Default Pics: 2005 Lexus RX330



Spotted a brand new white Lexus RX330 today in Juhu. The car was running yellow number plates with MH43 - temp regn. Looked amazing and the rear looked a bit conceptish. What was a bit wierd was that the front had a "falcon" symbol and the rear had the Lexus badge with Harrier writted (instead of RX330)

hey v12,
i saw this car parked at choksey a couple of days back...it looks awesome...i didnt get much time to go enquire about the car cos i was in a hurry to get somewhere. I love the styling of this car. the mismatch of the badges i guess is because maybe the person buying it must be wanting to show the car as a lexus as it has a higher brand value

Quite possible. But then he must be not knowing his cars (or shud i say models) very well.

Anyways OT, but a couple of new Rav4's have also hit the streets. Have seen a silver black and white one.

you're right, not a supercar, but one of the latest cars to hit the streets. And about the supercar thread, there are other cars in the same section like:
  • BMW 3 Series
  • Lorinser E Class
  • Beetle
  • A Class
  • X Type
  • Prado
  • Land Cruiser
  • Peugeot 306
  • and some more...

My uncle in Dubai owns a black one .... moreover this can be considered in the league of the C-RV and Tuscon ... basically a "Softroader"
