Lexus trademarks new name, next car to be RZ450e?

The Z is a hint that this will be a whole new model of its own. We glanced through Lexus’ history book and noted that the brand has never used the letter Z on any models that have come before.We can’t help but wo

Both cars can be seen using the entire width of the road to take the left-hander.Halfway through the corner, you can see the RX-7s tail start to step out and go into oversteer.
