Lexus ES gets sporty with a little help from TRD

While this would unlikely to be of interest to the typical Lexus ES buyer in Australia, things in Japan are slightly different.

Developed by Toyota Racing Development, or TRD exclusively for the model in Japan, the body kit goes a long way in adding a dose of aggression to the otherwise relatively plain ES.

The racy parts consist of a new front lip, extended side skirts and bespoke rear bumper with integrated rear diffuser. All are available in a painted finish or bare material finish.

There are also two different wheel designs to choose from, including 19-inch forged alloy with a dark grey finish and larger 20-inch forged rims.

According to TRD, these parts not only add to the sporty good looks but have bring improve aerodynamics efficiency, including the unique wing mirror caps.

That’s not all, the Toyota tuner has also made improvements to areas you can’t see via a range of underfloor braces that can be optionally added to improve the car’s agility.

Inside, the only token change is to the trim piece surrounding the power window controls.

In Australia, the ES starts from $62,525 for the ES 300h with a 131kW/221Nm 2.5-litre hybrid engine.
