus IS model will certainly be one of the main attractions in Goodwood Moving Motor Show scheduled a day before the show officially begins. The visitors will have the chance to be among the first persons who test drive it.
