Lexus in collaboration with will.i.am have unveiled a one-off NX last night at a special event organized in Paris.
The vehicle is based on the NX 200T F Sport but adds a wider body kit combined with aluminum and carbon vinyl, a monochrome matte pearl white together with a black panoramic glass roof. It has also gained flared front and rear wings, massive 22-inch luminous black machined wheels, orange brake calipers and a lowered suspension setup.
The changes continue inside the cabin where the NX by will.i.am has a monochrome color scheme with soft Nappa leather upholstery embroidered with the "willpower" logo. Other tweaks include brushed aluminum floor mats, ten-speaker Pioneer surround sound system, custom steering wheel and four 180-degree cameras capturing panoramic photographs and video. The obtained footage can be displayed via Bluetooth on smartphones which can be wirelessly charged once placed in the center console where Lexus has installed the Wireless Charging Tray.
Motivation comes from a newly developed four-cylinder, 2.0-liter VVT-iW turbocharged gasoline engine packing 235 bhp (175 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) which grants the NX crossover with a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 7.1 seconds. We remind you production started last month and the NX represents Lexus' first model to ever be powered by a turbocharged engine.
