The red car at chiriyath is a mazda Rx8. Positive. To the best of my knowledge, there was no GTO there.

There is a Lexus LX470 and a GX470. GX being the more expensive one.

Werd. Very minor differences over their Toyota brothers. Lately, whenever I see a falsely badged Cygnus or Amazon deeming itself to be a Lexus here in Bombay, I take out my rather large 'Not a Real Lexus' placard and stick it out my car's window for all to see. For all who've seen it...yes, that is me. Beware.

Did you know for example the Toyota Cygnus is more expensive than its Lexus counterpart?, and it has more features not found in the Lexus models like Night vision, adaptive cruise control ect?

And one more would be the Lexus GS300 or the Toyota Aristo in Japan that had the legendary Twin turbo 2JZGTE engine while the Lexus had to make do with the N/A version of the same.The American Lexus enthusiasts will kill for an original "Aristo".

The Rebadging in India is because Indians think that Lexus is more upmarket because most have seen/heard from the US.
