Luxury and Performance: LS 460
Be among the first to see, touch and drive the unprecedented new LS 460, the world’s most perfect automobile. Feel its power. Luxuriate in its atmosphere. Smile at its statement.

GS 450h: No compromises.
Drive the world’s first hybrid luxury performance sedan: the GS 450h. When you get behind the wheel and feel the rush, you’ll see that when Lexus builds a hybrid, there are no compromises.

ES 350: All new.

Delicious style.
What would Taste of Lexus, Design and Innovation Edition, be without the finest food and beverages? Expect fine cuisine from noted international chefs that is sure to please the most discriminating palate. You are invited to sample the fare as often as you like.

Ownership benefits.
Discover the many advantages afforded to Lexus owners while you are attending Taste of Lexus, Design and Innovation Edition.

Culinary delights. A closed-course track. An atmosphere of luxury.

-----------------------------------------------

Donny's take on event: This is a well planned/managed ride and drive event. I have attended the last two and I always look forward to this in my ride-and-drive calendar. Its not a balls-to-the-wall event like Mazda's zoom-zoom-live, its a more genteel experience but the exposure and free runs on a multitude of models and fine catering makes for an awesome all-rounded outing. There usually is a lot of side non-automotive attraction. In the past there were golf swing lessons, massage, cosmetics demo etc.

I recommend this one Definitely a 4.5/5 ... I reserve the 0.5 as you are restricted in beating up on the cars , but the catering pushed it back up

-------------------------------------------------------------

I have signed up for Sunday October 8th at 09:00 (first time slot)...

Sign up ASAP, they fill these things fast....


edit: added pics from last year's event...

I signed up for Saturday at 10AM. With the new baby and a wife who needs my help, I am not sure I'll be able to go, but I signed up anyway. Anyone else sign up for that time slot?

EDIT: CHANGED TO SUN 9AM (see below)

Don't get me wrong, you CAN push these cars hard...have done so many times, as long as you don't drive recklessly, plow down cones, excessive wheel spin and stick to staging rules and regs, they're pretty much cool with things. The biggest Lexus event was the one they held in 2004, they had a boat load of different cars from different marques. I was jumping in and out of cars all day...I mean all day!! It was an automotive buffet, all you can drive. That one entitled you to a buffet breakfast or lunch with free gourmet cooking demos. The event in 2005 was a little scaled down and catering was a smogasbord of gourmet finger foods/hors d'ouevres and a variety of beverages. Nobody feeds you like Lexus

ok let's get a list rolling:

1) KL2DC 10/8 09:00
2) sixspeedsam 10/8 09:00
3) FrankoQ 10/8 09:00
4) BK 10/7 10:00
5)
6)
7)
8)


I am guessing by default, bavarian19, shimshimhada and ase2dais will be on the roster for the same times?

2) sixspeedsam 10/8 09:00
3) FrankoQ 10/8 09:00
4) BK 10/8 09:00
5) Dani 10/8 09:00

I would go, but I only want to go with a group, but I'm trying to keep away from Sunday events, so I'll probably sit this one out.

Someone bring their camcorder out to this one, and I'll edit up a video or something.

Make that Sunday at 9am for me, Donny.

ase2dais, Donny hooked me up initially with my CA, and if it hadn't been for him giving me the encouragement to go ahead and order the Bimmer, I might be an IS350, MB C350, or Jetta GLI driver now.
